Eco For Kids

This past weekend I was able to visit the New York International Gift Show and had a great time.  What stood out for me were the many eco-friendly children's products.  Inhabitots did a nice job showcasing the different companies striving to make a difference in the gift world on their blog recently.

I loved the featured products by Cate & Levi because of their vibrant colors and unique designs.  It turns out that these lovable creature are made from American Apparel fabric scraps and filled with stuffing made with recycled bottles. 

The other company that stood out was Melange.  These super cuties are hand-woven by women cooperatives in Peru and the company follows Fair Trade standards, which is always important to remember when importing any products.
