Little Pickle Press is dedicated to this cause, with a mission to “help parents and educators cultivate conscious, responsible little people.” This includes teaching the importance and responsibility of being green and recycling. Little Pickle’s conservation efforts stand out in its various products — including posters and children’s books — and particularly shine through in the book, What Does It Mean To Be Green?

After all the Christmas shopping is done, the wrapping begins! Most of us traditionally surround each gift with tissue and a box, cut wrapping paper just the right size, fold here, tape there, and top with a name tag, ribbon, and bow. All that time and effort are quickly undone when Christmas morning frenzy makes the paper fly. Sadly, when the unwrapping is done, the bulk of packaging overflows trash bins and makes its way to the landfills. It seems like such a waste, literally! That’s exactly the sentiment Adrienne Johns experienced after a family Christmas a few years back, and thus ellaWrap was created.

Itzy Ritzy, a company delivering chic and functional baby, toddler and adult products is proud to announce its partnership with Nordstrom.
