With that in mind, we've rounded up 7 of our favorite eco-friendly time keepers for kids' rooms that you can get in time to turn back the hands of the clock. Decoy Lab's bamboo animal clocks keep track of time in green style, and they are available in an array of creatures from rabbits and hippos to fawns and hedgehogs (seen above). If your little one is an avid reader and lover of the written word, she'll dig these vintage book clocks which double as art and savvy decor.
