An award for our environment

What a busy few weeks it has been!
Initially, I was so chuffed to hear that Babyjo had been nominated for an Award at the upcoming Connect2Mums AusMumpreneur Awards to be held in Brisbane on the 31st July.

I was then even more excited to find that we are now a finalist (with 4 others) in the category of "Best Eco Friendly Business". The other finalists are just amazing, each with their own fantastic business that has a strong focus on being eco friendly and environmentally responsible/aware. You can read more about them here at Connect2Mums.
I love the fact that there is a business award for this category, and regardless of the outcome, our world is still better off for the changes that we are all striving to make - Every bit counts!

So.......I have my plane tickets ready (get me out of this chilly Melbourne weather!) and a lovely "frock" ready for the evening, and I am so looking forward to meeting so many fabulous business owners and amazingly talented "Mumpreneurs".

The AusMumpreneur Awards celebrate and recognize those achieving success in the industry, in areas such as business, product development, services and innovation in both online and bricks and mortar businesses from around Australia.

In conjunction with a super 3 day conference, the AusMumpreneur Awards take place at a glamourous Awards dinner at Rydges, Southbank, Brisbane on Saturday 31 July. These awards are the only events of their kind in Australia and will be officially opened by Hon Karen Struthers MP the Minister for Women.

Connect2mums provides a safe and supportive environment for women in online businesses to get together and share information, network and gain support. The site provides members with relevant information and opportunities to interact and socialise with other mums across Australia and New Zealand. Friday night live chats, newsletters, product reviews, real-life events, competitions and articles are just some of the ways women get connected at Connect2mums.

We do things differently around here!

I've been busily working away this weekend - which is a big plus when the weather is as cold as it is! We are so excited to bring a fun new way of shopping to you and your friends and family.

Babies around the world are loving Babyjo Bamboo - so why not share the secret with your friends & family & benefit when sales are made.
Similar to a “Tupperware” party, however carried out online, we are proud to offer Babyjo e-parties to our valued customers and friends.

The rewards are fantastic, and easily achievable - simply share the details with your friends and family, then sit back and relax!
What a fantastic way to add to your existing range of Babyjo (or make a start for a new arrival) and offer your little one the most beautiful, organic clothes & blankets imaginable!
We've kept it as simple as possible, and there is very little for the "party panda" to do - all material and information is supplied - you just need to find the friends to join the party!

** Contact us to confirm your e-party & a start date will be arranged.
** e - party invitation, order code & flier will be sent to you via email

** Sit back and relax while your friends shop with FREE POSTAGE!

e—parties run for 10 days, so your selected friends and family have plenty of time to browse our website and make a selection. Using the unique code to secure free shipping, customers can place their order via our online site at
As the “party panda”, you will receive $20 store credit* upon placing your booking. For every $ spent by your friends & family, you will receive additional store credit to use on your own purchases—SIMPLE!

Below is an indication of store credit received in comparison with sales made throughout the duration of your e-party
