Celebrating Earth Day: A Commitment to Mother Earth & Moms Everywhere
Earth Day is here and it's a great reason to stop and focus on the health and well being of our environment. In fact, all it it takes are few small changes that can have a major impact.
Here at Mum & You, we make it easy for parents to live a more sustainable earth-friendly lifestyle through our commitment to the creation of eco-friendly parenting products that perform as well as they protect.
This year’s Earth Day theme is “Restore the Earth”, highlighting a continued global focus to use natural processes and innovative thinking to restore the world’s ecosystems*(*earthday.org).
We also like to think that this is the type of thinking that powers the Mum & You product team; with each of our products thoughtfully designed to leave our earth better than how we found it. And without parents having to compromise on key aspects of quality and convenience.

Sustainability Without Compromise:
As parents, we’re always looking for the best products. From meal time to play time, we read labels, reviews and source all the recommendations we can get.
However, we always found that the sustainable products came with a compromise: often exchanging sustainability for comfort, performance or convenience. That’s why the Mum & You team got to work on a new solution: eco-friendly baby products and skincare that are of the highest quality.
Below are a few highlights from some of our most loved earth & baby friendly products: developed by moms for moms everywhere.

Eco-Friendly Wipes: Convenience with Conscience
Celebrating Earth Day beyond the April 22nd date through the use of sustainable, eco-friendly products is one way we can all contribute to the restoration of our environment. As the only Green Seal Certified, plant-based baby wipes in the nation, Mum & You meets the highest standard for green, clean and sustainable wet wipes while continuing to provide high performing, comfortable products for babies.
Our baby wipes are not only plastic free, but our lab tests show they biodegrade in 15 days in landfill conditions*. That means in just two short weeks of use, you’ve minimized the impact on the environment by almost 100 years. That’s right...the average plastic-containing baby wipe takes about 100 years to biodegrade.
Mum & You biodegradable baby wipes combine convenience with conscious: right down to our 100% recyclable packaging. We continue to achieve what others simply cannot: eco-friendly baby products that meet the highest level of performance, sustainability, and comfort.
*Biodegradation testing in line with ASTM D5511 showed 86.6% biodegradation after 15 days of testing, compared to the positive reference (cellulose), this translates to 100.7% relative biodegradation. Wipes will Home compost according to European Standards EN13432.

Mom's Sustainable Skincare:
Eco-friendly baby products aren’t the only product line parents need to be wary of when it comes to protecting the environment and their health.
While we tend to ache over every ingredient that touches our baby’s skin and stomachs, many of us don’t bat an eye when it comes to the environmentally unsafe and unhealthy products we put on our own skin.
Women's skincare products play another big role in the contribution to dangerous chemicals being leached into our environment and onto our skin.
Thankfully, you don’t need to choose between natural products and effective ingredients any longer. Mum & You has created a complete skincare line that starts with naturally derived ingredients and ends with high performing results.
Here are some of the best features of the Mum & You Skincare line that your skin (and the environment) will thank you for:
- Naturally derived ingredients
- Registered Vegan
- Plastic-free, recyclable packaging
- Dermatologically tested
- Midwife approved
Our skincare is perfect for time strapped moms who want the best for their skin, their children and the environment. Grab your bundle today.
