As moms, we all want to be eco-friendly but wooo that stuff is expensive! So we tested out a bunch to get the real scoop. Here are our favorite eco-friendly toys that just may be worth the green.
These are a great investment and so fun. Tegu is a company based in Honduras that employs local workers and pays them a living wage. So the price of the products goes towards this cause, which we can all agree is a good one.
Non-toxic art supplies, handmade with natural and organic fruit, plant and vegetable extracts. About the company: Eco-kids is a family run business that makes natural art products. The mantra is “creative play the natural way” and works with many other environmentally-friendly companies to fulfill their orders. This smells so much better than regular playdough.
These are made from recycled milk jugs. They’re super durable, easy to clean, and dishwasher safe!
Inspires open-ended play. Ecologically made of natural, unvarnished wood, and non-toxic colors.
All kids love cutting wooden fruit toys. Something about the natural wood and something about the velcro when they cut into it makes them giggle every time! This company has developed key processes to reduce waste in their packaging and cut down on byproducts.
This is a little expensive but it’s made from rubberwood so it’s super durable. Note that it’s a little difficult to put together. The dolls are so cute and their legs turn so they can sit or stand.
Adorable and is made with wood sourced from environmentally sustainable forests. Durable, child-safe paint finish. Good for ages 1-2.
Non-toxic crayons made out of beeswax. These are a good alternative since crayons are non-biodegradable, but they’re on the expensive side for a box of crayons. They make great gifts! They’re thick which is great for little hands.
These all make great gifts and are a great way to give a little love to our green earth!
