There are many types of cheap imported cloth diapers and other natural parenting products out there (and other products) – so why choose to buy something made here, especially if you may be on a tight budget?
Although you may pay more a little more when you buy from a local Canadian or American manufacturer, what you pay for is the real cost of making that product in a place where workers with families like yours get paid real wages. Where you can be sure there’s no forced labor or child labor in most terrible conditions.
Canadian & local manufacturing creates jobs and prosperity – right where you and your family live! And in some cases the money you spend helps a parent feed their family just like your’s or be able to work at home with their family. Every day, we are hearing more and more about factories closing here in Canada and hundreds of men and women losing their jobs and desperate to find another.
From July 1st to July 4th 2013, dozens of Canadian made products will be on sale including all of the following brands of Canadian Made Products.
Healing Hazel handcrafts their line of hazelwood necklaces in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. Hazelwood necklaces provide natural pain relief to children and adults by naturally normalizing acid levels.
The Laundry Tarts:
Jessy and her team from The Laundry Tarts manufacture awesome laundry detergent and other products in Richmond Hill, Ontario. Jessy has said many times that the ingredients they use including their soap base come from roughly a 100 mile radius.
Jessie Doyle Hubberman is the owner of The Laundry Tarts which produces a great natural detergent and many other great laundry products.
Bummis is one of the oldest companies that we deal with here at Nature Bumz, this week they celebrated 25 years of Business. Bummis tries to source everything they can locally including the material for their diaper covers, swim diapers and more.
And yet another factory worker from Bummis.
Here’s a photo of a Bummis employee Bernard (a cutter) working on their new Sun Caps.
Bernard is apparently one of the most organized people they know and he loves what he does!
AppleCheeks produces their very popular brand of cloth diapers in Montreal, Quebec. Most of the materials being used to produce their brand of cloth diapers and other products are made in Canada or the United States.

We recently, also started to carry their line of baby shampoo and body wash which are made from ingredients sourced in Canada and the United States.
Mother Earth Natural Products
Mother Earth Natural Products is a Canadian company that uses organically grown and wildcrafted herbs from their own property on Vancouver Island. Our favourite product produced by Mother Earth is the Motherearth Belly Blossom which I used on two of my three pregnancies.
Buncha Farmers is a Canadian company that sells awesome natural stain removing products and soaps. In 2006, Buncha Farmers started wtih a group of farmers and a few local artisans from the Greater Toronto Area. In Stouffville this group opened up their first store and eventually closed it because they couldn’t work together. Iggy Natoli, and Corey Besser continued working on the business and producing natural products.
In January, we introduced the Buncha Farmers Stain Remover Stick and the response has been phenomenal.
We want to hear from YOU… WHY would you buy local?
