Ethical Gifts for Toddlers
Making a conscious decision to buy ethically made gifts sets a good example for our toddlers to follow. As adults and parents, we are responsible for teaching environmental awareness to our kids so that they can have a brighter future. Even as simple as gift giving can pave the way for wonderful teaching opportunities on how to live sustainably.
Ethical Presents for Toddlers
There are so many things to consider when buying ethical gifts. For example, not all plastic free products are ethically made. Some of these products are from companies that use outsourced labor from impoverished regions with very lenient to non-existent labor laws. It’s important to do some research on a company’s environmental track record before making a purchase. But for those who do not have time to do some research, don’t worry. We’ve got your covered with our ethical gift giving guide.
As advocates of sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle, we carefully selected a range of fantastic toys that are ethically made using responsibly sourced materials. Our range includes toys made from recycled plastic bottles, wood, organic cotton and more. We made sure to only select toys that conform to European and international safety standards on kids’ toys to ensure that you are buying a gift that is 100% safe.
We also have a wide selection of insulated lunch bags, reusable water bottles, eco-friendly food wraps and more. Whether you are looking for high quality toys or items for a greener lifestyle, we have an amazing range of ethical gifts for toddlers.
Ethically made toys for fun and imaginative play
Each toy in our collection has been chosen for their play value as well as proven environmental track record of its toymaker. These toys provide hours upon hours of fun imaginative open-ended play. They have a simple design and are powerful early learning tools. They help your child develop a variety of skills they need for when they grow up.
We particularly love toymakers like Green Toys, Grimms and Indigo Jamm for their commitment to providing high quality eco-friendly toys.
Green Toys is a California based toymaker making eco-friendly toys from recycled milk bottles. California is one of the states in the US that has strict environmental and labor laws so you are guaranteed that each Green Toy you purchased is ethically made. Their toys come in recyclable cardboard, further reducing plastic waste.
Grimms, known for iconic rainbow coloured wooden toys, makes toys that are equal parts fun and developmental. Their toys are designed to spark your toddler’s imagination and creative thinking. They make wooden stacking and balancing toys that are great in developing your toddler’s hand eye coordination and fine motor skills.
Then there’s Indigo Jamm, a popular UK toymaker. Their toys have a unique retro vibe and design to them that appeal to both parents and toddlers. These toys are made from responsibly sourced rubberwood and finished with non-toxic dyes.
Reusable Gifts for Toddlers
If you are looking to buy a gift for toddler that is not a toy, we recommend our selection of reusable items like insulated lunch bags, reusable water bottles, food containers and food wraps instead. Our range of lunch bags, food wraps and stainless steel food containers allows toddlers to enjoy home cooked meals and waste free snacks while our reusable water bottles, stainless steel and collapsible ones, will let your toddlers stay hydrated in style.
