Holiday Guft Guide Day 42 - EcoMom Review and Giveaway

Today's Gift Idea is brought to you by Eco Mom.

Eco Mom is a fun website that is dedicated to helping consumers take small steps to a more natural life.  They also have a huge variety of high quality natural, organic, and environmentally friendly products for sale on their site.  What's more, all products on EcoMom.com have been EcoMom Approved™. This means that anything you purchase here has been vetted, as categorically applicable, according to standards critical to healthy families and a healthy world.

Their selection is truly impressive.  They have green cleaning supplies, clothes and products for the home.  They also have a great selection of books, toys, and art supplies.

I received one of the Artterro Art Kits to review, and it was really fun. Artterro art kits are an eco friendly alternative to conventional art kits. They use 100% recycled paper and minimize packaging with every kit to make the product as green as possible.

The Wool Felt Wearable Kit we received comes with everything needed to make 6 Jewelry pieces


The kit contains100% Wool Felt Shapes, Craft Thread, Wide Selection of Beads, Needles, and Jewelry Backings.  What you are supposed to do is use the thread to either string the beads or sew the beads onto the felt pieces.  But as my girls are a little young and I am somewhat sewing challenged, we took our project in a slightly different direction.


Our Christmas Ornaments!

It was really fun to try and find creative ways to use the items we already had lying around the house.  And Kik loved designing her own ornaments!

To Buy It - Artterro kits retail at about $17 and can be used in a variety of art projects.  And if art isn't your thing EcoMom also sells a wide variety of other products.  I challenge you to take a step in the natural direction and buy at least one eco-friendly products today!
