Why I love Rockin Green ?

Why I love Rockin Green ? www.sewfatty.com

The Summer of 2012 was so awesome, we spent almost three weeks in San Antonio area due to my hubby getting eye surgery. I asked my hubs if he would take me to the Rockin Green HeadQuarters, and of course he said “YES”.  Which was so awesome to be able to check out the detergent company I use for our munchkins diapers. We got to see all the behind the scenes on my favorite soap for Cloth Diapers and Cloth Pads. Marci took us to the warehouse to show us all the merchandise and talk to us a little more on how Rockin Green came about. Kim the CEO of Rockin Green started this company right out of her kitchen and has grown this HUGE company and are now selling worldwide. 

These pictures are from their old warehouse, they have recently moved to a new location. Which I hope, I am able to visit soon. Visiting them, made me feel closer to them in a way – weird I know 🙂 

Why Do I love Rockin Green

Rockin’ Green Laundry Detergent is an eco-friendly detergent that is not only for your cloth diapers but also for your clothes. It contains NO Enzymes, Phosphates, Optical Brighteners, SLS, Parabens. 

All our ingredients are biodegradable – even the packaging is 100% recyclable! The Scents are AMAZING and with that they are not harmful they are made from distillations of natural essential oils – never artificial scents.

When buying Rockin Green, you have sense of pride. To know you are buying from a Family owned business and to be able to contribute to that is amazing. I started my cloth diaper journey with another brand of detergent, which didn’t work out well for us. I finally made the switch to Rockin Green, and have loved everything about it. It washes my sons diapers well, I have no issues. I understand that everyone is different, but for me Rockin Green has been my ‘IT’ diaper detergent for well over 2 years now.

Valenzuela’s way’s on Going Green

Living a green life, is important to our family. We try to teach our kids the importance of preserving the earth. We are not perfect and I’m sure there are other ways to be green, but here are some ways we the Valenzuela’s try to be Green. 

Valenzuela Boys in Cloth Diapers

1. Cloth Diapers: our boys are cloth diapered, we avoid using disposable diapers, they just add more waste to our landfills. With cloth diapers we just keep on reusing them, they are better for our babies, the environment and money saver. 

2. Lights Off : I remember my dad always telling us to “turn off the lights if you’re not using them”. So since forever, I’ve always had that instilled in me. Funny thing is, even when I’m not in my own home, and visiting a friend, my parents home. I still tend to turn off people’s lights. 🙂  So we teach our kids the same, its such an important thing to teach them. 

3. Reusable Napkins : we DO NOT buy paper hand towels. We think of it as a waste of money, and more waste added to our landfills. So we choose to not buy them and we use cloth napkins, our kids are so used to it, that it doesn’t phase them to not have paper towels. 

4. Lead by example : our kids do everything we do. So be a good example to them,  and they will follow.

Mama Kloth Review #clothpads

So, by now you all know I’m a Cloth Pad user. I cant even begin to tell you, how awesome it’s been to use cloth. It’s so different from disposables in so many ways, good ways that is. Every woman should totally try switching over to cloth pads or a cup. 

Mama Kloth creates functional and modern cloth pads in a variety of pad lengths and absorbencies, from pantyliners to postpartum. A lot of natural fibers are used in the making of Mama Kloth pads, including bamboo, wool and organic cotton. Liners come in a variety of sizes from 6″ to 8″. Everything is handmade with love.

Mama Kloth - Cloth Pad Review @ SewFatty

Sizes Available:  7″|8″|9″|11″|13″

Light Liners: Pantyliner| Thongliners

Mama Kloth Facts:

Topped: 100% cotton, bamboo/organic cotton fleece

Backing (waterproof layer): water resistant fleece 

Watch the video on ‘how the water resistant fleece works’ 

Secure: Poly Resin applied with my heavy duty Kam Snap press.

Extra: Each pad has been quilted and topstitched with special decorative stitching.

 Absorbency : They are liner, so keep in mind they are not absorbent enough for your regular flow these are really meant for discharge, incontinence, or to use with a cup for extra coverage.

Workmanship : Mama Kloth are nicely sewn. Nicole pays attention to detail. The workmanship of her pads are fabulous from the placement of her snaps to the decorative stitching. Nicole recently added a tag to her pads which is awesome, great way to organize your pads by brands.

Style|Fit : Mama Kloth pads have a unique flare to them. In my opinion different from any other pads i’ve seen, they look like sharks to me {in a good way} I love to have a variety of shapes. I loved the fit with the exception that this size was a bit too short, other then that, fit is amazing. I have worn them with leggings and you can’t even notice them, which is a huge plus 🙂  

Not to mention Nicole  is always adding new fabric choices to her shop she has modern, and whimsical fabric choices. Picking fabric will be the hardest thing you have to do.

Overall: I absolutely love my Mama Kloth pads. They are thin, breathable, beautiful. What is not to love about them? Be sure to check Nicole’s shop on Etsy. She also sells pad wrappers, key fob, super cute sleeping masks. I have recently started my cycle again, so I will be adding more pads and liners to my stash.  

Care Instructions :

{Mama Kloth Recommendation} Rinse after use. Store in a bucket of cold water. Wash in cold water along with your other laundry or save for separate wash. Lay flat to dry or dry on low. The bamboo core is very absorbant so you may find just laying them flat to dry overnight works best as they may still be damp when your other laundry is dry.
