Education.com Looks At Green Toys
Just in time for Earth Day (we’re just late to post it), Education.com has put together a nice round-up of fun, smart, and environmentally conscious toys and games out there for kids of all ages (pre-school through high school).
As they write, whether they’re produced by artisan cooperatives around the world, constructed out of sustainable or recycled materials, or locally-made to reduce the carbon footprint, each of these products is safe for your kids and the environment.
Our favourite just might be ImagiPLAY’s 3-D, handcrafted puzzle made from preservative-free rubberwood, one of the most environmentally sustainable hardwoods on the planet. Coloured with non-toxic paint. A portion of the profits from sales goes towards planting trees in the developing nations where they’re harvested.. Plus, the manufacturer has made ethical labor part of its mission by developing partnerships with small, family-run factories that pay workers a fair living wage. Yes, ImagiPLAY has some fun toys for the kiddies!
