‘The Run for One Planet is an ongoing run endeavour focused on “Inspiring Environmental Action, One Step at a Time”.
The Run for One Planet 2008/2009 North America Tour is our kick-off initiative – a carbon neutral year-long run around the continent by two Canadians, Matt Hill and Stephanie Tait, to inspire Environmental Action. Our goal is to run 1 marathon each per day, inspire 1 million new Actions for Earth and raise $1 Million for our Legacy of Action’
Stork Craft employees filled out the ‘Action Challenge’ at work, committing to at least 1 of 10 actions to minimize our carbon footprint. The actions included:
-Eat Local and Organic
-Turn Off Your Car
-Eliminate Plastic Bags
-Use Green Cleaners
-Turn Off the Lights
-Turn Off the Taps
-Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
-Bring Your Own Bottle
-Teach Your Children Well
Personally I agreed to a few of the actions such as ‘Turn Off Your Car’ and ‘Eliminate Plastic Bags’. Altogether Stork Craft is very proud to help the environment and reduce climate change through its employees’ actions. Stork Craft also encourages you and/or your company to also be a part of the ‘Action Challenge’.
You can download the form here: http://www.runforoneplanet.com/downloads/R41P_Steps_Form.pdf and post it on the bulletin board in your lunchroom at work, or bring it home with you and post it on the fridge. Hopefully together we can all help make a difference one small step at a time.
I am pleased to give Stork Craft’s Blog Followers a first glance at the brand new Stork Craft Bunk Beds. These have not hit the store shelves yet, but when they do they are sure to be a major hit for parents who want to purchase a quality bunkable bed at an affordable price. I think most of you agree with me that these are very attractive beds. I can’t wait for them to hit retail stores across North America!

Today Stork Craft hit its own milestone online as it reached 100 people following its blog and 200 people following on Twitter. Although these may seem like relatively modest numbers, Stork Craft is new to the ‘Social Networking’ world and is very proud of these accomplishments!
We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you for taking the time to read about the current events and new products that Stork Craft is launching, and please continue to be with us for our next milestone.
Being in charge of Stork Craft online, I have come across a variety of interesting questions. Although I see unique questions on a daily basis, the one question that comes up time after time is:
“What is included with a Stork Craft Stages Crib?”
This is a very valid question. Stages cribs are a hot-seller for Stork Craft as they provide the customer with outstanding value and longevity out of their baby nursery. There are a variety of Stages Cribs:
2-in-1 Stages Crib (like the Ariel Stages Crib) converts from a crib to a full-size bed.
3-in-1 Stages Crib (like the Aspen Stages Crib) converts from a crib to a day-bed to a full-size bed.
4-in-1 Stages Crib (like the Chelsea Stages Crib) converts from a crib to a toddler bed to a day-bed to a full-size bed.
To answer the question about what is included in the Stages Crib box, Stork Craft Stages Cribs come with everything you need to convert the crib to different stages but do not come with the bed rails or bed frame to convert to a full-size bed. Full-size bed rails must be purchased separately from a bed rail retailer. Full-size bed frames with a double ended attachment can also be purchased from a bed retailer.
Whichever Stork Craft Stages Crib you decide on, you have chosen a crib that will grow with your child through every stage of their childhood.
(Pictures shown above are of the Rochester Stages 3-in-1 Crib shown in crib, day-bed and full-size bed stages)
Sometimes regular pictures just don’t do products any justice. It’s one thing for a customer to read about a crib’s features, or a description about a change table, but to actually see it up close, from a variety of angles and zoomed in is one of a kind. It really helps you not only see but understand the product as well as visualize it in a specific room in your house.
Stork Craft’s new interactive Easy 2 Technology can be seen for Stork Craft products online at Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Sears, Walmart and other fine retailers.
Here are a few examples of Easy 2 Technology:

On behalf of Stork Craft, Ragazzi Fine Furniture, Status and Canwood we would like to thank those from Baby Furniture Plus who came to visit us here at Stork Craft last week. We really enjoyed showing you around our facility and introducing you to some of our new product lines, namely Status and Canwood as well as some new Ragazzi products. We also very much valued and appreciated all of the feedback and suggestions that you gave us.
The BFP Woods Comittee Chairperson, Zara Sawyer, wrote a very promising letter regarding the recent visit to Stork Craft. Some of the key points from her letter include:
-’Ragazzi furniture came out with innovating designs; and I feel they will be a big success at the ABC show too.’
I came to work on Monday morning at Stork Craft a little bit more tired than usual. Sunday nights are supposed to be quiet, relaxing evenings while the weekend is wrapping-up and you prepare for another work week. I spent some time with my family on Sunday night and I was getting ready to leave, I wanted to say goodbye to the two household pets that live with my parents- Ziggy the puppy and Mango the cockatoo. Mango was in her cage at the time and seemed quite playful. Throughout Mango’s 16 year existence she has always had a ‘love-hate’ type of relationship with me. As I put my face up to the cage to say goodbye, something must have triggered some angry feelings inside of her. She latched her beak onto my formerly attractive nose and took a chunk out of the front. I’ll spare you with the rest of the details but I got out of the hospital at 1am after receiving 1 stitch in my nose. Could have been much worse!
The employees at Stork Craft wondered what had happened. I thought of making up an elaborate story but I ended up telling them the truth. Now I just wanted to apologize to all of the Stork Craft people here who have to look at this unsightly nose for the next little while!
