EcoBuns new ownership {and a special discount for you!}

EcoBuns, a fantastic cloth diaper and natural baby care store in Holland, MI, just changed ownership and I had the pleasure of chatting with one of them. Here’s what Marissa had to say about EcoBuns:

What excites you about owning a company dedicated to cloth diapers?

Marissa: When I first started cloth diapering I was so confused about it all. It was Kellie, the original owner of EcoBuns, who sat down with me for over an hour and explained all the ins and outs of cloth diapering. If it weren’t for her and having a local store around to give me guidance when I first started, I probably wouldn’t have cloth diapered at all. I love that I can now be that person for other moms!

What customer services are you really passionate about?

Marissa: I am really excited to offer local natural parenting resources to the Holland Area such as babywearing classes, cloth diaper classes, natural birth option classes and more. EcoBuns is really focused on being not only a retail store, but also a resource center for all aspects of natural parenting. We are also now offering on-site diaper repair as well as snap conversions which are all done by one of the new owners.

What can people expect from the new ownership?

Marissa: A commitment to keeping our store fully stocked with the products that our customers love. Customers can expect useful parenting products and essential educational resources all in one place, along with exceptional customer service.

Will there always be knowledgeable staff available to help customers?

Marissa: YES! There are three new owners of EcoBuns: myself, my sister Meghan and our mom Vicki. Meghan and I both currently cloth diaper our kids. Vicki used cloth diapers on us in the 80’s with prefolds, pins and plastic pants, and she now uses the newer, easier version of cloth diapers on her grandkids. We can all help you with any of questions.

You mentioned classes for cloth diapers, what topics do you cover?

Marissa: We hold Buns Bootcamp classes once a month. It’s an hour-long class that covers topics such as reasons to use cloth diapers, styles and options of cloth, washing instructions, do’s and do not’s of cloth, what you can expect from us as your cloth diaper resource and finally, how we can help you get your stash started at little to no cost! You can find all of our current classes and events on our website.

Where are you located, and what are your current hours?

Marissa: EcoBuns is in The Holland Town Center (formally known as the Outlet Mall). We are between Carter’s and Gap Outlet, facing Dutch Village. (super easy to get to!) And we are open Tuesday to Saturday, 10:00am to 8:00pm. Please stop in and check out all that we have to offer!

As a special discount to our GRNL readers, EcoBuns is offering $5.00 off any purchase of $30 or more! Just print out the coupon below and bring it in to the store by the end of March.
