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.

Eco-friendly Baby Spoons

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

If you’re looking for an affordable, eco-friendly baby shower gift, these cute little feeding spoons are a great idea. Made by Green Toys, based in California, they are made from recycled, post consumer milk jugs and are free of BPA, phthalates and PVC. Besides being very eco-friendly and safe for babies they are really very cute.

Their small size and short handles are perfect for babies just learning to feed themselves; no danger of them poking an eye out with an overlong handle. The handles may be a little too short for moms feeding babies straight from jars, and the bowls are quite shallow.

These feeding spoons do seem to be designed for babies rather than toddlers. There are eight spoons in the pack and all the packaging is recycled, printed in soy ink and eco-friendly too.
Costs $5.99 from Amazon.com
