The Hug Report: Earth Day

Hey parents, caregivers, teachers, and anyone else who may have stumbled onto this first edition of The Hug Report! You may be asking yourself,

"What the heck is The Hug Report?"

Well, it's a weekly newsletter that we here at Hugalongs have decided to launch because there is so much parenting content out there.

We know you don't have time to read it all, but have a bit of FOMO when it comes to all the advice out there. We are here to curate the best parenting content from the week so you are the envy of all your parent friends... wink, wink.

But seriously, get some inspo for organizing your kids' rooms in the carline drop-off at preschool or have a laugh in the bathroom as you take a moment before your little one bursts in. We also find actionable advice for those moments when you need to handle some Big Feelings in between bites of a salad from Whole Foods. We got you!

Talk about a day that sneaks up on you. We have this cool video for kids that explains why Earth Day is important so you don't have to.



Our Earth Day Mantra:

"Today I will open my eyes to all the beauty around me."

Just take a look.
