Gifted – I was gifted this product for my business showcase series, all views and opinions are my own!
This time I’m getting into the world of babies. Sounds weird but as soon as we’re born we’re exposed to so much and it’s important that the things we have are of the best quality. That doesn’t mean they have to be the most expensive! We need to stop giving our children single use plastic items and clothing that isn’t good for the skin.
These organic muslin swaddled from Bloomsbury Mill are the embodiment of exactly what I’m talking about. If you are having a child or know someone who is and you’re thinking about getting a gift, take 5 minutes to do some research. What are the materials used, are they filled with chemicals and find some reviews on the company before purchasing from them.
Blue & white organic muslin swaddles
So you know my thoughts about getting children eco friendly and chemical free products. I now want to talk about what this post is about, muslin swaddles. All children will need these, just like bibs, it’s a way of life in my opinion and if a child doesn’t throw up on you, they don’t like you!
Let’s talk about these specific swaddles, shall we? To start with I want to point out that they’re 100% made from organic cotton, how amazing is that. No harsh chemicals, good for the skin and the exact thing you want to be giving to a small child to make sure they have a healthy life. They also soften with every wash and are perfect for soft, delicate skin!
Their products are ethically sourced. The company follow the best industry values and practices. They promise that every product is created the best possible way which means they get regularly audited on their factories, materials and so much more. When a company promises to do this much with their products, you know they’re worth it.
Who Are Bloomsbury Mill?
So Bloomsbury Mill makes products for babies and children. You may have heard of them before. I’ve had a lot of friends who have had children recently and I’m always stumped on what to get them. I know they’re going to have loads of clothes and toys and I might not agree ethically on everything they get, which is why I love Bloomsbury Mill.
The products that they sell are colourful, have amazing patterns and look really nice. When you’re young you take everything in and bright colours are the best! Dull colours often have a negative effect on children.
Bloomsbury Mill, if you’ve not heard of them then you might not be familiar and you might not shop with them but that shouldn’t be the case! Whenever I find a new company one of the things I do is go to Trustpilot and see what the reviews are like. Bloomsbury Mill have an excellent rating on there and it shows 5 stars but it’s really 4.8 which is still really high!
The Important of Buying Better
The amount of single use plastic that ends up in landfills every year is getting worse. Clothes that use unethical materials also take a lot longer to biodegrade and that’s a huge problem. If you can buy better, you’re not only doing better for the people you’re gifting these products to but you’re also doing your bit for the environment and our planet!
I hope you’ve taken away something from this post. If you’re buying gifts or products for your child, take a look at Bloomsbury Mill, see what they have to offer and get something! I will also point out that a lot of companies charge way more than they should for products like this, Bloomsbury Mill do not!
