  3. Introducing REN Clean Skincare

    REN Clean Skincare

    We have made an exciting change to our Mum Bundle.

    Now even better value with the inclusion of REN Clean Skincare.

    REN’s philosophy of Clean Skincare can be summed up in three words: Performance, Purity & Pleasure.

    Performance: REN gives you groundbreaking product formulation, the latest hi-tech actives, rigorous product testing and clinically proven results.

    Purity: REN uses only 100% plant and mineral derived actives and is free from skin-unfriendly synthetic ingredients*.

    Pleasure: With REN you can have the best of both worlds – brilliant products that really work and the comfort of knowing that you’re avoiding the chemical nasties.

    Since its launch in 2000 REN has become a cult favourite amongst beauty editors and consumers in over 50 countries around the world so you can see it was pretty hard for us to go past.

     

  4. Zoe Foster Blake – Testimonial

    Thank you so much for the beautiful, very stylish Bundle bag and the two lovely duffle bags filled with excellent and so-useful gear inside, currently packed into said Bundle bag just for fun, but to be washed (clothes) and prepared in full (big ol nanna knickers added) ASAP.  It is just such a clever idea, and has been executed so well.

    Dynamic founder of TOM Organic Aimee Marks gives some insight into what she considers to be ‘Hospital Bag Essentials’ since recently giving birth to her gorgeous twins.

    She says a “Bundle Bag is such an amazing way to take the stress out of preparing your maternity hospital bag. Apart from being stylish, this company offers options for pairing your duffle bag with an assortment of natural products (bonus: they also have our maternity pads inside!).” Hospital Bag Essentials done!

  6. Organic Tampons & Pads – Why TOM Organic?

    Organic Pads & tampons

    Why the love affair with TOM Organic?  Well they make the best 100% Certified Organic Tampons & Pads on the market.  Why else?  Because they are super absorbent and come in gorgeous practical packaging!  The TOM Organic Maternity Pad also happens to be super soft and luxurious unlike many other brands which resemble stiff oversized surfboards! As far as we’re aware it’s the only one that has nifty little elasticated sides to stope leakage too!  Ta da!

     

    It may surprise you to learn what is really in your everyday tampons and pads.  If you are curious and care about your health then continue reading…

    What’s in your tampon?

    There’s a reason we don’t eat plastic and drink bleach: because they don’t belong inside us. The choice to stock our refigerators with organic food and lather our bodies and faces with organic skincare may have become second nature – but how often do we take the time to read the list of ‘ingredients’ on a box of tampons and pads?

    Almost every feminine hygiene brand sold in Australia (and the world for that matter) is made from a combination of the following ingredients: rayon/viscose, polypropylene, polyester and conventional cotton – and to that list you can add perfume and bleach and if the string of your tampon is coloured then you can also add dye. The list isn’t long, but it is scary, because what that list translates to is: wood pulp, bleach, plastic and pesticides.

    Rayon is used to make clothes, curtains and that wadding inside of zippo lighters.
    Rayon usually makes up the ‘body’ of the tampon and the ‘core’ of the pad, it is a highly absorbant fibre made from wood pulp – the processing required to turn woodchips into a fibre is up to sixteen step long and uses some pretty nasty chemicals – this is also where the bleach comes in.

    Polypropelyne is used to make packaging, carpet and Australian banknotes.
    Polyester is used to make clothing, tents, sleeping bags and sails for boats.
    Polypropelyne and polyester are plastics and are often used to wrap the rayon body of the tampon to give it that ‘silky’ feel. It goes without saying that the world doesn’t need more plastic – and we certainly don’t need it inside of us.

    Conventional Cotton is the most heavily sprayed crop in the world.
    Seven of the most common pesticides used on cotton are “known, probable or likely” to be human carcinogens according to the Environmental Protection Agency in the USA.

    Convential cotton may be used in the body of the tampon or only in the string and it’s often used on the outer layer of pads and liners (the part that comes in contact with your skin). We may think we’re making the right choice by choosing the ‘natural’ option, but conventional cotton is one of the most heavily sprayed crops in the world – which means that pesticides end up in our waterways, the air we breathe and ultimatily in the cotton products we buy.

    Unless the cotton is certified organic there is no guarentee that it is chemical free.

    Everyday we make choices about what we put in and on our bodies and over her lifetime it is estimated that a woman will use up to 12,000 tampons and pads (yes, that many!) – that’s 12,000 opportunities to make a choice that’s better for your body and better for the planet.

    TOM Organic tampons and pads are made from 100% certified organic cotton.

    That’s why we love TOM and provide 2 x packs of TOM Organic Maternity Pads in each of our Mum Bundles.

  8. Hospital Bag Checklist

    Haven’t packed your hospital bag yet? Here is a great Hospital Bag Checklist to make sure you’re ready!

     

    Maternity Bag, Hospital Bag, Labour Bag, Pre-packed Maternity Bag, Pre-packed Hospital Bag, Weekender, Overnight Bag

    You should have everything you need for labour and your stay in hospital packed and ready by 36 weeks or earlier. Often left to last, this can be one of the more daunting tasks prior to the birth.  There are so many little bits and pieces to get and you are often supplied with conflicting Hospital Bag Checklists.  In conjunction with the use of this checklist, it’s a good idea to check with your hospital or health care provider about the specific requirements and length of stay that will apply to you, this way you can pack appropriately.

    We have put together a handy Baby Checklist which includes a Hospital Bag Checklist to alleviate the confusion & mystery which can surround the packing of your Maternity Hospital Bag!  It will ensure you know what to pack, how much to pack and even what size baby clothing to pack.

    Don’t want to pack your bag and would rather someone else did if for you? At Bundle we have you covered for this part of your preparation with our carefully thought out Mum Bundle & Baby Bundles. Not only do we save you time and stress, you’ll also save money whilst getting the best quality products in your hospital bag.  This way you’ll be able to put your feet up and relax knowing your maternity hospital bag is packed and you are ready for the arrival of your baby!

    Note: Items marked with a B, are included in our Bundles.
