Win a Sustainable Nursery from Kalon Studios and Seventh Generation!

Author: Seventh Generation

Would you like to furnish your baby's new nursery with sustainable furniture from Kalon Studios and stock up with a year's supply of Free&Clear Diapers, Wipes and Laundry Detergent?

We're truly delighted to offer the opportunity to our readers, especially since Kalon Studios is easily one of the most innovative design companies in the world. The nursery chosen for this special sweepstakes features 100% domestic maple, and like all Kalon Studios furniture, is designed to last and grow with your child.

We had a chance to talk with designer/owners Michaele Simmering and her husband, Johann Pauwen, about Kalon (pronounced like "talon" with a k) Studios. What we found was a company as committed to sustainability as we are.

Michaele says Kalon Studios was created in 2007 when she was pregnant with her first daughter, "After years of working freelance for others, we decided that we'd like to try working together so we could both be a part of life at home with our child." She points out that every piece they designed came from a need in their own lives, "We asked, 'Is this something we'd want for ourselves?'"

She says, "We think intensely before we buy anything, considering the lifespan of the piece in our own home, the materials, where they came from, etc. No matter how much language we put out there, I don't think we scratch the surface of how truly considered our products are from the ground up. We source everything as close to home as we can, as sustainably as we can and as high quality as we can. We use raw materials that are renewable, biodegradable, and non-toxic. We even finish our woods with an oil we developed that is non-toxic and food safe. And we truly believe in using local manufacturing to help revitalize and sustain craftsmanship in the states."

Johann and Michaele see sustainability as more just the materials and processes they use. As Johann explains, "Furniture is often a thoughtless purchase to fill an immediate need, so cheap you don't need to think about it. Sustainability comes through managing and caring for a piece of furniture rather than trashing a poorly made, 'quick-fix'. Buy something you love, need and will care for as a result."

If you're the fortunate person to win our Sustainable Nursery, you'll have the chance to own, care for and enjoy a suite of Kalon Studios nursery furniture for yourself. Enter now.

I just found out that I'm due Dec 29th, 2 days shy of my first child's 5th birthday. I love that these products are crafted without the harsh chemicals and also have Long lasting Craftmanship. With this baby I'm going to try to be and use as many natural resources as I can, and this set of prizes would fit in perfect with my goals!!!

I am so impressed with this nursery and all the effort and thought that goes into each piece. We have recently moved back to the States and had to leave everything behind. We have a daughter that is 1 and another on the way. I currently need 2 cribs and much much more. These pieces would be in really good hands! I love everything organic and sustainable... We just can always afford them. Thanks for opening this opportunity!

My partner and I are fanatical about organic living, and we have a baby on the way in October! I'm not too keen on buying a crib from Target or any such place because of the formaldehyde/other chemicals used in the production of big box store furniture. This is a dream giveaway for us! Thank you so much!

Having learned that we're expecting has sent me on a mission to scour the inter webs for the safest, healthiest, most sustainable products for our little one. It's incredible and terrifying how many innovative and highly marketed products end up posing great risks; new materials are often toxic and untested. The furniture design and production by Kalon Studio is terrific; combining modern esthetic with a classic, trusted approach. May the baber & mom that need it most win! Kudos on this special contest :) xox

I tried to enter the contest just using my e-mail address as I am not on Pinterest but it seems to only take Pinterest entries. Also, the Official Rules state that the prize drawing will take place on either April 20 or 21st (both are already past), although on one line of the rules it states the sweeps goes until early May.

as a first time grandma to be. I am very concerned about the toxins that are around us everyday. From the foods we eat, to the furniture we live in, thanks to Kalon Studios for making the babies room more safe!

Baby Gunn (we don't know if we have a boy or a girl!) arrives in a week!! Would love to have an Earth Day baby!! My husband is in solar and I have my graduate degree in environmental education, we have spread the green word and love with every step of our pregnancy. We love educating ppl about how much their impact makes and how much hey can help by researching their purchases and buying wisely. We sure hope we win this gorgeous nursery!! We haven't bought a crib or nursery set yet because I'm still researching the most sustainable options. Everything we have purchased is green. Cloth diapers, non toxic bassinet, washable organic wipes and organic linens. Thank you for all your green hard work and education! We love having these products available at our local stores! :):)

Wow, what an opportunity to literally start clean. I am having my fourth child. I used your diapers on both of my children. the first was out of opinion, and second child was allergic to everything ( born near christmas red and cute as rudolph at birth, she had/has severe eczema) . My whole world kind of changed, I was already earth conscious, but as a mom around this time I feel gifted to know what is truly safest for my Family, and I love and trust 7gen. I was lucky enough to hold a host party once for you.i would love love love to win this!! And I have to mention I could really use this as I gifted all of my stuff third time around, and am working ( local honest market) and home schooling and just loving life. thanks for the chance :)
