Getting your kids on board the eco-friendly journey can be challenging initially, but it is not impossible. There are several eco-friendly products made from natural materials but with kids it's important to have a balance of fun, brightness, and safety. That's why choosing recyclable, reusable and chemical free products are essential.
Welcome to my blog; it's a delight to have you with us. This time, we at Eco Bravo are taking our attention to children and how they can fight for a greener environment. We will be exploring eco-friendly options to introduce to kids.
Besides keeping the environment safe, eco-friendly products are cheaper, better for your kid's health, and easier to maintain. Don't have an idea of what eco-friendly products to introduce to your kids? Don't worry; we have put together a list of 10 eco-friendly options to introduce to kids.
Wooden plates and Cups
Before the introduction of Chinaware, wooden plates and cups were used to eat and drink. However, china is not used when serving children because it breaks easily and can injure your child. If you think plastic plates and cups are better alternatives, then you are risking your children's health. Besides being dangerous to the environment because they cannot be recycled, plastic products contain toxic substances. Therefore, using wooden plates and cups for your kids is advised.
Finding it difficult to get a perfect alternative for the plastic cutlery your children use? Wooden cutlery is not only eco friendly but is safe for your children's health. Because children like new and exciting things, introducing wooden forks, spoons, and knives will make mealtimes fun. In addition to being easy for your children to use, wooden cutleries are made from treated wood and are durable.
Most toys for kids are made from plastic, which is not safe for your kids or the environment. On the other hand, wooden toys are a suitable replacement and are sure to arouse your children's curiosity. They are also durable and will open your children's mind to a whole new world filled with creativity. Do your little ones make a lot of mess when playing? With a wooden toy, you don't have to worry about your kids playing with dirty toys.
Fabric made toys
Introducing fabric made or soft toys to your kids will certainly win you a place in their hearts. Besides being soft and cuddly, fabric made toys are a suitable alternative for toddlers who love to chew their toys. You won't don't want your kids to chew on plastic or wooden toys. While the former is unsafe, the latter is sure to injure your child. In addition to being safe for your kids to play with, fabric made toys are reusable and recyclable. You can wash them when they are dirty.
Reusable nappies come in many forms, but most times, they are fabric made diapers. As the name implies, reusable diapers can be reused and are recyclable. But that's not all. Being eco friendly is not the only reason why you should introduce reusable diapers to your kids. This is because reusable diapers do not contain chemicals that can pose a threat to your kid's health. Also, if your kid's skin reacts badly when regular diapers are used, you should introduce your child to reusable diapers instead.
Unlike your regular sponge, a loofah sponge is made from natural and organic materials. This means the loofah sponge will not cause any harm to your children's skin, and it is compatible with all skin types. Because the loofah sponge has a rough texture, it will exfoliate your child's skin and remove dead skin cells. However, your child's skin is not the only thing the loofah sponge is safe for; it is also environmentally friendly.
Instead of using plastic wrap to package your child's sandwich, there is an even better alternative. A reusable sandwich wrapper is also safe for the environment. Unlike plastic wraps that are toxic and not safe for your kids, a reusable sandwich wrapper doesn't pose a threat to your kids' health.
Reusable baby wipes
These are fabric made baby wipes that can be reused. All you have to do is re-soak instead of washing and drying. Besides being safe for the environment, reusable baby wipes are great if your baby's skin is sensitive to usual wipes. Unlike disposable baby wipes, fabric made baby wipes are easy to use and maintain. In addition, they are cheaper than disposable baby wipes and more healthy for your baby's skin.
Plastic toothbrushes are made with harmful chemicals that can affect your children's health. Fortunately, a bamboo toothbrush is an eco-friendly, safe and easy to use alternative. This is because it is made from bamboo stems, which do not require fertilizer to grow. Also, bamboo toothbrushes are not treated with harmful chemicals, unlike plastic toothbrushes. Looking for a toothbrush that is safe for your child's teeth and the environment? A bamboo toothbrush is your best bet.
Metal Water bottles
Most children like to drink water frequently, and your child is no different. However, you don't want your child drinking from a plastic water bottle. This is because plastic water bottles contain harmful chemicals that can contaminate your child's drinking water. Introducing your child to metal water bottles is a suitable alternative. This is because metal water bottles are easy to use and clean, and they can also maintain the temperature of the liquid in them. Lastly, metal water bottles are safe for the environment.
