A Nature Education: Recycled Plastic Bird Feeder

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

For homes who do not or cannot have pets, having a bird feeder nearby will do wonders for your child’s development. Observing animals are an endless education to kids who are just starting to see. On top of that, there is an Asian saying that homes who welcome birds are blessed. I remember when my kid was 3 months or 4 months old, he started noticing the birds outside. It was great visual and auditory stimulation, and I was in awe of his being in awe. Now that he is older, watching birds involve more a behavioral observation with more fascination. At any age, animal watching is one of the best teachings of nature one can get.
This bird feeder is not only slick, its use of natural earth colors allows it to blend in with the trees. It is wonderfully made from post-consumer recycled plastic (over 90% recycled plastic) and designed for easy maintenance and large feed capacities. Itholds up much better than a cheaper feeder, and it’s worth the purchase price.

And if you live in a super urban area where there is NO WAY you can have a bird feeder like the one above, there’s an option for you too! Here is the Window Bird Feeder that can be perched just outside your window with two suction cups. It is also made of up to 90-percent post-consumer recycled plastic, with powder coated metal screen bottom allowing for drainage.

Renewable, sustainable, natural and eco-friendly table set for toddlers

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

My kid is starting to become old enough to eat on his own. But, when he is in a cranky mood (which is sadly often) he will, without hesitation, throw things on the floor. He will also accidentally tip over his cup, plate, spoon, fork, etc. quite frequently. I guess the rage and/or excitement is still hard to manage. So basically, I need to graduate from the baby dishware and move on to a more toddler dishware. But I need something durable, loveable, natural, and eco friendly. Enter this Bobo & Boo 5 Piece Kids Bamboo Dinnerware Set. A wonderful starter kit with various cute colors to choose from. They are made out of natural bamboo are non-toxic, FDA approved and BPA free. Perfectly sized for little fingers, these bamboo dishes are renewable, sustainable, dishwasher safe and very easy to clean. This is a great kit to start your kid’s independence at the table. And the price is reasonable!

Adjustable fruit bowl made out of hemp and cotton

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

I love bowls. I can never have enough of them. Especially with kids when I need to throw in fruit, bread, snacks, or even toys, I appreciate a cute and functional bowl that I won’t be embarrassed placing on top of my dining table…and calling it “interior decoration”. This one is a nice deep navy color that matches almost any color palette, made entirely from hemp and cotton. Shape it, fold it, or roll its edges to modify its size for whatever you put in it. It will sit in your living room fashionably and sustainably. Apparently, hemp has some wonderful characteristics. It has 8x the tensile strength and 4x the durability of other natural fibers. It is mildew resistant and anti-microbial. Who knew?
