We love these eco-friendly products for kids and families!

Yala Bamboo Dreams double-knot hat and onesie in red

Bamboo Dreams

Yala, a certified Green Business, uses solar energy to meet a portion of its energy needs, and because shipping generates more than 10 percent of the world's greenhouse gas emissions, the company partners with GreenShipping to offset all inbound and outbound shipments and remain carbon neutral. But what you really need to know: Yala's Bamboo Dreams apparel (for the whole family)...really does feel like a dream. We couldn't resist this newborn ensemble, but there's plenty to tempt mom (tunics, leggings), dad (tees), and kids of all sizes. Fabric is 95 percent viscose from bamboo with 5 percent Spandex for fit, and is machine-washable. ($14.50 for double-knot hat; $30 for onesie, sizes 0-24 months) 

Get Wired photo frame by Two's Company

 

 

Electric Colors

Who'd have guessed there was a more environmentally conscious way to display family photos? The rainbow of colors emblazoned on the Get Wired Photo Frame from Two's Company is composed of recycled wires from discarded and damaged electronic items - how cool is that? Available in two designs, stripes or checkers, the frame holds a 4" x 6" photo. ($17; www.burkedecor.com)

  

Urban Infant Skip Rope

 

 

 

Jump for Joy

The rope that skipped a landfill: Urban Infant Skip Ropes are constructed of 100 percent reclaimed rope, and the soft black rubber handles are also made from reclaimed materials - making the colorful classic toys something you can proudly give to your kids. While they're hitting the pavement for some double-dutch now that the snow's finally melted, make sure to clue them in to the positive environmental impact of choosing "green." (Ages 5 and up; $18 single rope, 7' length; $20 double rope, 15' length)

 

 

The Greenzys

 

Start 'Em Young

Get your littlest ones onboard the eco-train with Greenzys, characters who help bring the concept of environmentalism alive for your kids. Characters include Peat the Penguin, an ardent supporter of recycling, and Yew Yew the Panda, who grows bamboo to prevent erosion and create oxygen. The plush toys are made from soy fibers and nontoxic dyes with packaging made from recycled paperboard. The book by Danielle Mentzer with illustrations by Cris De Lara is not only an engaging, colorful read, but it includes real, do-able tips for going green. For every toy purchased a tree is planted by the Arbor Day Foundation. ($19.99 for each plush toy; $17.99 for book; available at FAO Schwartz, 767 Fifth Avenue, Manhattan or at www.fao.com)
