Meet Our Guest – Sustainababy

Filed under: Our Guests — charndra @ 7:00 am

Let’s meet Laura, the proud owner of Sustainababy:

Hi! I’m Laura, mother, wife and founder of Sustainababy, an online eco store for babies and toddlers, and soon, children up to age six! I’ve worked as an environmental engineer for over 11 years helping large organizations improve their environmental performance, and this passion didn’t stop when I became a mother. However, my perspective on work changed, and I sought something that was a bit more flexible than my engineering career.

Thus, Sustainababy was born!

About Sustainababy

Sustainababy aims to be a one stop shop for the eco conscious parent (grandparent or friend), looking to buy that special or everyday item for their baby that is eco-friendly. We particularly have a large range of bedding (think glorious merino blankets and organic cotton sheet sets), organic cotton and merino clothing (Purebaby, Baobab, Merino Kids plus more!), toys, baby carriers and slings, modern cloth nappies and more! I was inspired to start Sustainababy when, as a time poor professional woman working through her first pregnancy, struggled to find all the products that I wanted for my son in the one place.

The name Sustainababy came to me in a moment of pregnancy insomnia and when I discovered it wasn’t being used, leapt at it. To me, Sustainababy incorporates everything about growing and nourishing a baby sustainably. From sustaining life in the true sense of the word, to sustaining this precious planet we call home.

Sustainababy supports the regeneration of degraded landscapes in South Australia, our home state, and also provides customers the opportunity to offset emissions from the delivery of their order, much as you would do when flying carbon neutral with an airline. We are very proud to be the first online retail store in Australia to offer our customers this choice.

Our Facebook fans and newsletter subscribers are notified first of any new stock we have and specials so be sure to follow us! Our Loyalty Club rewards customers who shop with us frequently by offering up to 10% off your order.

Our Planet Matters!

I have been passionate about the environment from a very young age which led me to studying environmental engineering and working in that field for many years. In my line of work , I have both seen and restored some of the most degraded and contaminated environments and know that much damage can be restored given science effort and time. Obviously, prevention is much better than cure and so I aim to educate customers in small steps they can take to reduce their environmental impact as I believe many people taking many small steps, can drive big change.

I am concerned with humans becoming more and more disconnected with nature. Like most mothers, I would like my children and grandchildren to experience the beautiful landscapes and wildlife I have and for such areas to become more widespread as we repair our damaged environment. As humans, it is important we never lose our capacity to connect with nature.

When you visit Sustainababy, make sure you have a look at…

1. Our blog where we feature our beautiful products, provide eco living tips, discuss our environmental parenting journey, have product giveaways and write technical reviews on topical eco parenting issues.

2. Our extensive eco clothing range for babies and toddlers

3. Our specials where you can grab an absolute bargain!

3 of my favourite sites are:

1. Petit Eco Kids –  Fantastic blog including eco pieces of great style!

2. Babyology – there’s a reason why this Blog is one of Australia’s most successful baby blogs.

3.  The Daily Buzz – clear and simple blog with daily snippets of stylish finds with a growing eco friendly section.

Let’s talk more!

How can we better provide the one stop eco baby shop experience we’re really trying to create? Tell me what products or brands you think Sustainababy is missing or what topics you’d love to see covered by our blog.
