Stuff We Like: Earth Day Finds

Earth Day is April 22. Celebrate the holiday with these earthy finds encouraging a green thumb or promoting green living, and don’t forget to get outside and appreciate nature!

 

Green Thumb

The plush, machine-washable toy encourages color matching. The garden, which is segmented into colors with a coordinating insect and flower piece attached with Velcro, teaches learning and love of nature, no dirt necessary.

 

Sweet Dreams

The jersey bedding comes in four colors in all bed sizes—including twin XL ($144). Your collegiate kid will have the most sophisticated bed in the dormitory, and you’ll finally be able to outfit that extra-long daybed in the guest room with sheets that don’t look like they were made for babies.

 

Think Outside the House

Children aren’t the only ones who should be playing outside. In This Book Was a Tree (Perigee, $16), Marcie Chambers Cuff presents activities for adults—with or without their children—to get them outside and appreciating nature. Cuff is calling for a “new era of pioneers” to reconnect with the Earth through hands-on activities in the great outdoors. Put down the cell, go outside, and begin deciphering nature’s puzzles.

 

Time to Save the World

Or at least help keep it green. Sprout creates eco-friendly watches made from sustainable elements like bamboo, cork, organic cotton, and biodegradable corn resin. Don’t let the last one fool you: They’re not edible. They are, however, very stylish. With a varied lineup ($30-$75) including watches featuring bright colors, Swarovski crystals, and adorable animals, there’s a style for every member of the family.
