I particularly dig the Eliot Elephant diaper (pictured on the left) but they have many adorable diaper patterns. Some others that I think are great, and would love to get for my little boy-on-the-way, include...

Slacker!

I'm a HUUUUUUGE blog slacker. I need to make up for it today with some eco-friendly items that help us slackers slack just a little less...

Lists can really get me organized, if I can manage to keep them all in one designated location. What a better way to do this, than with some eco note pads!



Having everything in its right place could help me to be a bit more on my game too. Here are a few places to store your stuff, eco-style...

Easter's on its Way!

This is one of those great holidays for kids especially, I think. So I found some eco-alternatives for the kiddies this Easter...

Organic Cotton Baby Hat - Chocolate Bunny

This could be a very cute item for baby's first Easter, especially considering you probably don't want to give your little one a ton of candy this early.
................................................................................

Wooden Easter Eggs

Yes, regular eggs can be fun to dye. But if you don't feel the need to dye them, or you know your family will never eat that many hard boiled eggs, these wooden eggs can be a cute Easter egg alternative that you can use year after year.
................................................................................

Moody Birdies - Easter Tags x5

Made in part with recycled paper. A very cute way to label Easter baskets and the like.
................................................................................

Fancy Bunny- Eco Friendly Plush

Don't want to put a gargantuan chocolate bunny in your kid's Easter basket? I don't blame you. I was never a fan of that much chocolate, or the fact that it was shaped like a rabbit. I could never manage to get past its ears either, with all the other competing candy in my basket. So why not forgo that unnaturally large chocolate rabbit and replace it with an adorable eco-friendly stuffed rabbit, saving your child the post candy jitters!

LOL Bags

Aw man, there's nothing better than a funny catch phrase on a tote, except maybe a funny eco catch phrase on a tote...

Basically what all of these bags say to me is, "Get with the cool kids, and lose those nerdy plastic bags already." All I have to say in return is, "I'm already on it..."

Moss Mania

Moss is catching on in the crafting world. I have been a fan of mossy craftings ever since I discovered the awesome moss makes of Ottoman, like this Moss Pincushion



More recently, neatness like moss terrariums have cropped up, an ingeniously adorable conception of madebymavis. These little terrariums combine nature and vintage to form very unique decorative pieces.



And last in this wonderfully green moss collection today, comes a set of Gather Moss Earrings by AdornJewelry. They're so intriguing I can't look away!

Green in More Ways Than One

Cosaverde.com is this awesome site that showcases eco-friendly handmade items for sale. You could be selling your handmade stuff on Etsy, 1000Markets, Artfire, Dawanda, and many other places, and still get it showcased on Cosa Verde, making it a great one-stop resource for eco-friendly items. Albeit, the site is still in its infancy, it's coming along quite nicely. I've searched for green items on Cosa Verde to give you a taste of what you can find on this site...

Knit bear made of wool, with eco stuffing...


Tote made entirely of recycled materials...


Crocheted reusable cleaning cloths...
