Start ’Em Young with Wholesale Earth Day Products for Kids

Get the younger generation involved with helping the environment.

I know the green trend seems to have just caught steam within the last few years, but I feel like treating the planet well has been around for a lot longer. When I was a sprout, my elementary school celebrated Earth Day, April 22, by planting trees out front and sending each child home with a pine sapling. I eagerly planted them on my grandmother's land, and today, one of those little saplings is fifteen feet tall.

I gathered up books on environmentally friendly stuff kids could do, and I pieced together seed mosaics and houses for blue birds, scheduled creek cleanups with the kids in my grandmother's neighborhood and created a compost pile. One week of the summer, I trotted off to nature camp, where more bird houses were assembled and we learned about the animals in my area and ways to be nice to the planet.

All of those experiences make me think twice before I get lazy about recycling or do anything else that might hurt the environment around me. I'm hopeful that kids in elementary schools still celebrate Earth Day and are still being taught to take care of Mother Nature and its inhabitants.

If you're looking for wholesale Earth Day products that are great for kids, we have a few to choose from, and they each contain information on how to keep the environment green. I like these educational promotional products because they remind me of the books I pored over as a child, and starting good, eco-friendly habits early can make a big difference.

This Earth Day coloring book and activity book, "Keep Our Environment Clean," would be a great handout for students on Earth Day, April 22. The Earth Day coloring book features pictures and messages that teach kids about taking care of the Earth. The colorful cover can be customized with your logo, and the Earth Day coloring book is currently on sale, so you can get 150 for under $1 each, and 500 for $0.58 each, including your one-color imprint.

If you want to start the kids off really young with environmentally friendliness, consider a growth chart gone green. The growth chart measures a child's height but also offers advice about keeping the planet clean. The tips include planting trees, keeping litter where it belongs and recycling. Like the Earth Day coloring book, the growth chart is on sale, too, and you can purchase 500 wholesale growth charts for $0.53 each, with a nice large space for your logo at the top.

Finally, I chose something that might be best for a kid who's a little bit older: this wholesale pocket guide on living green. It offers a nice big spot for a logo and goes more in-depth than the Earth Day coloring book or the growth chart, with tips on eco-friendly cleaning products, reducing paper use and green grocery shopping. This pocket guide would work great for adult promotions, as well, but it could also be used to help educate the high school crowd on green practices.
