Give Your Kids Consciousness for Christmas

As a native New Yorker, before I moved to California I thought drinking tea was New Age-y and I didn’t know a chakra from a hole in the wall. After five years in California I go to acupuncture, own a pair of Birkenstocks and my boyfriend’s mother is a healer. Fancy that.

The older I get the more my sensibilities change and things that used to seem to be squarely in the hippy corner I now find very appealing. Take, for example, the Awakening Consciousness for Girls and Awakening Consciousness for Boys by Robin Marvel, two workbooks designed to encourage spiritual growth in children and to guide them on a path of self-awareness. These are books you’ll want under your tree this Christmas.

The books arrived at my doorstep as part of the Green Books Campaign, in which 100 bloggers help support books printed in an eco-friendly manner by …read more of Give Your Kids Consciousness for Christmas here

Baby Deluxe

With all of the delicious eco-friendly baby products on the market I often find myself coveting items made especially for infants. Recently I found myself fervently wishing that the Ruffle Blanket from Organica Deluxe would morph into an adult-sized wrap.

Alas, it did not.

One consolation is that if you wrap your baby in this delicious blanket you’ll get to hold it close. Made of 100 percent certified organic cotton fleece by Robbie Adrian, the blanket is somehow precious and elegant at the same time. Measuring 17″ x 20″ inches, choose between a white, pink or blue silk ruffle on a white blanket.

The blanket, which is available on the Organica Deluxe website, retails for $36 and arrives in a box, making it the perfect gift.

What is more precious than your baby? Knowing that your baby is completely chemical-free. We brought some of our littlest road testers on board for the Nascar of bathing events to find the best phthalates- and paraben-free (and in most cases organic) products on the market. So get ready to get all lathered up. …read more of This Little Piggy Went Chemical-Free here

You’ve purchased all the school supplies, but with just a few days left before your children head off to school, there are still more items on the list: the components of the back-to-school wardrobe.

New shoes, new t-shirts and even a new fall coat are likely in your kids’ future. By making greener choices for their wardrobes, you can protect the health of your kids and the planet. Many natural materials are hypo-allergenic. And organic cotton is a healthier choice because it’s free of potentially dangerous pesticides.

To help you start thinking – and wearing – green, here are some companies that make fashionable children’s clothing from sustainable materials. With these pieces and others from these earth-friendly retailers, your child will be the sleekest, greenest fashionista around. …read more of Wardrobe Basics for the Next Generation of Green Kids here
