Going green is the latest trend for families and it’s a great way to teach kids about taking care of the environment. There are tons of simple changes families can make in their everyday lives to be a little more green. This includes purchasing products that are eco-friendly. Many brands are now finding ways to make their products eco-friendly and these items make the perfect gifts for families! Here is my top 10 list of eco-friendly gifts for families.
Cloth diapers can be a bit on the pricey side, but they are a smart long-term investment when you think of how much money you spend on disposable diapers over the years. New cloth diaper choices that are available are more breathable for baby and won’t result in any leaking. They also come in adorable colors and designs and are made organic so they are gentle for baby. For parents making the switch to cloth diapers, Bummis cloth diapers are a good choice. Bummis are healthy, soft organic cotton cloth diapers that are sustainably made in North America for eco-conscious parents.

spbang launched in October 2013 and the product was invented after a mom with a ‘job 1′ in the automotive industry was tired of tossing ziploc bags daily. She then moved onto reusable fabric snack bags but they would stink like yesterday’s lunch and would never come truly clean. Using automotive material and processes, spbang reusable snack bags are FDA food touch safe and free from lead, BPA and phthalates. Best part is you toss them in the dishwasher at the end of the day and they are ready for tomorrow.
