Eco-Friendly Products to Celebrate Earth Day!
Loving and respecting the Earth is something we should do everyday. But on this special Earth Day, let’s take a moment to honor our amazing planet by doing something that’s meaningful to you and the environment.
I’ve been scouring the internet to find some new green products to try. Here are a few Eco-Friendly children’s products that you should know about:
Way Basics make eco-friendly furniture, perfect for a child’s room. They’re simple design solutions that are absolutely elegant. Best of all, they’re amazingly easy to put together! The furniture are sustainably made from zBoard, a tough recycled paper and completely recyclable. Design your own furniture by adding and stacking new pieces. Each cube takes less than 5 minutes to put together — just peel, stick and you’re done!
I’m actually quite surprised how strong the zBoard was, as well as the 3M adhesive that holds the zBoards together. The zBoards feels like wood, but incredibly lightweight! The cubes are just the right size to fit standard storage boxes too. They’re beautiful furniture that’s also earth-friendly. Furniture pieces start at $20. Purchase now.
Note: They also have a new line called ModLife Shelfing, made or recycled plastics.
This is a fun and eco-friendly place to shop for your kids. Wild Dill features organic, fair trade and natural toys, clothes and bedding for little ones. Toys are made from either bamboo or soy fiber or organic cotton, meaning they’re sustainable and amazingly soft. Fair Trade is important as it promotes healthy and safe working conditions.

gDiapers gBloom Dress
Cloth diapering wasn’t too pretty when I was a kid. Nowadays, they’re probably the most stylish diapers around! There are many amazing brands of cloth diapers, but the one that caught my eye was gDiapers’ new gBlooms! Now how can you resist a matching diaper AND dress, not to mention saving the earth while you’re at it? gDiapers are the only earth-friendly diapers that are 100% biodegradable. Their gRefills can be flushed, home composted, or tossed. Which means, they’re good for babies and the planet. Go check out gDiaper’s earth-friendly products.
4Moms Origami Stroller
4Moms makes an exciting and very techy stroller called the Origami, but how is it eco-friendly? There are generators in its rear wheels that charges the stroller while you walk! Not only does the stroller powers itself, it can even charge your cell phone. Jam-packed with so many features like an speedometer, odometer, and temperture, it also encourages to go out an exercise while giving your child some fresh air. For more info, see 4moms.com/origami
