Earth friendly & educational kids bath products.

I have always found it incredibly important to educate children about environmental awareness from a young age. This way they really LIVE it. If you implement eco friendly ideals in your home, your children will mimic and hopefully grow up doing the same. One can only hope. We started when Jords was a mere 2/3 months old by switching over the Fancy Pants reusable nappies. It was the best decision we ever made. We have not only saved money but we are doing our bit to save the planet. We are have a weekly recycling service in our area that collects your paper, plastic, glass and tins of the same day as your garbage. We don’t claim to be ambassadors on environmental awareness but I will certainly choose an earth friendly product over a regular one. Any day.

But hopefully by then we will have a tree filled with beautiful hand-made memories from over the years. Remember this one? It was one of my favourites and it’s just SO lovely if it’s your baby’s first Christmas.
