Why you should vote for Sustainababy
Sustainababy is a one-stop eco-parenting shop and a valuable information source for environmentally conscious parents. Founded in 2010 by environmental engineer and eco mum Laura Trotta, Sustainababy aims to guide their customers to make more environmentally responsible purchases. With regular blog contributions by a team of environmental professionals (and mums!), it’s easy to be inspired to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle.
Sustainababy offers one of the most comprehensive selections of organic and eco-friendly baby and children’s products available online. With a large proportion either designed or made in Australia or New Zealand, Sustainababy caters for customers wishing to ‘shop local.’
Sustainababy is a leader in eco-retailing. The company contributes to the regeneration of degraded South Australia landscapes and customers have the choice to offset emissions for each order delivery. Sustainababy was the first online store in Australia to offer this service.
I’m very proud of how far Sustainababy has come in just over a year in business and am honoured to be recognised by being a finalist in the 2011 Bio-Oil AusMumpreneur Awards. Sustainababy has brought me much joy and satisfaction and has enabled me to be the ‘available’ mother that I wanted to be to my son. If you could help Sustainababy take out the People’s Choice award for Best Boutique/Store it would mean the world to me and my family.
Thank you in advance for your vote and always, your ongoing support,
