Recent Acquisitions

We picked up a few new eating implements for Huxley recently, as his robust appetite had been resulting in a shortage of clean bowls and plates at the ready. Green Toys recently launched a new line called Green Eats. Our local natural home supply store, Nest, had a 4-pack of their plates for sale, all made from 100% recycled BPA-free plastic.

Green Toys makes some seriously fantastic products, including the race car and dump truck pictured alongside the plates, Nugget-warming and 1-year birthday gifts respectively for Huxley from some loving friends. They’re incredibly durable (perfect for an active toddler with tiny fists and biceps of steel-I tell ya, the little guy is STRONG!), come in a variety of eye-pleasing colors, and support a small business doing a good thing. I’m a fan, all around.

Also at Nest, we found a Bambu toddler plate and spork. Bambu makes a line of beautiful, contemporary products for the home from an imminently renewable resource, bamboo. We use a number of their other items around the house, and always keep a travel spork with us, should a to-go meal requiring utensils suddenly occur.

I’m always interested in learning about great, sustainable kid’s companies. If you know of one that you’re particularly smitten with, I’d love to hear about it!
