Cool parenting site of the week: TreeHugger.com
TreeHugger.com is the leading online media company dedicated to everything modern yet environmentally responsible. Their leadership has been recognized by the Bloggies, the Webbies, the Vloggies as well as Vanity Fair, The New York Times, Time, Domino, The Oprah Winfrey Show and many others. Offering environmental news, information, and tools to help people green their lives, TreeHugger brings sustainability into the mainstream.
We think their blog is great but what really stands out are their How to Go Green Guides. They’ll tell you how to green your pet, car, work, coffee and tea, wedding, public transportation, and even your dishwasher with varying levels of difficulty and dedication.
For greening your kids’ toys, they write,
Right on! Even if you’re not ready to go hardcore with fair-trade, ecological and locally made toys, you can do simple things like avoiding battery-operated toys (or if your kid insists, use rechargable batteries), only buy PVC-free toys, hang onto the boxes toys come in for future art projects, and more. They even suggest toys that are better for the environment and your child.
And if you have a baby or expecting one soon, you really should read their How to Green Your Baby Guide.
