I’ve written before about the importance of shopping ethically, but what if you’ve got kids? Never fear, there are loads and loads of great companies out there making some fantastic ethical kids clothing.

I know as a parent it can be difficult to justify the cost of kidswear, particularly as they grow out of things so fast.  So to go easy on your purse I’ve done a little roundup of some great ethical kids clothing that’s currently in the summer sales:

Environmental Books for Kids: The Journey Home

I haven’t come across many environmental story books for younger children but a little while ago I came across “The Journey Home” by Frann Preston-Gannon in my local bookshop, so immediately picked it up for my daughter.

The Journey Home

Centred around a polar bear whose home on the ice caps is melting: the polar bear sets off on a journey to find a new home and comes across some other animals who are all in the same boat – whose habitats are being lost or destroyed.

The Journey Home Frann Preston-Gannon

The illustrations are stunning and the story is simple, making it a great way to introduce ideas of conservation and the impact of man on the planet with older children in a simple and accessible manner.

My own daughter is a bit too young for the book – it’s probably better suited for four, five and six year olds – but it’s a good read – one that we all enjoy.  Recommended!
