We try to be good about recycling in my home- my eldest even commissioned himself captain of recycling around the house. That’s right, he gets to be in charge (with mom’s supervision). He’s pretty good at it, and likes learning how he can recycle and what can be recycled. It keeps us on our toes, and […]
How are you celebrating Earth Day with your family?
Young children are natural eco-warriors. They love the outdoors and creatures great and small. My kids are always dragging me outside to play and explore.
And I love that environmentally-friendly options are usually money-saving options, too. When we reduce, reuse, and recycle, we save both kinds of green.
Here are a few ideas for celebrating Earth Day with your kiddos…
Pick up 10-40% discounts on some of your favorite eco-friendly, natural parenting gear.
The sale includes popular cloth diaper brands like Rump-a-rooz and Fuzzi Bunz, reusable stainless steel water bottles by Safe Sippy and Klean Kanteen, and more!
In honor of Earth Day, we are making recycled crafts this month.

Just find one way each and every day to make a small difference–even little actions add up!
Many responsible toy retailers are now highlighting products made from eco-friendly materials. Consider buying locally when possible–saving the fuel required for shipping is even better than buying organic, another smart move. And while you are showing your respect for the planet, don’t forget its people: when you purchase items from around the world, look for fair trade products.
We hope you’ll enjoy our Earth Day Guide…
With the Eco Town from Plan Toys, your kids will find a new earth-friendly surprise around every corner.
We played with a set that includes a play mat with plenty of green set, an eco home, train station, vehicle charging station, and more–and all of these toys teach about sustainable development. Clean energy is spotlighted in this earth-friendly town.
For Mother’s Day, how about an eco-chic gift that also helps women in impoverished areas avoid or overcome slavery?
The Emancipation Network (TEN) is an international organization dedicated to fighting human trafficking and modern day slavery. Through Made by Survivors, TEN provides survivers of slavery and people at risk of being trafficked into slavery with an opportunity for a sustainable income, education and help reintegrating into society.
They had me at saving women from slavery…
Children are natural ecologists. They love to play outside and appreciate the joys of discovering rocks, plants, and animals along the way.
What they need a little help with is conservation–learning to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Shutting off the lights, taking shorter showers, and opening a window instead of turning on the air conditioning are all ways that even the littlest person can make a difference.
The Plan Toys Green Dollhouse aims to introduce children to sustainable living through a concept dollhouse. Every aspect of the Green Dollhouse helps children learn how people can co-exist with their environment in a more eco-friendly way…
