My Top Product Picks for Earth Day

There are some really awesome products out there that I want to give a shout out about for various reasons! What am I looking for in a great Earth Day product?

1. I want to see a great small business working hard to make a difference for their customers and for the planet.
2. I am looking for products that are earth-friendly and people friendly. I look for nontoxic, all natural, organic products that are also high quality products that will be useful in your daily life.

With that being said, I have four companies and products to share with you that meet those criteria in unique and special ways.

First, let me introduce you to SkinFood Topical Nourishment.  This is the coolest body salve, made from only USDA certified botanical ingredients & packaged in an environmentally responsible recycled paper tube. Not only is it ultra pure, but it is so versatile. I use it for my lips, hands, and the rest of my body. Wherever I crave moisture, I apply. I love that the paper tube it comes in is biodegradeable and neatly applies the salve no matter where you are. My kids also love this product, and I have no problem sharing this mess-free salve with them!

Kara and Tyler Erickson just started this company 8 months ago with a really special story and mission. I am proud to support them, and I hope you will too. Buy SkinFood right on their website!

Next up on my top picks for Earth Day is from Mom's Healthy Market. Mom’s Healthy Market is a trusted natural toy shop and whole food store providing inspiration and resources for raising healthier and smarter children. All of their hand-selected healthy products are Eco-friendly, Non-toxic, Safe, Organic, Preservative free, Educational, and/or Recommended by Doctors and Dietitians. I love knowing that you can't go wrong when shopping here.

My top pick from Mom's Healthy Market is their Apple Park Organic Bunny Blanket. This cute mini-blanket is my daughter's new favorite little snuggle toy. She loves how soft it is and how perfectly it fits in her arms. I love that it is made from 100% organic cotton and has naturally hypoallergenic filling. No toxins. No unfriendly dyes. You can find this cute and cuddly blankie and so much more at Mom's Healthy Market.

My next pick is so much fun! Orange Sherbet, a group of top-notch musicians is releasing its fifth CD, Delicious. Delicious is a tasty, jazzed-up, seventeen-song musical celebration of the foods of spring, summer, fall, and winter and the joys of growing, preparing, and enjoying nourishing, delicious meals. This CD was inspired by an Eat Local Challenge and encourages adventurous eating, with songs ranging from the jazzy to rock to a beautiful version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." I love how fun and unique each song is and how much you and your children can learn from the varied songs. My kids love guessing the different instruments used and love learning about new fresh fruits and veggies they have never heard of!

Check out their website for a sneak peek listen to Delicious, check out their Local Foods Wheel, and check back again on May 15th, when this great new CD is released!

Last, but definitely not least, I want to introduce you to Conscious Box. This is an extraordinary company that wants to help you discover the best of the planet with new surprises every month! That's right, Conscious Box sends you a new package monthly of pure and sustainable products that are handpicked from businesses that truly care for the planet.

For instance, some of the goodies in their March box were MixtBag chips, Mineral Hygienics $15 Gift Certificate, Morning Sunshine Breakfast Cookie, Crunchmaster crackers, Baker Creek Heirloom Tomato Seeds, Organic Java Juice, and Tea Forte Minteas. I love how Conscious Box introduces you to companies that might become new favorites of yours! I also love how they include a card in their box that gives you 5 fun ways to reuse your Conscious Box after you empty it. Truly a green idea! Check out their subscription options either for yourself or as a gift for a loved one!

All of these companies and products are unique at making a difference in our world! No matter what day of the year it is, let's celebrate that and support them!
