Earth Monkeys was started by two mothers because it can be challenging to be more eco-friendly with a baby. So they began with a goal to make more earth-friendly accessories that were affordable for other mothers. All of the Earth Monkeys accessories are made from 100% RPET (recycled plastic bottles) and are water resistant and machine washable! They offer three products: Bibs, Paci-Packs, and Porta-Pads. You can also purchase the products in a full set of all three products or a baby shower gift set. The baby shower gift set includes all three products wrapped and ready to go!
I had the opportunity to try the full set of Earth Monkey accessories in the Blue Destroyer design. I love how tiny each of the accessories are when they are in their bags! They can easily be slipped into your diaper bag, your purse, or even your pocket! Each product comes with an attached storage bag except for the Paci-Pack because it is a bag for your pacifier! You simply unfold the bib or porta-pad and then fold it back up when you’re finished using it! Although I was able to fold them back up on my own, there are some great folding videos available on the Earth Monkeys website.
The Earth Monkey Paci-Pack comes in 6 different designs and can accommodate any pacifier that has a handle of some sort. It can hold up to 2 pacifiers and comes with an aluminum carabiner that you can use to attach to your purse, your diaper bag, or you can even attach your keys to it. Running out to the store real quick? Hook it to your keys and you’ll be sure to have a pacifier. If your house is anything like mine, having a pacifier on hand is essential!
The Earth Monkeys Destroyer bib starts out small in its package but unfolds to be a generously sized bib! It is lightweight and water resistant and the storage bag includes an aluminum carabiner which allows it to be easily attached anywhere you need it! Folding it back up was fairly easy for me, partially because I followed the creases left from it being folded up but once I’d folded it a few times, it was quick and easy!
I like being able to toss this into the diaper bag and have a back up bib. I rarely remember to put a plastic bib in the diaper bag when we’re going out somewhere that might involve W eating, so this is a great alternative!
I have never seen a changing pad that saves as much space as the Earth Monkeys Destroyer Porta-Pad! It starts out extremely small and extremely lightweight in its bag and unfolds to be a decent sized changing pad. The one drawback is that it is not padded so changing on a hard surface wouldn’t be that comfortable for baby. But it would be great as a back up in case of emergencies. I like knowing it’s in my diaper bag just in case!
If you’re looking for these basic baby gear accessories and need them to be space-saving and lightweight, I highly recommend that you try the Earth Monkeys line! I love that they are better for the environment and that I can conveniently toss them in the washing machine when they are dirty!
You can purchase all of the Earth Monkeys products on their website. The full set is available for $26.97 or you can purchase the line individually. Paci-Packs are $8.99, bibs are $9.99, and Porta-Pads are $10.99. You save $3 if you purchase the full set and you can get a matching set which I love!
