GIVEAWAY! Be A Fun Mum Newsletter

I’m introducing a monthly newsletter here at Be A Fun Mum.  The newsletter will be different, but complimentary to the blog, with post highlights, reviews, giveaways, recipes, inspiration, activities for kids and more!

To celebrate the launch of the newsletter, I asked JJ from Recycled Mats  if she would sponsor a giveaway because I love my recycled mat and want others to enjoy them too. It’s one of those items I wish I knew about at the beginning of my parenting. Our family takes it everywhere: the beach, camping, at home for movie nights and out in the park on lazy Sunday afternoons. It’s the best mat I have ever bought and I’ll tell you why.

What are Recycled Mats

Recycled Mats are made from recycled plastic. There a range of South Pacific and Polynesian designs,  Aboriginal designs and Maori and New Zealand designs. You can read more about the mats here: Recycled Mats — What are we made of? 

Why I love Recycled Mats

I love recycled mats because they are:

  • Easy to carry around — the mats are made of plastic so are superlight
  • Waterproof — spills aren’t a worry
  • Double sided — love that I can flip it over and change the colour
  • Multicultural — supports indigenous designers
  • Easy to clean — plastic can be hosed off with water
  • Big enough for our entire family — I have the medium mat and it fits our entire family comfortably 
  • Environmentally friendly — the mats are made from recycled materials

    […] We love spending time outdoors as a family and our recycled mat is invaluable to us. The mat is brilliant for the indoors but we usually leave it in the car because we use it so much. Our family takes it everywhere: the beach, camping, at home for movie nights, in the backyard and out in the park on lazy Sunday afternoons. It’s made of recycled plastic so is easy to clean. I wrote about other benefits of the mat here: Recycled Mats. […]
