Tuesday Green: Celebrate the Earth with these amazing things

Cotton Comforts

It’s easy-does-it with Broken Tricycle’s soft, organic cotton playwear. Artful graphics (polka-dot umbrellas, houses perched on rainbows) spice up sweatshirts, rompers, and leggings in sizes newborn through age 3.
Available at brokentricycle.com, $22-$48.

Follow the Reader

The Anahi and Vir series of hardbound books introduces budding ecologists to different animals and their habitats. Get lost in tropical, seaside, and jungle adventure tales.

Easy Roller
It’s seven toys in one. A kit of wooden pieces (sourced from sustainably harvested bent-ply birch) lets you build several different playthings, from a ride-on toy to a wheelbarrow. Your perpetual mind-changer will thank you — and so will the landfills.
Available at weefab.com, $99.

Baby Soft

The everyday routine is extra fresh and clean with Seventh Generation’s new baby care line. Diapers, wipes, and laundry detergents are created from mostly plant- and mineral-based ingredients.

Float On

After Green Toys’ vessel’s maiden bathtub voyage, scrub-a-dub time will never be the same. Load its compartments with precious cargo and enjoy the fact that it’s made from recycled plastic milk jugs.

Rise and Dine

For your next course: Little Duck Organics Mighty Oats. The mix of quinoa, chia, buckwheat, oat, millet, and organic freeze-dried fruit helps breakfast uphold its title of Most Important Meal. Plus, cardboard packaging containing seeds (lettuce, tomato, carrot) can be planted in your garden.
Available at your local Whole Foods Market, $4.


Pretty, vegan finger paints look good enough to eat. Good news: You can. Red/pink is made with real beets and orange/yellow is made with actual pumpkin. The list goes on.
