The 2019 spotlight is firmly on Eco friendly products so we decided to put together a little guide to try and help navigate the sea of plastic products. We are only just starting to see the devastating effect of the plastic boom we have created over the passed 50 years. It’s shocking reading articles educating us on how long most of these plastics take to degrade, some items over 200 years.
We have made a concerted effort where possible to start using Eco friendly materials in our products and packaging. We care about the environment and are making conscious efforts to reduce our plastic use, and recycle where possible.
We have put together a quick Eco friendly gift guild for some great ethically sourced, organic, non toxic gifts from some super small brands. (Not just our products!)
These are organic cotton handmade rattles, Crocheted from organic soft cotton yarn then filled with ethically sourced wool.
The rattle has a ‘parent friendly’ sounding rattle inside. This adorable rattle will be great for teething babies and toddlers. Its bright colours, soft touch and rattle are great stimulant to help develop your babies motor skills. Fully washable, and chill in the refrigerator when damp to soothe sore gums. They also make great photo props!
Fairytale time just got real with this pretty Liberty fabric wand. You can even buy a matching crown. Thoughtful sustainable gifts made with 100% cotton fabric, and Beech wooden stems this biodegradable gift is Eco friendly and pretty cool. You can even choose a hand embroidered initial. Handmade in the Uk by Helen at The Little Red Fox. Each wand is finished with soft satin ribbons that help sprinkle magic as its waved around in the air.
This beautiful wooden stacking toy is a stylish Eco friendly gift. It’s a learning toy where little fingers will familiarise themselves with the texture of the wood and build and re-build the tower of rings. It’s a super sustainable gift made by Happy Little Folk Shop, and coated in a non toxic paint.
Who doesn’t want a portable wooden house, made from sustainable Birch wood and fastened with a vegan leather handle? Olli Ella have done it again making this gorgeous Eco friendly gift for little people, something that can be enjoyed for a long time.
