Eco Friendly Paint for Kids

Glob makes eco friendly and fun paints for kids.

Botanically crafted arts and crafts paints made from fruits, vegetables, flowers and spices with natural food-grade ingredients. GLOB’s organic extracts smell fresh & fruity. The vibrant pigments in GLOB™ have been used by different cultures throughout the ages in food, artists’ paints and body products.

Most kid paints are made from petrochemicals, the chemicals used to make the pigments are labeled non-toxic even though they have never been tested.  Glob paints are made from all natural and organic extracts, to make paint that is truly safe.

Green Toys New Recycling Truck

This is just too cute!  Green Toys has done it again.

This  eco friendly  toy recycling truck is green from the ground up!  Made from recycled milk cartons in the US.  Green Toys are the safest toys you can buy.   Even the packaging is designed with to be minimal and totally recyclable.

But even better the toys themselves are FUN.

Cardboard packaging cleverly includes images of bottles, cans, and newspaper bundles you can cut out. Instructions let you know to put those “recyclables” into the side recycle chutes, then remove them after opening the rear door of the recycling bed. Hey, you’re recycling!

We love it
