It’s time to give our Earth a big bear hug!

April 22 is an annual reminder that we all need to do our part to protect our planet.

And for parents, a great place to start is by choosing earth-friendly products for our kids.

From plant-based teethers to PVC-free vegan diaper bags and toys that teach our kids about renewable energy, we’ve found a bunch of unique items that can make a world of difference.

Are you ready to be eco-conscious all 365 days of the year?

Check out our round-up of naturally awesome products below:

DRINK & BE HAPPY
Cheers to safe sipping! Klean Kanteen‘s 12 oz. bottle ($14.99) is made from 100 percent recyclable, high-quality, food-grade stainless steel, and no special linings are required like some other brands.

The easy-to-hold container is BPA-free and promises not to leach chemicals, toxins, or metallic flavors into your little one’s water or juice. Bonus: the large-mouth makes cleaning a breeze.
