Sustainababy is the Innovation category winner in the 2012 Advantage SA Regional Awards Far North Region.
The Advantage SA Regional Awards are held annually to celebrate and showcase the achievements of individuals, groups and organisations that have made significant contributions to regional South Australia.
The awards aim to:
- Recognise people, enterprises and initiatives that have made a significant contribution to their region and the State over a twelve month period
- Provide a benchmark for excellence within regional South Australia
- Publicly recognise and reward excellence
- Promote annual celebrations for regional South Australia and offer networking opportunities for nominees/entrants.
Despite being a finalist in several local and national awards since our inception in 2010, this is the first award Sustainababy has won. It is lovely to be recognised for the efforts we have made to help parents in South Australia and beyond live more sustainably. We'd like to thank our families, suppliers and loyal customer base for their ongoing support of our business.

In February 2012 many of our followers submitted their best eco parenting or green living tip for their chance to WIN a $200 Sustainababy gift voucher. Tips were published daily on our Facebook page and we kept a tally of likes, comments and shares to determine the most popular tip and winner.
Many innovative tips were submitted and we'd like to thank all who entered or commented on the tips for sharing their ideas with our environmentally-conscious community.
We are proud to announce Sharyn Williams as the winner with this tip:
"Use what you have for art/craft stuff for children and recycle where possible, i.e. keep any old mail/envelopes for drawing on; cut up old clothes/bras and use the material, buttons, zippers for craft; if you do want to buy "cheap craft" items where possible pull apart and reuse once craft item is no longer needed; use everyday items such as toilet paper rolls, egg cartons; make own play dough; use painted butchers paper for wrapping up presents etc."
Congratulations Sharyn! We'll be in contact shortly with your voucher details.
