Earth Day with Green Toys Puzzles

Fun and learning fit together with the Green Toys™ Puzzles! The colorful Dump Truck, Garden, and Tea Time puzzles are just right for toddlers developing fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination.

These durable, 4-piece sets perfect starter-puzzles, with easy-to-hold 3D pieces that encourage imagination and pretend play. Children can easily identify the shapes of the pieces, building cooperative play and communication skills as they ask for a wheel, cupcake, or flower to complete their masterpiece.

With 2 nephews and a brand new niece, I know there are plenty of occasions in need of new toys. Toys that the kids can learn from and benefit the earth is a major bonus! I can’t wait to have my niece try out the new Green Toys Puzzles. I think she will need a break from her brothers’ lightsabres and robots and love her Garden Puzzle.

A to Z of D-Toxing: The Ultimate Guide to Reducing Our Toxic Exposures

Just like our bodies, we are only given one earth.  Making changes in your personal health takes effort and close attention, so it’s no surprise that when attempting to make changes to the Earth’s health similar attention is needed. As the author of A to Z of D-Toxing: The Ultimate Guide to Reducing Our Toxic Exposures, Sophia Ruan Gusheé understands this with mastery.

Below 3 Tips from Sophia to boost our Planet’s health this Earth Day:


  1. Learn more about proper recycling practices.
  • For instance, did you know that lightbulbs, ceramics, pyrex, and broken glass cannot be recycled at home? That pizza boxes can only be recycled when the spots with grease residue have been discarded? Or that it’s perfectly fine to add glossy paper, like junk mail and magazines, to your paper recycling bin?


  1. Support the planet’s health by eating more plant based meals. Experts say that switching to a vegetarian diet will reduce your carbon footprint more than abandoning your car would!
  • If you’re thinking – didn’t I recently read that lettuce is worse for the environment than bacon? – Rest assured that when you compare lettuce and bacon pound per pound, and not by calorie, a pound of bacon has six times the carbon footprint than a pound of lettuce, according to the Environmental Working Group.


  1. Focus on reducing toxic exposures
  • Industrial chemicals, used to make our consumer product, have been found all over the world – in humans, in wildlife, and in the most pristine corners of the world, and have been linked to a slew of adverse health effects in humans and animals. D-toxing your products will help reduce the demand for harmful chemical ingredients, which will promote the health of our planet.
