Momtrepreneur is the latest buzzword defining a growing minority of talented women who’ve left the traditional workplace to have families and simultaneously start successful home-based businesses. Luckily for us many of them are using their entrepreneurial powers for good by starting eco-friendly businesses.
Momtrepreneur Kira Solomon founded Baby LaRue, her eco-conscious baby boutique, after leaving a lucrative career in the fashion industry. With the birth of her baby daughter, Rowan (such a cute name by the way), fueling her passion for green products, Kira’s focus turned towards healthy and safe alternatives to otherwise unhealthy products.
Baby LaRue’s growing inventory includes bpa-free and phthalate-free baby bottles (Green to Grow) and organic and paraben-free baby wash and lotions (Little Twig) along with Kira’s own line of hand drawn silk screened 100% GOTS certified organic cotton onesies.
Kira has a great eye for unique and adorable items and she is committed to selling only organic, recycled, handmade, fair-trade or locally made creations like these handmade monsta’s made from recycled fabric and organic cotton. For you busy moms who want stylish and responsible alternatives for your babies, Baby LaRue is a great place to get started!
