Wee Generation Diaper Bag & Seventh Generation Giveaway! (Contest over)

You know that feeling you get when you see your favorite band walk onto stage or when you hear really great news? Well, that's the feeling I had when I read all about the Wee Generation Diaper Bag recently introduced to the world. Wee Generation is a collaboration of Healthy Child Healthy World, Rickshaw Bagworks and Seventh Generation. What they have accomplished with this project is truly extraordinary.

I originally heard about Healthy Child Healthy World when my son was very little. While I have always been interested in the healthier things in life, having a child seemed to tweak the way I looked at everything - especially the world around him. There was suddenly SO much more to think about. HCHW views the world the same way I do, and they have become an important resource for me when I need some advice. They are solely dedicated to providing a more healthy world for the children who inhabit it through education and action. It's no wonder that they collaborated with like-minded companies to create one smart, safe & good-looking diaper bag.

Every parent knows the importance of having a highly practical, comfortable and stylish diaper bag to carry the MANY items little babies require. It is not as easy as it seems to find the perfect combination of all of these traits - trust me, I know. I have resorted to choosing fashion over practicality lately. I won't be seen with anything that looks too much like a diaper bag - and I live with the consequences (which come in the form of me hunting for a pacifier for 5 minutes.) I know, I know - not brilliant, but sometimes I do choose form over function. With this Wee Generation diaper bag now on the market, parents no longer have to choose one thing over another.

Wee Generation wants something better for parents and they have delivered it in a big way. After calling in some huge names in design, like IDEO and "green" architect William McDonough, they have successfully created a truly earth-friendly and parent-friendly bag. The most important feature of this bag is that it's the first bag of it's kind to seek out "Cradle-to-Cradle" certification. In short, that means that every single element of this bag is used from a recycled material and, at the end of it's life, can be recycled into something else instead of being dumped in a landfill. Pretty cool, eh? As if that wasn't enough, Wee Generation is donating 100% (yes, that's right) of the profits to Healthy Child Healthy World to help make our world a safer place for our kids. There's so much more to this bag, and you can check it all out here. We hope you're as impressed as we are.
