Greenzys Review and Giveaway- closed

When I was growing up my parents didn’t even know what “green” meant, other than a color of course. Now that I’m older and live on my own I make my own life style decisions. We have decided to be more “green” as a family. It’s been a little hard retraining ourselves with some things. Now that we are used to it though, the changes are great, and better for our families in most ways.

I came across a book called Greenzys, it is geared towards children to help teach them early on to be more “green”. I read through the book before I let Natalie see it and it was so cute! The illustrations are great and the story is written in a way for children to understand. Now I think Natalie is a little too young to understand the meaning of the book but I’m happy about letting her read it over and over until she is old enough to get it.


They also offer stuffed plush animals that match the characters in the book, what a neat idea! Here is a little about their plush animals from their site:

The soft cuddly plush toys are made in socially responsible factories from soy fibers and non-toxic dyes with packaging made from recycled paperboard. When you purchase one of these loveable toys, you and your child will have an opportunity to actively help preserve the environment.  For every toy purchased, a tree is planted. Your child can personalize a printable, digital certificate documenting the planting of the tree that they will cherish forever. Imagine the excitement children will experience knowing they can personally make a difference!

I also really like the company who makes Greenzys; they are very Eco Friendly. When you make a purchase of one of their stuffed toys or books they make contribution to a green non-profit organization! How awesome is that! First, you are helping your child learn to be more green and you are making a contribution at the same time!


Want a Book and plush of your own? Books can be purchased from Amazon.com, FAO Schwarz New York, Kids Books Section of Green Depot Retailers and Green Depot.com. The Plush animals can be found at FAO.com and FAO Schwarz New York.

Or you can WIN your very own copy of the book here:
