Buying Green: New Green Products

Kids can get into injuries all over - on the playground, playing sports, and even getting scrapes indoors. Omyst helps you treat all sorts of injuries (well, it won't set a broken bone, but it takes care of a lot of other common wounds). The bottle is small, so it's easy to carry around. It's made with 100% organically grown herbs and is the first patented organic first-aid spray. Instead of being an ointment that can irritate kids as you push to spread it around, it's a fine spray that dries quickly, helping wounds like cuts, scratches, rashes, bites, and minor burns. The ingredients are specially blended to treat mild injuries: Calendula soothes, softens and reduces inflammation; Yarrow kills a wide range of bacteria and prevents fungal growth; Plantain restores, kills germs and helps stop bleeding; Wild roses rejuvenate, soothe and heal. The spray is non-toxic and safe for all ages. It's easy to use, and my daughter actually enjoyed the cooling feeling of the spray as well!

Also for parents - Dr. Drip Coffee provides a single-serve brewing system. Just add hot water! The packets are recyclable and compostable, easy to use, and come in several varieties, including one 100% organic variety.

Then there's the Vapur - a very portable BPA-free reusable water bottle. When it's empty it rolls up, so you can stick it in any bag without wasting space. There are two sizes, one of which is perfect for kids, and it comes in many fun designs so kids and parents alike will enjoy using it.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary bottle of Omyst, package of Dr. Drip, and Vapur bottle to facilitate this review.
