We love the “new again” trend of packing school lunches in reusable containers–it is a little way even small children can push back against a society addicted to disposables. Plus, many of the containers like the ones at Kids Konserve are so eco-chic!
“Waste not, want not,” mom always said. So, mom entrepreneur Christina started Citizen Pip and created a complete, “muck-free”, reusable lunch system.
This stylish Soup to Nuts Kit includes everything you need to pack a meal, from the non-squishable sandwich-sized container, to the insulated soup jar. You’ll also find utensils, cloth napkins, snack-sized containers, and a water bottle. And it is all certified to be lead-free, phthalate-free and BPA-free by a CPSIA-accredited lab.
My stretch marks are badges of honor…but I’m not the type to brag. I found an uplifting site, The Shape of a Mother, which encourages us to celebrate our amazing bodies that have nurtured new life. While I agree with embracing the changes motherhood has brought, it is also healthy (for mind and body) to […]

But some of my idealism remains and I’m excited to see a new generation taking up the effort to reduce waste, reuse, and recycle–especially when it is […]
Imagine a toy that is reusable, suitable for toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged children, rolls up for storage, and inspires creativity without any mess–and you’ll have Aquadoodle. My daughter will draw all day long, but she always wants a clean page. We save a few of her paintings, but mainly she just enjoys doodling. Since she […]
Toddlers have remarkable imaginations. Mine will stick two blocks together and proudly proclaim it a “kitty cat…with shoes!” So, we favor open-ended toys that allow her to explore her own creativity. If you are looking for something a cleaner and less pointy than two sticks and some rocks, then building blocks are a classic for […]
My family uses eco-friendly and chic stainless steel water bottles to reduce landfill and our exposure to the chemicals in plastics.
