Getting rid of plastic in the household is a very noble commitment yet a tough thing to consistently live by, hopefully just at this present time. While there are so many alternative resources to plastic, another question that we should ask ourselves is this: are our alternative materials to plastic renewable?
For example, the best alternatives to plastic when it comes to kitchenware and tableware are ceramics, glass, stainless steel and silicone. They are all awesome alternatives! Doesn’t it bother you that when you dispose these things, they need to be discarded properly and recycled systematically. That’s a great thing though, but aren’t there any other materials that are more naturally made, totally renewable and easily recyclable? There is!
EKOBO, a French maker of sustainable home products made of bamboo, gives us an awesome solution for environmental concerns. Check out these awesome eco-sustainable products they got for our little ones, under their BIOBU line:
BIOBU Bambino by EKOBO
BIOBU Bambino offers a complete set of tableware essentials for kids. They have plates, bowls and cups in a variety of beautiful colors. Made from biodegradable bamboo fiber and 100% food-grade melamine binder. They’re dishwasher-safe, but not microwave-safe. We suggest heating the food in your ceramic serving plate before serving it on these bamboo plates.
These bamboo tableware goodies are available in individual pieces and in four-pack sets of different colors. They’re colorful not only for the kids, but they’re also stylish for parents and cool adults to use kid-sized plates for desserts and salads, 20oz. bowls for cereals and 4oz. cups for fruity snacks and punch. They’re also great for the family to use in picnics.
BIOBU Animo by EKOBO
Another original and awesome must-have for kids is their line of beach toys. If your family is going to the beach, which is supposedly an unexploited part of nature, why bring plastic toys? We hope you haven’t gotten your kids plastic buckets and shovels yet, because the BIOBU Animo bamboo beach toys are cuter and more unique.
Bucket Pelican is not your ordinary beach bucket. This yellow thing sure looks like a pelican! It makes gathering water more fun for imaginative play. And to add more excitement, you just might as well get your munchkin a sand play set of three sea creature shovels to keep the pelican company: a manta ray shovel named Ray, a turtle sifter called Shelley, and a whale scoop named Moby! A word of warning though, your child might be the envy of all the other kids in the beach.
Ekobo is an eco-responsible company that designs contemporary products from a renewable resource: bamboo. Their extensive product lines range from kitchenware, tableware, bath accessories, decorative furniture and lighting, and of course cute products for kids (BIOBU line).
All Ekobo products are free from BPA, PVC, phthalates, petroleum, and all other harmful chemicals.
What else is there to find? This French brand makes super stylish products that make a contemporary home stand out, and all their products are guilt-free because of their 100% sustainability.
Admit it. One of the worst thing that parents hate the most is MESS. Who would rejoice over spilled food? But then again, if you don’t want a messy baby, then don’t have a baby! How about just laugh off the mess your munchkin is making and just enjoy the moment?But that doesn’t mean you don’t have to [...]
A one-piece, silent, and effective breast pump that really works? Yes, ONE PIECE. Too good to be true, right? Breastfeeding moms have all been used to manual breast pumps that have multiple parts that need to be cleaned, sterilized, and assembled properly or else they wouldn’t work. Same with electric pumps that have many parts as well, plus the electric [...]
When our great grandparents used to cloth diaper their babies, diaper rashes were unheard of, and toilet-training was naturally easier. Those were the awesome advantages of traditional cloth diapering. But then some inconveniences were probably accidental messes and leaks, frequency of washing, and time spent on washing, as industrial development started taking much of our time working for a living [...]
If you are a new parent, it’s just hard not to worry about baby’s common discomforts like stuffy nose, gassiness, fever, and all things that make your munchkin fussy. But that’s what’s going to train you into his trusted doctor mom, so fret not! And if you’re hesitant about giving baby relief through oral and topical medication, so are [...]
On days when you don’t feel good, you may not know it but sometimes all you need to instantly feel better is a hug. A nicely tight hug has been studied to be somewhat therapeutic, where a person gets to release the happy hormone called oxytocin. But do you secretly wish hugs can literally last all day even when [...]
Eczema, or topical dermatitis, is very common among children and may be caused by a variety of factors such as allergies, asthma, genetics, and several environmental factors. The commercially available and acceptable treatment these days is topical corticosteroid cream or ointment, which is made with synthetic steroids. But when such treatment used very often and for a long time, skin [...]
Most women can never have too many bags, perhaps diaper bag included. Good for them if they enjoy transferring all of baby’s stuff from one diaper bag to another, but not me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t mind flaunting the same old style of diaper bag everyday, heck I would love to carry [...]
Rubber ball is a staple toy in every household. It’s probably every baby’s first favourite toy that’s something she/he would hold for the longest time and never get tired of playing with. So it just makes sense for a rubber ball to conveniently function as a teether too, right? The Hevea Natural Rubber Teething Star Ball is the answer!This ball is completely [...]
For once in a young girl's life, she will want to try acting like a grownup. She would start putting on her mom's makeup and outfits in front of mom's vanity mirror. A girl may have her own favourite female celebrities that she's dying to imitate, but surely her first favourite woman to mimic is her mom. However, there [...]
