Blundstone Boot Review and Contest

Sponsored by: Blundstone Boots Canada

Hosted by: Mommy Footprint

Screen shot 2015-01-27 at 10.38.00 AM

Have you heard of Blundstone Boots? They are getting really popular in Vancouver, but what nailed down my desire to own a pair was visiting a Tack shop before Christmas. The equestrian store was filled with horse back riding gear and they’ve carried these boots for years because of their functionality and long lasting design. That is what sold me on these boots. Listening to people that have loved this brand for many years, because these boots do what so few brands do these days…and that is last. Over and over the testimonials from adults include that they’ve owned these boots for 20 years and just get them resoled. You also hear about the comfort these boots provide as well.  What is not to love!?

About Blundstone Boots Canada

“Worth it.” That’s what people say. The only problem with Blundstone boots is that they never seem to wear out. Oh, people try. But after a few years of kicking the bejeez out of them, they’re more comfortable than ever and still going strong. Expensive? Nope, they get cheaper by the day. Blundstone Canada is the Canadian distributor of Blundstone boots.

Jaxx Denim Bean Bag Chair Giveaway

Sponsored by: Jaxx Bean Bags

Hosted by: Mommy Footprint


jaxxbeanbag

What is more fun than a bean bag chair? Well, a brand that has classic designs that your kids won’t out-grow and bean bag chairs that are made in the USA are a pretty big deal. We’ve been on the look out for a bean bag chair for years and the chairs produced by Jaxx are guaranteed to have a design that matches the personality of anyone in your family; young children to adults! We were sent this Saxx 4′ denim bean bag chair and the size has been perfect for all my kids. It’s roomy enough to get all four of them settled, but usually one of my boys can be found with a book, snuggled into the large structure. The ECOFOAM that this company refers to is the fact they recycle previously used foam from trusted sources. I asked about flame retardents and was told “”We guarantee our foam is BPDE free. We source it from an organization that does not and has never used BPDE in their foam.” The regulations regarding flame retardants in general within the US are about to become more strict in 2015 which is good news for everyone.

About Jaxx Bean Bags

This isn’t your grandma’s bean bag. The thought of bean bags conjures up wood-paneled basements and bellbottoms—as well as endless shifting to remain comfortable in a Styrofoam pellet-filled leather bag. Jaxx Bean Bags have a design for everyone and has dreamed up a fluffy cloud 9 to adapt to your room and body needs.

We are excited to bring you this awesome Saxx 4′ Bean Bag Chair – Denim Giveaway! Bean bag chairs are a great size for older kids and this model is 32 lbs of quality fabric and EcoFoam.

The denim bean bag chair creates a reading nook wherever it goes. We’ve never had so much interest in a box arriving at our house and if you win this contest, our generous sponsor Jaxx, wants one of our lucky readers to have that chance! That way you can see how great they are for yourself! So, let’s get on to the giveaway!

One lucky winner will win this

Jaxx Saxx 4′ Bean Bag Chair – Denim ($229 value)!

Sponsored by: Nature’s Path Hosted by: Mommy Footprint

If you are travelling down the road to limiting GMOs (Genetically Modified Food), artificial dye, highly processed sugars, and for lack of better word ‘JUNK’ in your kid’s diet, you’ve probably already tried and fallen in love with Natures Path Organic and their EnviroKidz brand. Having moved my oldest child away from his favorite GMO (corn based) cereal this summer, I couldn’t have done it without Nature’s Path alternatives on hand. He has now transitioned away from these junky cereals and they won’t ever be making another appearance in our home. We keep Gorilla Munch on hand for occasional dry snacking and anyone wanting a quick bowl of cereal in the morning loves Koala Crisp.

Nature’s Path has earned the trust and respect of parents looking for Non-GMO Verified options, along with many gluten-free and organic products. We have also enjoyed Nature’s Path granola and bars for occasional convenient snacking so I’m excited for the lucky winner of this contest!

About EnviroKidz

EnviroKidz Crispy Rice Bars are made with simple, wholesome, certified gluten free ingredients, so you’ll be happy adding them to the lunchbox – and kids will be even happier come snack time. They’re gluten free, organic, and full of the great taste kids love.

Oto Design – Fleece Made Eco

Mommy Footprint is starting 2014 with a passion for locally produced fashion. Future fashion posts will explain why the concept of sustainably made clothing is so important at a global level. The term ‘fast fashion’ and it’s parallel to ‘fast food’ is shocking because both are produced cheaply and quickly which lends a toll on the environment and human health. More to come on this topic.

Help me welcome  Co-owners Rachael and Allison who are the proud business owners behind Oto Design. My twins received an Oto dress and sweater before Christmas and live in them!  Not only does Oto Design produce fashion that kids love to wear, but they’ve done it with fleece that doesn’t contain flame retardants. My daughter that stays clear of polyester because of skin sensitivities has loved the comfort of her Oto dress. She also has sensory reactions to clothing and because the seams are on the outside of the Oto clothing, this isn’t an issue for kids or adults normally sensitive to internally sewn seams or tags. Check out the slideshow of a few Oto designs (yes they have a kids and adult line) and then we’ll talk more about manufacturing and a fun contest!

Oto Design is obviously very cute but they have some really cool business practices.  Here are some inside track facts on Oto Design:

-  made in Canada, Vancouver to be exact.
–  growing, streamlined production of their lines mean local jobs are created in Vancouver.
– Oto sources Polartec fleece that doesn’t contain flame retardants (and is made in the USA).
– Oto fleece is manufactured from recycled pop bottles.
– support two moms with a vision, great product, and a dream. I know big box stores sell fleece, but it’s mass produced using fast fashion practices and will contain flame retardants.
– Oto recommends spot washing the sweaters and then occasional wash in cold water, hang to dry. Ocean activists will tell you why this is amazing advice when a product is made using polyester. **

Here is your chance to win an Oto Design sweater. The lucky winner will win a sweater for an adult or child so it’s a great contest for all Mommy Footprint readers. The contest is open from January 29th until February 4th at midnight and all participants must reside in North America. We love the idea of an Oto Design for a special Valentines gift, so you might want to take advantage of their Valentine sale by entering the word LOVE at checkout until Feb 1st.

** Our washing machines aren’t manufactured with small enough filters to capture plastic sediment from polyester or other synthetic matierals from washing clothes. Toxic dyes used to produce clothing would also be a problem. If you imagine these micro sediments flushed into our ocean from washing and the animals that consume it – scary to think that small amount of dye and plastic is consumed by fish that we end up eating.
