Tis The Season For Eco-Friendly Care Package Tips

It’s the time of year when parents are packing up their kids, sending them back to school and quite possibly, wiping a tear away from their eyes. Whether you choose to send a practical care package (stuff they need), gifts they love (stuff they want), or a reminder of home (mom’s brownies and papa’s Rice Krispie Treats), all care packages are a joy to receive!

Here are a few tips for sending your camper, college kid, or comrade an eco-friendly care package:

1. Every college kid is going to have to finally wash and fold their own clothes. Help them whiten their clothes with green options including Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day laundry detergent and fabric softener. All laundry products are biodegradable, phosphate free, and made with natural essential oils. They also smell extraordinarily fresh which will help remove the unexplainable musky odor.

2. Everyone knows the secret to someone’s heart is straight through their stomach. We challenge you to set out to make and send home-baked goods. If you haven’t a clue where to start, check out Heidi Swanson’s 101 Cookbooks baked goods recipes. They’re simply delicious and dare I say, even nutritious?! These Quinoa Cloud Cookies are perfect for all the big dreamers in your life.

3. Campers beware of ghost stories and sunburns. Protect your little ones from the outdoors with California Baby sun care products including sunscreen lotion, sunblock, and a soothing and healing spray. The products contain organic and sustainably grown ingredients, are UVA⁄UVB Broad Spectrum Protection Water Resistant, PABA Free and chemical free.

4. Send a reminder of how much you love your gift receiver, on recycled stationery. Nothing says, I love you better than a hand-written note that says, “I love you” (funny, non)?! Well, what do you know? Eco-chic notes are available, right here (big grin)!
