Green Gift Ideas from Raising Green Kids

When I received the Owie Bag from Raising Green Kids I had every intention on it being needed for my kids. The hubs actually used it twice before either one of the kids needed it, lol. So, what is this Owie Bag? It is a handmade, eco-friendly, non-toxic, reusable, pain relief pack filled with flax seed. It can be used for many ailments as a hot pack or a cold pack. Organic flaxseeds are used in these packs for longer heat retention.

Here is my daughter feeling a bit under the weather…sipping her herbal tea with her cold Owie pack on her head:

Raising Green Kids carries these nifty little reusable and washable sandwich bags, which are extremely handy. With my daughter and hubby taking their lunches almost daily I cringe at all the plastic bags that were being used. The Lunchskins bag solves that problem! And the materials these bags are made from are non-toxic and food safe.
Price: $16.75 for a 2 pack

Raising Green Kids also has a variety of other “green” items ranging from toys and art supplies to household items and cleaners.

Gifts for Women: Maggie Bags Made with Up Cycled Seat Belts

This particular bag is the Cicily Tote, it measures 12″ L x 5″ W x 7″ H, making it the perfect size for me. I don’t carry a whole lot of stuff in my purse, just the necessities, so I don’t need a huge bag. Oversized bags are actually quite a pain for me. I love the signature purple satin lining of the bags. The inside zipper pockets are a convenient place to keep pens or a cell phone. The outside is sturdy and thick, I can see this bag holding up and withstanding wear and tear for years to come… it is made from seatbelt material after all.
