Giveaway: Going Green With Bloume Baby

I recently had the sincere pleasure of getting to know Annie Totten of Bloume Baby thanks to Andrika of Nursery Notations. What I love most about this blogging world is that I get to meet creative and interesting people thanks to an online medium we can all bond over. Now in my opinion, online baby boutiques are becoming a dime a dozen and it really takes some digging to uncover the good ones. Annie is one of those good ones. Her products are top notch because she hand picks every one and her website aesthetics are a real standout. After the initial attraction, I spent a good deal of time trying to get to know her products and what she and her company are all about. It’s a message I am excited to preach to you today with a super giveaway to follow!

I am amazed and shocked by all the options I have with baby number two. The little things in life seem to be healthier, more simple and pure thanks to the evolution of modern baby products. 3.5 years ago however, I did not have these options. Bottles did not have to be BPA free and who knows what my crib mattress was really made of? I feel somewhat guilty that my first son was born just shy of the green trend. While some eco was available, I didn’t know enough to seek them out. Only if  I had moved to Los Angeles sooner! Now a days, you can’t avoid it and I often think how the choices must overwhelm new moms. There is an incredible amount of vocabulary to learn in terms of baby gear and accessories. Throw in eco-friendly buzz words such as green, sustainable, renewable, carbon, and VOC – It can make your head explode.  Annie has simplified all of this and now one mom’s research can benefit you at Bloume baby.

In Annie’s pre-baby life, she held senior level merchandising roles with companies such as GapKids, BabyGap, Babystyle and Disney.  So when it came time to make purchasing decisions for her own baby, she developed a great philosophy, “Babies come to us completely pure,” says Totten. “I believe it is our daily duty and our place to protect them. It is our responsibility to take care of each other and our planet. My son, Jack, inspires me daily – I want to give him the best and healthiest life possible. My passion for giving all babies what they deserve, a pure beginning, is what ultimately inspired me to launch the Bloume baby brand.”

If I could do it all over again I would have started with my registry. Bloume baby offers a registry service for expecting moms to kick off their eco-friendly ways down to the gift wrap! In fact, each gift registry comes with a discount code that will allow your guests to receive free gift wrap. So what are you waiting for? Oh yes, the giveaway! Here’s a sampling of going green goodies one lucky project nursery reader will win this week:

Look familiar? It’s a basket filled with products seen at our recent baby event. It was such a hit that we wanted to extend the same gift basket to one of our readers.

WIN IT: Bloume Baby is giving away a basket of eco-friendly treats (as shown above) for mom and baby to enjoy. The prize will consist of (8) items themed for a boy or girl and valued at $200. Browse the selection at Bloume baby and enter the contest by commenting with the “green” item you want most and why. Contest ends Friday, June 11, 2010 at 11:59pm pst.  Spread the word for extra chances to enter.

    I loved our Sophie La Giraffe and the Chan-Pie-Gnon mushrooms when my girls were teething…I felt they were safe for my girls to chew on, and they’re really cute as well. Would love to win this for a friend who is expecting. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    I really really heart Sophie!! My favorite teether I had for my son and something I always give as a shower gift to friends. Now we are expecting a baby girl in a few weeks and can’t wait to get another one for us!

    The Bloume Baby Shop is fabulous! One of their must haves for me is their “Large Handmade Organic
    Crochet Rabbit. I like that it is made from 100% organic cotton, handmade and is a socially responsible
    brand. Every child needs a eco-conscious, cuddly friend!
    Many thanks, Cindi

    I can’t think of any place where a baby spends more time than in her crib, so it seems to me that “being green” in the choice of nursery bedding is wise. I like the Garden Blossom Crib Set for that reason!!

    I love the organic swaddle blankets. They are the perfect weight for the warm climate I live in! I also love that these products are green, it’s never too early to start teaching our children to take care of our planet.

  75. 75

    I love the Organic Thermal Tee because it’s pretty and 100% organic cotton-which is so much healthier for a little person’s skin!

    I am interested in the baby sunscreen and also the wooden toys. Skin cancer (cancer in general) runs in my family and I want to protect my daughter’s skin as much as possible. She loves the outdoors and water, so it is very important to find the right product that wont cause irritation but also protects.

  102. 102

    I would love Sophie the giraffe. I have a small, wooden giraffe from Africa that my daughter LOVES to play with and probably shouldn’t. It would be wonderful to replace it with this adorable giraffe.

  103. 103

    I would love to have the Handmade Organic Crochet Deer! It’s super cute, and when I was a kid I loved soft things and stuffed animals!

