-CLOSED- EcoMom - Smartypants Gummy Vitamin Review & Gift Certificate Giveaway!


 EcoMom was founded to address the connection between the health of our environment & the health of our children, EcoMom is committed to making eco-conscious living easy, affordable, & rewarding with education, support, tools & products.

I LOVE shopping at EcoMom! EcoMom has so many wonderful products that are safe for your family and home. They have products that make being eco-friendly simple and fun and on top of that, they are always adding new products to the great selection they already offer. 

One of their awesome offering is the EcoPass. The EcoPass is a simple way to save on every purchase you make from EcoMom. You buy a $99 annual membership which gives you the following benefits:
  • Free Shipping on every order. This is one of my favorite features! I love the idea of not having to worry about the size of your order. Whatever you order, however much you spend, be it $1 or $100, you get free shipping.
  • 15% savings on every product EcoMom sells. A discount on top of free shipping! How awesome is that! No hunting for coupon codes, you just get to automatically save money on the products you're shopping for.
  • Advance looks at new products.You get to help EcoMom decide which products they will be offering in the future. Your voice will be heard and represented.
  • Exclusive offers and promotions. You get the opportunity to buy products from the Daily Deal and on select new products before anyone else.
At $99, the EcoPass pays for itself in as few as 4 orders and costs about $8.25 a month. So, if you are planning on doing a bit of shopping from EcoMom and especially with Christmas right around the corner, wouldn't it be nice to check some of those friends and family gifts off your list, save on your total purchase and have it delivered to your door with free shipping included! The EcoPass could be the perfect gift for yourself to help you save money on shipping and on your future purchases.

Did you notice that I mentioned that EcoMom is continually offering new products? Well, one of their newest products are the Smartypants Gummy Vitamins
 These gummy goodies are a daily all-in-one multivitamin that also pack a punch of  beneficial Omega 3's and Vitamin D. They smell good, look cute, and taste good too! These sparkly little good-for-you-gumdrops have an outer coating of organic cane sugar (don't worry, they won't send your kiddos on a sugar high with only 5g of organic cane sugar per serving, which is 80% LESS sugar than in a glass of unsweetened apple juice). When I first tried them, I immediately started singing (to myself) the song from Mary Poppins... "Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, In a most delightful way..."  Because, after you have one, you want another and another and another... They are quite addicting (and good for you to boot)!

Well, Mary Poppins aside, obviously little man is not quite old enough to be taking Smartypants Gummy Vitamins, but hubby and I are! Smartypants Gummies do have an adult dose (4) as well as the kiddo dose (2) and hubby and I have been taking our vitamins every day since we got our Smartypants Gummies. I love that they are made here in the good ol' U.S. of A. They're actually made right here in California - even closer to home! SmartyPants are made with only natural colors and flavors and no High Fructose Corn Syrup! They are also gluten- and casein-free. They never use any fake or artificial flavors, sweeteners, or dyes that are bad for your kids!  Their Omega 3 DHA and EPA fish oil comes from eco-friendly sustainable small fish sources. No unsustainable tuna or contaminated fish!

I love that I have found a vitamin that not only has all of the daily essentials that growing little kiddos need, but important extras like Omega 3 DHA and EPA for developing young brains. I love that they are naturally derived, have organic ingredients and are free from fake fillers. The only thing I wish was that the Omega 3's were fish free. Not that I am a vegetarian, but I know people who are who would not be able to give these vitamins to their vegetarian children. But otherwise, I think that Smartypants Gummy Vitamins are great, tasty, quality vitamins. Little man will be a lucky little boy when he is old enough to take his vitamins the Smartypants way! This mommy approves!

Would you like to buy a bottle of Smartypants Gummy Vitamins for your little ones to try? Or is there something else on the EcoMom site that has caught your eye? Well, it's your lucky day, because EcoMom has generously offered a 15% discount to my readers to use on your first order at EcoMom - just use code SBBL636 at checkout for 15% off your order! (This discount code is good until November 30, 2010)
