In honor of Earth Day... A few companies Mother Earth would be proud to call friends

I figured since I took the time to complain about a pile of companies doing crappy stuff in the name of Mother Earth, I should also take the time to commend a few fabulous companies putting the green in, well, being green.

One of my favorite kids products is Planet Box ($34.95-$59.95), I went on and on about how great they are on a Momtrends post already, but this lunch transportation for the green generation not only will cut your kids lunch waste down to nothing (most kids generate ninety pounds of lunch garbage a year) the ingenious bento design really will encourage your kids to eat healthier. Just look out yummy this lunch looks:

I'm also a big fan of Hape International toys, which are designed with the belief that Whatever you do to the earth, you also do to your children. This company's vision and dedication to social responsibility is inspiring, not to mention the toys are well-made, sold in ecologically-sound packaging, and fun.

My son loves his car, the e-racer Monza ($19.99):
And last, there's Green Toys, made in the USA mainly from recycled milk jugs. My kids have the Indoor Gardening Kit ($19.99) from which they were able to grow real-life plants. And I like the look of the sweet yellow pots sitting in my kitchen window.

For my picks for great books to read with your kids for Earth Day, check out my post on Momtrends.

I was not compensated for this post. I purchased all these toys for my kids who don't need any more toys, so I guess I too could work on being a better friend to Mother Earth.

I'd love to hear about any other great green companies. Please share in honor of Earth Day!

Thanks for the info - love the lunchbox! My children also do not need toys and I'm thinking some family members are going to give for Easter. I want to say please just give them some money instead of made in china items.
