We promise to do everything we can to keep your family healthy and happy. Children are highly vulnerable to chemical toxins, and should avoid them. We want to make sure you know what’s in the products that you put in, on and around your family. We continually seek advice on materials and Chemicals to Avoid, from a variety of safety organizations and health experts, including the Environmental Working Group, Healthy Child Healthy World, Leaping Bunny, Parent Tested, Parent Approved and others. Together, we work for you.
We also look at the business practices of potential suppliers from safety and usability, to sustainability and cost. We will let you know about ingredient and product changes or recalls. And as our high standards evolve, we are happy to take back any product that doesn't meet them, and we will offer a replacement, or refund your money.
Our products are really curated by us before we sell them. The things we sell have also become our go-to products for our own families. And when you call or email us, it is someone on our team who will respond. We really are here to help.
We promise to do good by you, your family and the world around you. Each item we sell aligns with our commitment to fostering the growth and development of healthy and happy families and communities. We make these promises because we are part of a family too, just like you. You have enough decisions to make. Let us take something off your plate.
The Eco-Traits reflect unique, environmentally friendly characteristics of the products we sell. The icons below make it easy to shop at ecomom. Rather than acting as certifications, Eco-Traits describe products. Each week, the Green Compliance Team (GCT) uses the Eco-Traits to review supplier manufacturing standards, product composition and uses in order to determine whether or not products are a fit for ecomom's undertaking to make sure it's all good. Basically, we look for good companies that provide products that are good for your family.
