Holiday Gift Guide: Ethical Ocean Review

Our purchasing decisions affect our society and the planet.
It’s up to each of us to know what we are buying and why—and how each product we spend our dollars on impacts other people, animals, and the environment.
But that doesn’t mean we have to know everything. We can share our knowledge, and ideas, to help one another choose wisely. That’s what Ethical Ocean is all about.

Ethical Ocean takes only the best products that meet one of their criteria - Good for People, Good for Animals, or Good for the Environment. They then offer all of these products in one spot for convenient and ethical shopping. They have such a wide variety of items that you can shop for everyone on your list. From clothing and shoes to electronics, food, and toys... it's all there. And each product offers an explanation of what it is and why it matters.

I was lucky enough to check out two products that are offered through Ethical Ocean. The first one is the Easy-to-Grow Mushroom Garden. I have never seen anything like this! You can actually grow your own mushrooms on your window sill.... and then eat them! This is a really fun thing to do with kids. They get to take care of their mushrooms, watch them grow, and then eat them. And to top it off, this product meets all three criteria and is good for People, Animals, and the Environment!

The next item I checked out is the Memory Stackers. These wooden toys are made from reclaimed wood and are completely non-toxic. Making this item good for the environment and people. I also love that this toy encourages kids to be creative and use their imaginations. They can build and play however they want without any bells, whistles, sounds, or batteries.

Ethical Ocean is a great place to shop for high quality products that are good for us and the future of our world. Check it out this holiday season!

Aren't they cool? I showed them to my mom and she said she had something just like them when she was a kid.
