Shopping. When was the last time you really felt good about it? Sure, you get the products you need and want, but does your purchase lead to any greater good for the world? Seems like more and more people are asking this type of question before they shop. I know I am. I feel better when I have a meaningful connection with the people I buy from and when I know that something good is coming from my purchase.

Enter Modern Kids Design.  Modern Kids Design is an online store offering beautifully designed natural and earth-friendly products for infants, children and families. Its mission is to raise awareness of environmental issues through design, and to be a resource for families interested in environmental issues.

The company carries a range of products from baby gear, furniture and toys to apparel and personal care products. It’s an assortment that’s modern in design yet classic in function, and everything is beautifully crafted, safe and environmentally sustainable.

Shop for a Cause

Company founder, Yvonne Hopkins knew from the start that she wanted to do more than simply sell environmentally friendly products. She wanted to create a direct link to helping environmental causes and initiatives. She designed the “Shop for a Cause” program to allow customers to make a donation with every purchase.

“Our customers are very environmentally aware and have a deep-seeded desire to support like-minded organizations.” “’Shop for a Cause”…lets them engage in the cycle of giving in a personal and meaningful way.” – Yvonne Hopkins, owner Modern Kids Design

Here’s how the program works:

  • Choose an organization from the list of non profits by clicking on the desired logo.
  • Click the “Select” button next to the logo (also select “Add to Cart” so that you’ll see your selection throughout the shopping process).
  • At checkout, 5% of your purchase will go to the cause you’d like to support.

Yep, it’s that easy!

A Day and Dinner at Star Thrower Farm

A Day on Star Thrower Farm via

Sometimes you just gotta take the plunge. When I first signed up my family for a day trip to a local farm, I wasn't sure how well it would go over. Would the boys rather be playing Minecraft on the computer? Would our weekend chores be neglected because we were gone all day? Would it rain and ruin all the fun? All worries aside, I signed … [Continue reading]

Safe Sunscreens that Rub in Easily

Safe Sunscreens that Rub in Easily via

  The most common question I get about safer sunscreens is whether or not they are hard to rub in and leave an obvious white residue behind. If you have kids, you'll know this is complaint #1 when it comes to sunscreen! When they were younger, my boys would get so annoyed with me that by the time we were done with sunscreen … [Continue reading]

Top 10 Reasons to See the Movie Fed Up via

Last weekend I saw a movie that broke my heart. Fed Up,  a new movie produced by Katie Couric and Laurie David (producer of the Oscar-winning documentary "An Inconvenient Truth"), aims to finally tell the truth about our messed up food system and how it is linked to the obesity epidemic. In it, we learn that food company lobbyists … [Continue reading]