    Um, hello – MUST I choose one thing? How about a category? Ok! I choose the organic baby clothing category. The clothing is darling, they look amazingly comfy and I am sure any baby would be living a dream wearing them :)

    The Bloume Baby website has some great stuff…. really like the 3 pack of baby cloths from Chetna Organic Project in central India. Not only are these cloths made from organic cotton, they also give back to the farmers to help overcome poverty. Good for my baby and good for the globe.

    There are so many items I love. I adore the shopping cart that is out of stock and the Arabian rocking horse. I wish I had organic burp cloths and glass bottles, though, too.

    I would love the blanket, as it will keep my baby warm and cuddly at night. You can also never have too many blankets.

  179. 179

    I love the Cashmere Icon Blanket. I’m planning a sunny yellow nursery for my upcoming baby girl and it can be really hard to find things baby sized that fit the mood I want. Not to mention… cashmere! Lucky little girl!

    Being a first time mom, I could really use all the items in the giveaway. But, the BPA free bottle would have to be the item I would want the most. I have a feeling I will get plenty of cute toys, blankets and outfits as gifts, but not as many necessities such as bottles. My husband and I live a “green” lifestyle and wouldn’t have it any other way for our little one. Thanks to Bloume there are so many choices.

  193. 193
  194. 194

    love Sophie—not full of bad plastics, and my 4 month old could really use one about now!!

  195. 195

    I am in LOVE with that giraffe toy! I have a little newborn boy and im sure he would love to have it when he starts teething :0)

  196. 196

    I am doing some research online for my 1st time mom-to-be girlfriend. I absolutely love bloume items, and as a mom to an almost 2yo toddler would love to get & recommend the organic reversible pant in baby blue!

    It would be so cute if our boys would be dressed in similar bloume items!

  201. 201

    I love Sophie the giraffe! She is so cute and I have heard that she is a MUST HAVE! I never knew she was green too!

  202. 202

    Um… let’s just say I love *all* the wooden toys. I’m pregnant with my first, and I want my babe to have all wooden and textile toys. I’m not a fan of plastic, breakable junk toys.

    Just subscribed to the newsletter/website – am looking forward to all of the ideas.

    I would looovvee to have the Dwell Organic Baby Bedding Set – the simplicity and feel of it is exactly what we have tried to accomplish when decorating the nursery. We have been eying the set for a months, but don’t know if we will really splurge on it.

  207. 207
  208. 208

    My first-born loved Sophie the Giraffe and I know baby boy #2 will love it as well! All the items look great! :o)

  209. 209

    The kids on the blog all look so cute in their organic clothing! =) It’s hard to choose one thing as I’m tempted by all the blankets and the market slings. I have also heard great things about Sophie the Giraffe though, so would have to try her out for Baby #2!

  210. 210
  211. 211

    I so want the Garden Blossom Crib Set because 1) It is gorgeous, and 2) a baby spends so much time in the crib I think chemical-free bedding is a must.

  212. 212

    I absolutely love the website and gift basket. I am definitely going green with my second baby and this place seems to have it all. Makes my life much easier. I love the crib set since that is the one item the baby will benefit the most from. Not to mention I didn’t win the crib giveaway:)

  213. 213

    What a great giveaway! Choosing just one thing is tough. I love the wooden tricycle and all of the girl’s clothing!!

  214. 214

    I would love to try the Bloume Baby Bath Soap and Body Lotion for my babies skin.

    Thank you so much for the chance to win.

    I want the 9oz Glass Bottle – because I don’t trust the plastic bottles (even the ones that say they’re safe), I can sterilize glass easily, and it can be recycled when it’s no longer needed.

  219. 219

    I am totally in love with the Bloume baby’s Organic Graphic Hooded Sweater…that little dog in that red wagon is really speaking to me! Just the most adorable “little Boy” item ever!!!

    I just love the “Newborn Cashmere Sweater Set.” The reason I love it is that it would be a gift of luxury for my 3rd grandchild, (my son’s first child.) It is so classic and would be sure to become an heirloom to pass down. Love the Bloume Baby website. Thanks for introducing it!

    Baby Sunscreen. It gets very hot & humid here in Kansas City and we love to swim. My granddaughter is very pale so she needs sunscreen. What could be better than Green Sunscreen for her delicate skin? Thanks so much for this offer. camsgram@kc.rr.com

    I love the Arabian rocking horse! So many great items to choose from. Would be nice to have in the nursery.
