Sustainable Products for Earth Day

Sustainable Products for Earth Day

Not sure if you heard but Earth Day will arrive on Thursday, April 22 this year. There is, after all, a lot going on in the world, and it may be hard to find the energy to care about sustainability when a global pandemic is dominating our collective attention. But today is a good reminder that being thoughtful about how we consume is as important as ever. Now is the time to support independent businesses that have been hit hard by COVID-19—especially those on a relentless pursuit to make the world a better place.

For the environment, the impacts of a global shutdown have cut both ways. Pollution has seen a decrease and emissions have been reduced in many big cities as planes stay grounded and cars parked. On the other hand, consumption is up—and an uptick in online shopping is contributing to an increase in excess packaging.

We can, however, make incremental changes to our shopping habits—say, switching from plastic wrap to beeswax wrap—to help minimize waste. And, with all this extra time, maybe this is the moment to eschew bagged carrots and realize that balcony container garden of your dreams. Here at Danna Bananas, the material used to package your purchases is either re-used packing material from our wholesalers or recycled shredded paper from our home/business. We re-use as many of the boxes we receive from our wholesalers as possible and recycle the rest.

Whether you’re looking for a sustainable game, reusable water bottle  or ethical shopping bag, we’ve got you covered. To help you shop more sustainably on this 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day, we’ve handpicked 50 good-for-you—and good-for-the-earth—products from independent business owners everywhere.

Pocket Fundomino Game

Pocket Fundomino Game

Pocket Fundomino is played with the basic rules of Dominoes but with curvy, s-shaped pieces and the numbers 1-6 instead of the traditional dots. You connect the pieces by matching the numbers and some of the pieces have an icon that provides a little more challenge. A plus sign directs one to pick an extra domino, a star is a wild card and a circular arrow allows another turn. The dominoes are colour coded, even children who have not yet mastered their number recognition may still join in the fun. All 32 tiles can be stored and transported in the easy zip pouch.

Crafted from sustainable wood, Blue Orange plants two trees for every tree used to produce their games. Fundomino requires matching and fitting pieces together for shape recognition, hand-eye coordination, color recognition and visual perception. It is also strategy intensive requiring players to anticipate the action and block opponents with the shape of the tiles. Fundomino is the best party game to gather family together for hours of fun. Make travel fun with Pocket Fundomino, our easy to travel pouch carries all the action you will need on all your adventures.
