Regular readers will know by now that although we’re not ready to live in a commune ( I would definitely consider it, Scatty Dad might need some convincing) I do prefer to source natural, ethical products wherever possible and practical. You can mix natural and ethical with modern and practical and I think as a family we are a good example of this. If we all do our bit, it will make a difference. I’m very concious of how we leave our mark on this earth and hope that it is a positive one rather than a gaping wound. With that in mind, I answered a facebook status on the Mama Pack page last week and am now proud to say that I am official Mama Pack Guest Writer!!!
Mama Pack is the ‘ethically influenced and influencing’ sample pack for pregnant ladies and Mums. It is the green alternative to the Bounty Pack and I think that as public opinion for that particular freebie seems to be cooling, Mama Pack are an alternative which I hope more Mums will consider in the future.
Mama Pack never has and never will sell your details on to other companies.
The packs are usually available from the different suppliers for a small charge so when you take into account the gorgeous bag and that the limited paperwork is mostly money off vouchers, it’s a really good deal. The packs also contain all the essential forms needed to claim funds you are entitled to when having a baby. The content of the packs vary depending on the companies supplying at the time so you could actually order a couple over one pregnancy and have a wider range of products to try (making a note of this in case we have baby number three).
Here’s a close-up example of a Mama Pack…
As you can see, it’s FULL of samples and also includes leaflets on breastfeeding, cloth nappies, child benefit etc etc.
You can also order Goody Bags from Mama Pack for events and exhibitions which I think is a lovely idea.
In the last year, I’ve sent a few packs to friends and family and they really are a lovely, inexpensive gift. If you’ve received a Mama Pack, please let me know what you thought of them and I’d love to know what you thought of the Bounty Packs too.
FYI, I thought the Bounty Packs I received were unimaginative, wasteful (full of useless bits of paper and came in huge one-use plastic bags) and I was so unimpressed that I didn’t bother collecting mine when I had Pooh Bear. I would have loved a Mama Pack instead.
