One of our most popular baby registry questions is how parents can stay eco-conscious, and still find amazing baby and family products which give back to the larger community. We’ve rounded up three fun items which not only are fun for the family, but give back to Mother Earth at the same time! Head to the bottom of the post for a chance to win these items!
Winterland by the Okee Dokee Brothers: We’ve been a long time fan of the Okee Dokee Brothers, with their upbeat children’s music, adored by parents and kids alike; their new Winterland album, available on Amazon, is a secular way to celebrate the winter season, with a fun mix of musical styles, such as Americana, Folk, and Bluegrass. Winterland embraces the cycles of loss and new life, darkness and light, bitter cold and warmth. It explores winter as not only a season defined by the weather, but as a feeling we carry within. Our editor-in-chief listened to Winterland with her two boys and they were blown away with how the album covers both fun topics, such as abominable yetis and Slumberjacks, and yet, also introduces more in-depth concepts to children, like gender roles, life and death, and – topics addressed on all of the Okee Dokee Brothers’ albums – the concepts of hope, growth, and family. The Okee Dokee Brothers dedicated Winterland to our beloved and endangered winters, which are warming fast as a result of climate change. What’s more, to help ensure their fans can enjoy a lifetime of snowy winter exploration, they are donating 10% of all Winterland CD sales to Askov Finlayson’s Keep the North Cold initiative, which supports leading-edge climate solutions in the North and across the country.
