Parents Magazine Debuts First Annual Green Picks List

NEW YORK, March 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Meredith Corporation's (NYSE: MDP) Parents released this year's first annual Green Picks, a selection of over 50 products designated earth-friendly by our team of editors and experts across multiple categories, from cleaning and beauty products to clothing, food, travel and more. Parents' Green Picks 2020 of best products is available here and Parents' Green Picks 2020 of best cleaning products is available here. The Green Picks 2020 are also featured in the April issue of Parents magazine, available now.

"The April issue of Parents celebrates the original mom, Mother Earth," says editor in chief Julia Edelstein. "We know that parents today are passionate about sustainably made products that will help them live greener, but finding brands that live up to the hype isn't easy. Working alongside eco-experts and dozens of parent testers, we reviewed hundreds of items across all categories of family life to land on the 56 in this issue."

Parents editors and experts searched for formulas free of questionable ingredients, such as parabens, formaldehydes or phthalates. They looked for products with organic, natural or non-GMO ingredients and for things families can reuse and packaging that can be recycled. All products are carefully reviewed with families of young children in mind.
