greentones toy instruments

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

These instruments are amazing!!  They are great for toddlers, prescholers, and elementary school aged kids.  They're durable wood, and they have a nice sound - not annoying sounds like cheap toy instruments.  

Plus, they're adorable looking!  Look at those bears. So cute!

They're definitely eco-friendly, too!  All Green Tones instruments are made with chemical free Rubberwood or Mangowood, non-toxic glue, and water-based VOC free paint.  They're good for the environment and safe for kids!

My family loves the Litter Free Lunch Kit by New Wave Enviro Products.  For just over  twenty dollars, you get an insulated lunch box, a beverage container, two small snack containers, one medium-sized container, and a larger container which is good for sandwiches, small salads, etc.    It's great for packing a school lunch for kids, a work lunch for adults, or just a picnic for an afternoon at the park!   The bottle can also be filled with ice and used as an ice pack.  ... read more

lunchopolisThe Lunchopolis, by New Wave Enviro Products, is awesome.   For only twenty bucks, you get an insulated lunch box, a beverage container, two small snack containers, and two larger containers which are good for sandwiches and whatnot.  

While not as green as stainless steel food containers, they are BPA-free and reusable.  They're also a lot cheaper than stainless steel options.  They're sturdier than most inexpensive plastic containers and without a BPA plasticky smell.... read more

It's a little expensive, but very cool.

This is a very cool little snack bag, made by Kids Konserve.  Perfect for a small lunch, snack, or picnic, it produces a waste-free lunch.  Forget the Ziplocs, brown bags, and paper napkins...it's time to "konserve!" :-)

The Snak Pak contains: a cotton drawstring bag, cotton napkin, a round leak-proof stainless steel container, and the reusable food wrap, dubbed "the food kozy."  

I find it very useful for going places with my toddler.  Everything can fit neatly in the bag and it doesn't create any garbage.   I don't know why I never thought of bringing a cloth napkin on the go!  I also throw in a few Lucky Butterfly reusable snack bags filled with cereal and other small snacks to keep some extra food handy. ... read more

Adorable, durable kids books with cute illustrations

Made of 98% recycled materials, a "green" message, environmentally themed activities at the end

A little more expensive than similarly sized books, but worth it
Overall Rating:

When I saw these books at the toy store, I couldn't resist buying one.  First off, they're made of 98% recycled materials.  They're also more durable than most kids books.  Not as durable as a traditional board book, but far more durable than a regular paper book.  I can actually read this to my 9 month old without worrying that within the blink of an eye he'll destroy the pages.
