Today is World Kindness Day.
What is World Kindness Day? – It’s a day celebrated annually on 13th November. On this day, participants attempt to make the world a better place by celebrating and promoting good deeds and pledging acts of kindness, either as individuals or as organisations.
Will you be doing anything for World Kindness Day? I’ve sorted out some baby clothes and toys to take to our local Children’s Hospice shop. We did this with our toddlers stuff around the age that little dottie is now – 6 months old.
I’ve been reading about the Humble Smile Foundation, a really great cause to tackle oral healthcare around the world, so thought it would be apt to mention on World Kindness Day.
The Humble Co. are doing a kind gesture, for every Humble Brush purchased, a proportion goes to funding the Humble Smile Foundation – a cause dedicated to delivering professional and sustainable healthcare projects to the areas where they are most needed around the world.
I was a little girl when I first got obsessed with stationery. That love has never gone. My older sister travels for work and always brings back a pen or two from her travels around the world. One of my favourites was a strange looking pen from Utah!
When Printkick, a business and individual promotional stationery supplier got in touch asking if I wanted to review a few items from their range, I couldn’t say no. To be honest it’s great to add some supplies to my stationery pot.
We love to try our new products and the last couple of weeks it’s been the turn of the Eco by Naty nappies. Over the past two and half years I have tried out many different nappy brands with baby girl and now baby dottie. I’m being honest here and some were rubbish, leaked and felt wet all the time. There is one brand I do keep going back to as it fits all of our requirements. But today I’m here to talk about Eco by Naty.
Before I get onto the review of the nappies, I will tell you a little bit about Eco by Naty. First question is who are they? Well, Eco by Naty are a Swedish brand thought up by a corporate lawyer who has changed career from being a lawyer to an ecological entrepreneur. They have launched the first biodegradable and environmentally friendly disposable nappy. As well as a range of baby skin care, wipes and pull-ups.
Today on the blog I have a post from Jackie over at Reusable Menstrual Cups, sharing with us the new on the market eco-friendly feminine hygiene products. As you know I had a baby 9 weeks ago so haven’t had to think about sanitary towels or things for a long time. As my body is settling down now I’m sure my period will be here within a few months (At least by breastfeeding it stalls it for a time!)
Beyond Sanitary Pads and Tampons
20 years ago, there were very few choices for period products. They mostly consisted of pads and tampons. Sure, a few people were using eco-friendly things like sea sponge tampons, or the original, modern-day menstrual cup (the Keeper), or sewing their own cloth pads, but they were the exceptions.
These days, menstrual cups are far more popular and there are an abundance of choices for things like cloth pads and organic disposables. I’ll share a few of the new things happening in the world of eco-friendly feminine products including more choices for menstrual cups, a reusable option for period sex, premium cloth pads, and organic disposables.
These past few weeks we have been trying out the Bambo Nature nappies. Since having my daughter over two years ago we have tried and tested many nappy brands to find the right ones for us. In fact until I was contacted by Bambo Nature I’d never heard of them, so I’m sharing our experiences with these eco-friendly nappies with you as a first time user.
I will let you know now before I get into the review that they are amazingly soft and I don’t know how I havent found these nappies before!
As you know I’m always up for trying out new products and this past weekend we have been trying out these great bamboo disposable nappies, (or diapers if you prefer!) from a wonderful little family orientated company called Andy Pandy based in the US. They specialise in eco-friendly baby products. They are on sale in the UK at the moment so accessible to everyone.
