Welcome to my my blog! 

Here you can read news about EcoBrats in Ireland and about my personal (and continuing) journey in setting up this business. Originally I had also intended to post information and advice relating to ethical living and a number of green parenting issues but I have subsequently decided to set up a website dedicated to this purposes - more information coming soon!

Green parenting is not something to be practiced by an elite few with money to burn but an economic, practical solution to increasing prices, dwindling natural reserves and a polluted environment.

I believe firmly that we should give our children the best start in life possible and here at EcoBrats we strive to provide some of the tools required to do this.

I am available to give real nappy demonstrations and talk on a range of topics, in the Limerick area. If you would like to book a demonstration/talk, please don't hesitate to email or alternatively call on 061 748498.

5 Minutes of Fame on Ireland AM!

Thanks to a very friendly producer on the Ireland AM breakfast show on TV3, I was able to get a 5 minute slot last Friday, talking about going green and saving money.

Given that I only had 5 minutes to speak and the fact that I needed a range of products to show, I decided to go for the real nappies (and a couple of alternatives to conventional washing power) over eco cleaning products and making your own cosmetics/baby ointments - saving these for another show! :-)

The staff at the studio were really friendly and I was enthused by the fact they were all asking me questions about the products before [and after] we went on air.

I got a great response from the segment, with more people looking at the website in one day than I had, had in the last 2 months combined! A few sales were generated and some really valuable enquires. It's also great to see that other people are starting to talk about EcoBrats on the internet, not just me.

All in all a great experience and definitely worth the trouble of sending the initial email.

Hey Clare! Congrats on the radio slot! Might take my chances myself one day soon if I've any trouble getting picked up by a publisher:)

Just want to let you know that your "5 minutes of fame" on Ireland AM was what inspired me to be more eco-friendly. I'm 3 weeks away from bringing a new baby into this world and have already bought 18 reusable nappies, 8 wraps, eco wash balls and dryer balls, and reusable baby wipes. I will also be breastfeeding so here's hoping that all the money I save will go towards the child's future and not the Pampers or Huggies corporations ;-)
