I'm always looking for hidden gem companies out there. All those big box retailers and ginormous name brands, of course they get my hard-earned dough occasionally, but I'd much rather buy from my fellow mompreneurs, up-and-coming businesses, and environmentally-friendly brands. I think a lot of my readers are in the same boat, so I'm happy to introduce you to a great company I've just come across called Mezoome!
Mezoome Designs brings us adorable modern, organic and eco-friendly children and baby products - everything from wall stickers to organic baby bunting bags to crib sheets! The line is designed and manufactured by Israeli designers Anat & Maayan and distributed in the US by IMA Design Imports. I've really fallen in love with this stuff - the design is simple and modern, but oh so cute. And the materials, besides most of them being organic cotton, are SUPER SOFT!!
On both of the Mezoome products I've gotten, I saw "AZO-free" listed on the packaging. "What the heck is AZO," I thought. Off to Google I went and found out this: AZO are the most commonly used chemical compounds of dyes used, and some (a small number) are possible carcinogens. UGH!!! So, PHEW, AZO-free - yes please! Thank you, Mezoome, for green-schooling me a wee bit!
The first Mezoome product I got was their Stroller Liner. I love the pattern, popping with color but not over the top. It's reversible, machine washable, and made from 100% Egyptian cotton in Israel. It's really thick and seems like it would be super comfy for babies and toddlers. On the website it says "fits most strollers" but beyond disappointed was I when it did not fit MY stroller (Britax B-Agile). Basically, the seat belt slots on the stroller liner are fixed, so you can't feed through a seatbelt that has the shoulder and waist straps connected, as mine are. A 3-point harness would work, and even a 5-point harness would work if the shoulder and waist straps connect could be fed through the 2 slots independent from one another.
The second Mezoome product I got was the Wabbit Organic Baby Blanket. I noticed right away how thick it was - it's actually got two layers of 100% organic cotton, and of course is colored with eco-friendly azo-free dyes :) It's a very simple design, but very cute and big (40"x32")! I can't wait for the snow to finally melt - I'm totally taking this blanket to the park with my little guy for many a picnic and soaking up some Vitamin D! Ahhhhhh Spring, please come soon!!
Long story short, if you're looking for some eco-friendly totally cute stuff for your little one, or for a baby shower, definitely give Mezoome a looksy-loo!! And if you're on social, check 'em out on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest!
