6 Ways to Get Your Kids Involved with Helping the Earth this Summer

Summer Tips for Getting Kids Involved in EnvironmentCourtesy Bambooee

Shocked to learn that only 7 percent of the Brazilian rainforest was left intact, mother-of-two Irene Krasniansky decided it was time to lay down the law: no more paper towels.

Prompted by the pledge, her entrepreneurial husband, Noam, set out to develop a product that not only replaced disposable paper towels, but was also composed of a sustainable and renewable resource.

The result: an “un-paper” towel that replaces up to 286 paper-towel rolls.

The couple, inspired by TOMS’ shoe-donation campaign “One for One,” then took their mission one step further by vowing to plant a tree for every roll of Bambooee sold.

To date, their pledge is responsible for over 70,000 new trees being planted. Also nearest to Irene’s heart is teaching future generations how to care for their planet.

When you’re a working mom on the go, it’s hard enough making meals for your kids every night, let alone ones that are nutritious and organic.

That’s why a lot of them — including Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley – are turning to Yummy Spoonfuls, a line of 100 percent USDA certified organic baby food.

“It’s pure, fresh and delicious!” says Mowry-Hardrict, who ordered regularly for her now 2-year-old son, Cree, when he was younger.

“I knew exactly what was in it and most importantly, my son loved it – especially the butternut squash recipe!”

The company’s mini meals, which are made without artificial additives, pesticides or other unwanted extras, are easily accessible to busy moms. You can either buy them online or in your local grocery stores.

What: Dyson 65 Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Who Tried It: Julia Wang, Features Director, PEOPLE.com

Why She Volunteered: Cleaning has become a “hobby” now that I’m a mom of two to a 6-year-old and a 9-month-old

I used to think I was really good at keeping house. Then I had kids.

Kids teach you so much – about love, innocence, patience … and how much dust, grime, glitter and all manner of detritus wind up everywhere.

There’s my free-spirited older child, who routinely snips construction paper into pieces of confetti and leaves a trail of tiny plastic toy parts around the house.

Tia Mowry-Hardrict: Cree Loves Spinach, Broccoli, Quinoa and More

05/22/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

While many moms are forced to find creative ways to encourage their toddlers to eat their veggies, actress Tia Mowry-Hardrict is thrilled she doesn’t have to. In fact, son Cree, almost 3, actually requests them — to the surprise of all.

“Recently at one of our favorite restaurants in L.A., I ordered spinach for [him] and there was a mother staring us down, looking at [us] to see if he was really going to eat it!” she says with a laugh.

“But he loves it! He loves spinach, broccoli, quinoa … and he loved pureed organic carrots when he was a baby. It’s all about instilling healthy habits now, so when he gets older, he’ll continue.”

But healthy eating hasn’t always been a part of Mowry-Hardrict’s life. Shortly after tying the knot with actor husband Cory Hardrict in April 2008, the actress, 35, knew she wanted to start a family. However, after an endometriosis diagnosis that resulted in two surgeries, she wasn’t sure it could happen.

As a new mom still in the thick of newborn-ness, Jaime King has strong opinions about which baby items are really worth having.

And she’s more than willing to share her recommendations with others.

“I wish there had been a site like Cricket’s Circle when I was pregnant! I’m a minimalist, we don’t like to have a lot of stuff or junk or waste,” she said.

“Doesn’t matter what it costs, but does it work for you, your life and your child. I went through so many things out there and this is what I realize really works.

Recently, King revealed her favorites with the cool online mommy resource and we’re sharing a few with you. Check them out below.
