My Bag and Me

511trxwjl_sl500_aa240_.jpgBringing reusable bags to the grocery store is a great way to reduce waste and keep plastic bags out of our landfills. Not only that, but bringing your own bag is just an ultra-hip thing to do; at least we think so! Now there’s a great new board book available to help teach young children about the importance of toting reusable shopping bags – My Bag and Me by Karen Farmer. This adorable board book is shaped like — you guessed it! — a reusable bag and there’s even a kid-sized shopping tote inside the book! But the best part is the simple message it imparts — bring a bag to the store and you’ll be helping to save the planet. It’s a great message for kids to hear early and often so that as they grow older, bringing their own reusable bags will be second nature to them, which is really cool. But can you imagine telling your grandchildren about the olden days when we all just threw bags in the trash? So not cool!

Congratulations to Jennifer H., Jamie V., Priscilla, Lindsie and Ann, winners of a copy of My Bag and Me!

Wearing Her Art on Her Sleeve

kicekicedottee.jpgBuying organic, fair-trade children’s clothing doesn’t mean having to sacrifice style, especially when it comes to the hand-appliquéd dresses, t-shirts and pants from Kice Kice. Founded by artists and twin sisters Karen Kice and Lesley Nishigawara, Kice Kice specializes in environmentally and socially responsible clothing. Their spring 2008 line is made from 100% organic cotton and features playful designs that are comfortable enough to wear during playtime, but stylish enough to wear out for a special event. Each garment truly looks like a work of art – and like a work of art, each garment is individual and varies slightly due to its handmade nature.

A Hot Sling for A Hot Mama

large.jpgThe Hotsling is the first and only pouch sling that I have ever purchased, and I love it. Not only does it do a great job of hiding my post-pregnancy belly, but it’s also super easy to use. Just slip it over your head, drop your baby inside, and off you go! Because it’s sized to fit, you don’t have to learn how to wrap it or adjust it so it’s a great beginner sling. Hotslings come in a lot of great prints, but I have to give it up for the undyed, unbleached hemp/organic cotton Hotsling. It’s machine washable, sweatshop-free, made in the U.S.A., fits easily in your diaper bag and hides your belly flab! If that’s not hot, I don’t know what is.

Find It Here: fawnandforest.com

Congratulations Kari, winner of a Hotsling in natural organic cotton!

Deal: fawnandforest.com is offering 15% off all slings + carriers through the end of February!
