ONTARIO, Calif., (July 26, 2011) â€“ Mountain Mama, creator of athletic apparel for expecting women, announces a public relations partnership with Verde PR & Consulting, effective immediately.
Mountain Mama offers an award-winning collection of clothes that make it possible for expecting women to continue to play throughout pregnancy without sacrificing the desire for stylish and high-performing apparel. A combination of innovative designs with technical fabrics yields high-quality apparel that moms can rely on throughout the many prenatal stages, as well as post partum and beyond.
Mountain Mama was founded in 2009 by an outdoor enthusiast who put her passion for play to work and created a clothing line that brings technical apparel to women wanting to stay active during pregnancy. Teresa Delfin, founder and chief executive Mama, created the company as a way to support healthy lifestyles for mamas to be.
â€œWe are proud to partner with such a unique brand,â€ said Kristin Carpenter-Ogden, president of Verde PR. â€œThe heart of Verde has always been to promote companies with a strong focus on healthy lifestyles, so we’re excited to build upon Mountain Mama’s goals, and work with a company who’s core values and ethos echo our own.â€
The partnership with Verde PR is a positive one for Mountain Mama as it sets a strong foundation of brand communications. The like-minded companies will grow the Mountain Mama’s unique proposition by building awareness and setting key differentiators through both traditional and social platforms in the outdoor, lifestyle, fitness and parenting markets.
â€œWe couldn’t be happier about connecting with the Verde family,â€ expresses Delfin. â€œI’m excited to work with Verde to further build and realize our vision for the future of Mountain Mama.â€
Verde PR is also one of the only public relations firms with the knowledge and capabilities to build on corporate social responsibility. This makes the connection with Mountain Mama that much more valuable. Taking their business responsibilities to another level, all of Mountain Mama’s products are designed, produced and manufactured in the San Gabriel Mountains of sunny southern California. Because the development processes takes place within 20 miles of the company’s headquarters, their carbon footprint remains small.
