April 6th-Bobux Eco-Friendly Shoe Giveaway



Bobux USA makes some of the cutest soft soled baby shoes I have ever seen. Dexter was lucky enough to get a pair of them and he loves wearing them. I like them because he can't take them off but they are also soft-soled so I don't have to worry about hurting his feet.

Bobux make their shoes using Eco-Leather. Bobux Eco-Leather is Safe for Babies and the Environment

As we all know some babies love to suck and put just about everything in to their mouths.

Bobux Eco-leatherTM was developed to produce an exceptionally soft nappa that would be totally safe for babies to put in their mouth, be gentle on baby's delicate newborn skin and friendly on the environment.

Bobux International Ltd. was not happy with the traditional methods used to tan leather utilizing heavy metals, so the Company directed its efforts on research and development in partnership with a local tanner to produce an environmentally friendly, biodegradable leather that would have strong appeal to its New Zealand consumers, as well as to its environmentally aware "green" consumers in Europe and North America.

As far as the Company is aware, it is the only manufacturer of soft soled leather shoes for babies and toddlers that meets the following environmental and International safety standards.

British and European Safety Standard BS 5665 : EN71 Part 3 (Testing by LASRA NA)
Japanese Industrial Safety Standard JIS/L1041 (Testing by LASRA NZ)
German TUV accreditation for safety of banned materials and substances used in tanning of leather.(Testing by TUV Germany)
Criteria for Ecological leather:

Chrome(VI) free leather.
No Azo dyes - banned under EU directive 2002/61EC.
No presence of heavy metals (Tested to DIN EN ISO 105-E04)
All tanning agents and dye colors are water based
International test confirm no presence of any banned substances.
All testing has been carried out independently by accredited testing authorities using internationally recognized environmental standards.
The waste water from our tanning process is treated by in-house waste water treatment plant so as to achieve a reduction of the COD/BOD* content of over 98.75%. All wast treatment far exceeds the Ecological leather production requirements and is audited regularly by regulatory authority, Environmental Waikato, New Zealand.
Bobux Eco-leatherTM is bio-degradable and is therefore safe for land fills.

Bobux Eco-leatherTM demonstrates the Company's commitment to creating greener products and a better environment that meets demanding international standards.






Thank you to the eco-conscious (and generous) people over at Bobux for offering one reader the chance to win their own pair of Bobux Original Soft-soled shoes.

I just love the boys Navy Sport shoes. Very similar to the orange ones you show on the blog. These soft soled shoes really are fantastic. I just love them but my 15 month old has out grown the sizes usually carried in stores. I'm so glad you shared this company as their sizes go well into preschool! Love it!
Thanks for the entry!!

I love the Bobux Mocha Beige Sport shoes. So cute!! That's awesome the sizes run so big. My 3 year old is probably out of luck (poor girl got mama's big feet). My 19 month old son would rock these though. :)

Even though I love all of them, I think I'd pick the Beige Shamrock shoes. We celebrate our Irish heritage, and with another little leprachaun on the way, either the new baby or my 14 month old son would look too cute in the shamrock shoes! andreaokeefe@gmail.com

I just love the Bobux Slink Skin Natural which look like the comfiest, warmest little slippers for baby feet ever. I also really like the Chocolate Giraffes, I know you said one favourite but it was too hard.
