Enjoy these Fun, Eco-Friendly, Earth-Conscious Activities with Your Kiddos this Earth Month
Last summer, White Lotus Home ran one of the most well received newsletter series we’ve ever shared with our community called “Do It 4 The Children”.
We received many emails and comments with such positive feedback from that campaign! And we also discovered that many folks here in our community are concerned about the world our children are growing up in – and the world we’ll be leaving to them.
WE HEAR YOU!
We are too, which is part of why we do what we do here at White Lotus Home. That’s why we can’t let this Earth Month pass by without including our kids. Perhaps one of the best things we can do for them is to teach them how to build green habits early!
So, without further ado, here are 6 fun ways you can instill consciousness and help young ones start building clean, green habits today:
Did you know that single-use plastic is one of the biggest pollutants found in the ocean? As an exercise to explore how to avoid these plastics, try packing a lunch using only reusable containers, utensils, and napkins, then take it to a local park or outdoor area. Your young one will see how single-use plastics can be avoided, and as an added bonus, you can pick up litter in the park when you’re finished!
If you grow up in an urban area, it can be hard to imagine what Earth looks like untouched by humans. Take your young one to a natural outdoor space, like a forest, open meadow, or nature preserve, and talk to them about the importance of keeping these natural habitats safe from harm or destruction.
As we mentioned in last week’s newsletter, many foods travel more than 1,000 miles before reaching your plate! That’s a lot of burnt fossil fuels! Take your young one to a local farm or a farmer's market to teach them about where their food comes from, and about the importance of buying locally grown food, or growing your own green goodness.
Take a garbage or grocery bag and go on a walk around your neighborhood to clean up any litter you see. You can talk about the importance of keeping our environment clean, and even make it a competition to see who can pick up the most trash!
There are lots of children’s books out now that encourage conscious living and care about the environment. Some of our favorites are The Great Kapok Tree, The Rainforest Grew All Around, and The Earth Book. Snuggle up with your favorite eco-friendly pillow or bean bag chair and enjoy these green books with your kiddo!
Choose a movie with an environmental message like Wall-E or The Lorax, and make some eco-friendly snacks to enjoy while you watch!
Remember, while Earth Day is a great opportunity to teach kids about the importance of protecting our planet and to help them establish eco-friendly habits, these activities can be done any day of the year!

What happens with your dollars when you do?
Dear WLH Community Member,
You might already be aware that Prime Day is coming up next week.
Before you shop all those Prime Day deals, as a member of our conscious community, we’d love for you to please think for a moment about where your dollars will go when you do. Here’s a quick look at Amazon’s stats:
Amazon bought Whole Foods four years ago, but we've been organic for FORTY!
White Lotus Home has been ahead of the Green game for decades, and we'd like to keep it that way!
With Prime Day on its way, we challenge you to take the Lotus Local Challenge and shop GREEN this week before Prime Day even starts!
Here’s what happens when you buy from a small sustainable ♻️ business instead of a billion-dollar megacorporation:
⭐ Small businesses like ours utilize other local small businesses like banks, service providers, and farms.
⭐ For every $100 you spend at local businesses, $68 will stay in the community! ( 1 ) Woo-Hoo!
⭐ Independent retailers return more than three times as much money per dollar of sales to the community in which they operate than chain competitors.
⭐ Supporting local businesses is good for the environment because they often have a smaller carbon footprint than larger companies.
Get a FREE (yes, free!) Travel Pillow with any order of $200 or more!
Get FREE Shipping to the contiguous USA and pay ONLY the difference in shipping to orders going to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, and abroad. ️

At White Lotus Home, we believe that women are an incredibly valuable asset to our society and our business.
In fact, we can’t celebrate our 40th Anniversary without giving major credit to all of the women who have led our company over the years!
Did you know?
💚 Our Vice President, Elizabeth Pando, was also born in 1981. (We won’t tell you how old she will be this year, but if you guessed 20, you are right!... times two 😉)
💚 Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd, and our owner’s mom’s birthday is the same day! She worked diligently at White Lotus Home until 2010. We still have her beautiful plants all over the showroom, and we continue to honor all she taught us before she left Mother Earth. While we celebrate our company’s 40th Anniversary, we will celebrate her legacy as well.
Our 40th Anniversary Earth Day Celebration Is Here!
Since 1981, we’ve done our best to offer competitive prices on green and organic mattresses, pillows, and bedding. However, the problem we hear all too often is that our customers want to choose 100% organic products but can not afford the up to 50% more in cost.
We hear you, we understand, and we want to help!
To celebrate our 40th Anniversary, we will give 40 lucky winners the opportunity to purchase any WLH Organic Bedding at our non-organic Green Product Prices. That means you could save up to 50% on the cost of any WLH 100% GOTS Certified Organic product!
Here’s how to enter…
Step 3: Tag all the friends you can! The more the merrier!
40 lucky winners will be chosen before this coming Earth Day, April 22nd, 2021. You can enter every day or as many times as you like until then to increase your chances of winning. 😁
We look forward to reading your posts and comments!
