Make Every Day Earth Day

Going green doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Every little bit helps!

Here are some of the Heart-Hugs family’s favorite eco-friendly tips:

  • Use reuseable grocery bags, snack bags and water bottles.
  • Make your own natural cleaners for your home. Did you know that spraying surfaces with vinegar and then hydrogen peroxide kills as many germs as bleach? Baking soda also makes a great scouring agent. An added benefit is that homemade cleaners are extremely cost-effective!
  • Use cloth diapers or elimination communication. Not only does it cut down on landfill waste, it protects your baby from being exposed to harsh chemicals every day. We have tried a wide range of brands/types of cloth diapers and are happy to provide information and recommendations even though we don’t yet carry cloth diapers at Heart-Hugs.
  • Shop at your local farmer’s market or participate in a local coop.
  • Pay your bills online.
  • Wash clothing in cold water with an energy-efficient washing machine.
  • Recycle! Most cities have single-stream recycling now which makes it so easy!

Those are just a few of the multitude of ways to protect the Earth, as well as your loved ones! We would love to hear your favorite tips for going green! Please come and share them on our facebook page! If we each commit to making just one eco-friendly choice for the coming year, together we can have a huge impact on the environment and the Earth we are leaving behind for our children!

On the way to Heart-Hugs:

DIDYMOS has had some amazing limited edition releases lately! Their hemp wraps are very popular and, once broken in, are so cushy and supportive!

Check out these new hemp releases:

DIDYMOS Tendrils Sun

These arrived in the U.S. on the 18th so estimated arrival is end of this week/early next week. For those that have already ordered, they will be shipped to you via priority mail as soon as they arrive!

The popular Ginkgo pattern now with Hemp: DIDYMOS Ginkgos Linden

These left Germany on the 19th. Transport generally takes 2-3 weeks so we should have them sometime in the beginning of May.

Weekly update April 13, 2013 and New REWARDS Program!

We’ve been keeping busy at Heart-Hugs and I didn’t even realize that I missed a week of updates! Sorry about that!

Kokadi

We survived our first Kokadi stocking last week when Kokadi Nixe was released. 😉 The response was incredible (and fast!) and we wish we had even more to offer you! They are on their way to us and we should have them around the end of the month. As soon as they get here, they will be shipped to those that ordered via priority mail.

We have the new Limited Edition Kokadi Rosarot Stars (Sterne Rosarot) available to order in sizes 3-7! These should be arriving around the end of the month as well. This wrap is perfect for your wearing your little princess in…or for any mom that likes pink!

Sterne Rosarot

Like the star pattern but pink isn’t your thing? Kokadi Glamour Stars are on their way as well!

DIDYMOS

We are constantly placing new orders with DIDYMOS because they have frequent new releases. If you see anything that you would like that is available on their site that we don’t have at Heart-Hugs, please e-mail me and I will add it to our next order!

DIDYMOS Kolibri Petrol is in stock and ready to ship! I think it is even more beautiful in person!

DIDYMOS Kolibri Petrol

As of April 11, DIDYMOS Geckos Terra Nature wraps are in the United States. Didy has had many popular Gecko releases but I must say that this is my favorite of them all! I like how they blended the turquoise in with the earth tones.

ttr-724_stamm_7

In that order, we also have the popular DIDYMOS Lisca Minos. This classic DIDYMOS herringbone pattern makes a great wrap for all ages, newborn to toddler!

Looking for a beautiful linen wrap for this summer? DIDYMOS Ornament Karibik with Linen may be just what you are looking for! These beauties left Germany on the 10th. Time through customs can vary but we hope to have these at Heart-Hugs soon, especially now that the weather is warming up around here!

ttr-797_stamm_6

Have you seen DIDYMOS Tendrils Sun with Hemp? DIDYMOS is really coming out with some great new patterns lately! I am excited to see a hemp release because they are very supportive for older babies and toddlers. The bright, cheerful color is icing on the cake!
