12 Fun (and Eco-Friendly!) Treats to Celebrate Earth Day
It’s easy being green!
Whether it’s playing outside or exploring the great outdoors, we’re all about embracing Mother Nature all throughout the year.
But in honor of Wednesday’s Earth Day, we’re spotlighting fun, eco-friendly treats and toys that you and your tiny treehugger will totally love.
From all natural cleaning products and organic jumpers to wooden toys and vegan kicks, check out our global-concious gift ideas below!
You might not be handing over the real car keys just quite yet, but you can feel confident letting your little one play pretend (or gnaw on!) Romp’s Organic Key Teether ($24).
Switch out all those harsh chemicals for a much more softer (and yummy smelling!) stash of goodies from Babyganics. The Baby Safe World Essentials Gift Set comes stocked with everything from shampoo and lotion to dish soap and wipes.
Sure, they’re great for pampering your baby, but we won’t tell if you borrow one of Lulujo’s Organic Cotton Facecloths ($10) for a quick mommy facial.
Plae’s Sam Fisherman sandals ($50) are an instant shoe-in for your little one’s feet because they’re made to be completely breathable for tiny toes, flexible for on-the-go tots and easy to throw in the wash after a long day of play.
Best of all? They’re completely vegan.

Equal parts cozy, cuddly and cute, Soft Baby’s Boat Playsuit ($45) is crafted from the softest organic cotton.
A rocket ship? A skyscraper? Your builder-to-be’s imagination will hit an all-time high with YOXO’s Megabuilder ($60), which is made in the USA from recyclable materials.

What better way to enjoy Earth Day than with a picnic? Bring along JJ Rabbit’s organic cotton Warm Set dryBIB ($20) to keep your kiddie’s cute ensemble clean. Bonus: They’re waterproof!

Keeping track of your tot’s gear can be tough. But using a permanent marker isn’t always the best option, either. Our suggestion: Mabel’s Labels Baby Combo Kit ($27), which includes sticky labels, tags and shoe labels.

After a long day of practicing pliés in the park, your tiny dancer will happily cuddle up with Apple Park’s 100 percent organic cotton plush Ballerina Mouse ($35).
No one really needs a reason to plan a party, but EchoAge is still giving you not one, but two! Kids can choose from a wide range of invites and then ask guests to pitch in on a few presents or donate to a charity of their choice.
