I love finding shops with not only eco-friendly goods, but gorgeous items and prints as well. Öko Creations is one such shop from owners Melanie and Marie-Nöel. I just can't stop browsing all the pretty, colorful images and wishing I had them all! The goods are also made of organic cotton (hooded towel), merino wool (baby mittens) or hemp (diaper bag), one of the worlds most eco-friendly fabrics. Hemp can be grown anywhere in the world, with little effort. It helps the ground it grows in by aerating and returning nutrients. It takes the place weeds would like to inhabit because it grows faster than they do. I was amazed at the beautiful items made with this amazing plant and got to try out some for myself.
I was even more excited to try out the mama cloth pads, believe it or not. I received a heavy flow pad, a mini liner, and a thong liner. All are made with the hemp and organic cotton fabric combination as well as a PUL backing. The fabric is soft throughout and deceptively thin. Hemp absorbs a lot more than any other fabric so they are great for mama cloth if you want thin with high flow capacity. The sizes are generous in terms of length and width. I have no complaints about movement because they sat very well on my underwear. The heavy-flow pad and the thong liner both have double snaps. That also helps with the adherence to your panty gusset as well as the ability to stay where you put it. Your movement is not hindered by these pads and liners. I loved the almost non-existent feel of them, it was like I was wearing nothing! You can't say that about many pads.
I was very happy with my items from Öko Creations. They also have a lot of other items for both mom and baby, from nursing pads to diapers liners. Since all are made with eco-friendly fabrics, they are kind to the earth as well as our skin. Follow the store on Facebook as well, sometimes they have contests. Merci beaucoup to Melanie for offering a gift certificate to the store for Green Your Summer hop!
