Sprout's Green Blog Hop week 5: Eco-friendly Summer Products

Welcome to Sprout's Green Blog Hop!

This is the weekly hop for GREEN bloggers to meet up and share one new green goal each week.

THIS WEEKS THEME IS: Eco Friendly Summer products - this week we hope you will share some of your favorite Green must-haves for summer: beach, bbq, and outdoor fun!
Here are my top 3 Green items for summer:

Sunscreen:  I have been using Jason Natural Cosmetics - Earth's Best Sun Block for the kids for a while and really like it - it's thick, doesn't smell and chemical free! I recently read about Nature's Gate Sunblock ranking high on EWG's Skin Deep Database and because of the great price on, am trying this now!  Make sure to stock up on sunscreen and don't leave home without it!

Beach Toys:  I really love Green Toys because they are made from recycled milk jugs, come in simple, recycled cardboard packaging, and most of all, they are durable and fun!  Kids really love the Sand Play Set and Dump Truck and can spend hours playing with them at the beach or playground!  And these are so rugged that they will last year after year after year...

Lunch and Picnic products:  Now that the weather is nice we spend more time outdoors and often pack a lunch or picnic so we don't have to come back home to eat when out and about.  One of my favorite manufacturers of eco-friendly lunch products is Kids Konserve.  They have great stainless steel containers and kanteens as well as lunch bags made from recycled plastic containers!

Tell me what your favorite Green products for summer are!


Raising Green Richmond Kids - Dorinda is committed to raising Eco-friendly children and offers great info not only for families in Richmond, VA but to ANY family on a Green Mission! Raising Green Richmond Kids is a great blog to follow and I'm so happy to have her co-host throughout the summer!
Going Green With Noah - Melanie's blog aims to not only provide inspiration, but motivation to other moms to learn how to take small steps in creating a better and healthier environment for their little ones.  She has great giveaways (stay tuned for her 4th of July Givaway Gala!), product reviews, green tips (check out the 25 days to Green Travel!) and much more!

Mrs. T, Naturally - The name says it all! Mrs. T (Kristen) is a newbie blogger and has a very "natural" approach to her blog and it's very enjoyable to read!  She post about natural products, natural ingredients and other things she is passionate about like Family, photography, architecture and more.

  1. Hi just calling by from the Alexa Blog hop. I only just found your blog hop and will add it to my blog hop directory. My favourite Green summer item is vinegar. (I hope that was the right sort of thing you were after). Vinegar is such a versatile thing to have in the cupboard. Please check out my new Blog hop Making Goals Monday Sarah.
