When it comes to raising her 16-month-old son Benjamin in an eco-friendly environment, Kelly Preston isn’t messing around.

From the organic food he eats (on the menu? Fresh spinach, carrot and kale juice, quinoa and scallops!) to his co-sleeper and toys, the new mom is a stickler for finding the most natural, toxin-free options.

“I’m meticulous on checking ingredients,” Preston tells PEOPLE of her never-ending quest for healthy — and yummy! — foods for her family, including Ben’s big sister Ella, 12.

“If they’re organic, I’ll try them! If they’re delicious, I’ll keep buying them!”

Did you know that Legos can be germier than the loo? It’s true! Toys, binkies, car seats and strollers are high up on the list of baby gear that bacteria love. In fact, 65 percent of cold and flu viruses are transmitted through contact with regular household items, where contagious little critters play hide and seek.

We know that keeping your little one’s stuff clean can be a chore, but try throwing some love — BuggyLOVE that is — into the mix. The brand new organic cleaning line will make your tot’s ride look (and smell) luxe.

Getting out kiddie stains (think pen marks, mud smears, food dribbles) is no easy task.

But what if there was an eco-friendly alternative?

Using a blend of botanicals and herbs, Vaska‘s collection of all-natural detergents ($7 – $10) is up for the job.

It also breaks down quickly to non-polluting compounds in both fresh and salt water, which means it’s good for the planet too.

In honor of Earth Day (April 22), we rounded up our fave green cleaners. Check them out below.

The Ionator HOM from Active Ion ($179) cleans using the power of… water!
