Round-up: Cool Earth-Friendly Products for the Whole Family
Ready to go green?
With Earth Day coming up this weekend, it’s all about doing your part for the planet.
So to help you and your mini tree huggers celebrate the big day (and beyond!), we’ve rounded up some of the coolest eco-friendly clothes, toys and gear.
And what better to set things off than outdoors with a picnic at the park?
Perfect for storing snacks and accessories for the whole gang, Envirosax‘s Babushka Tote ($9) is lightweight, portable and waterproof.
And thanks to its reinforced seams, it holds as much as two plastic bags combined.
As if their reusable diapers weren’t stylish enough (Alyson Hannigan is a big fan!), gDiapers has debuted a limited-edition gBloom Dress ($25) which you can coordinate — or mix and match — with their collection of gPants ($20).
Let their mini minds think outside the box with P’Kolino‘s Multi-Solution Shape Puzzle ($20).
Each set comes with interchangeable pieces so the puzzle-solving possibilities are endless!
