I don’t know about you, but the bulk of my (snail) mail consists of return address labels, bills, and coupons to the local Indian restaurant. During my last two pregnancies, this trio expanded to include formula coupons and sample issues of mainstream parenting magazines (how did they know?!). In other words, nothing all that useful. A relevant surprise or something just for me – especially when pregnant — would have been most welcome. Enter: Supplet. The new Boston-based company has a simple, yet pretty unique mission:
At Supplet we curate the best eco-friendly, healthy, and premium products for moms-to-be and new moms.
Here’s how it works. Supplet sends you a monthly box of goodies relevant to where you are in your pregnancy. But it’s not just your run-of-the-mill, conventional pregnancy products they’re sending – Supplet leverages resources like EWG’s “Skin Deep” database, so you don’t have to worry about yucky ingredients in the body care products. The ingredients in the food products they offer are scrutinized by a panel of wellness experts, and the samples for your home are eco-friendly. The companies and products Supplet includes have been vetted and investigated thoroughly, for strong morals and a commitment to doing right for our bodies and our planet.
The box I sampled was during my first trimester, so it had items relevant to that stage in my pregnancy. It included a yummy (dairy and nut-free) cookie by Bumpbooster made with some superfoods, I was excited to find samples of Simply Soap Berry, which is a natural laundry detergent (I just happen to run out of my usual soap the day before…). It worked beautifully, and I was trilled to read about the company’s dedication to sustainability and safe products. I had some delicious NewTree quinoa chocolate bars. My three year old thoroughly enjoyed them too!
I also tried and enjoyed the Erbaorganics Mommy-to-be Foot and Leg Refresher, made with 87% organic ingredients.
