Eco-Kids creates safe and effective children’s art materials that support the freedom of exploration, the joy of discovery, and the development of non-verbal, visual language.
Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your children will not be exposed to hazardous chemicals like phthalates, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or artificial pigments found in mass produced art supplies. Instead, many of their ingredients are edible, including thickeners made of rice and potato starch; pigments made of powdered fruit, vegetables and minerals, and binders made of (milk) gum Arabic and powdered eggs.
By offering many of their products in powdered form, they eliminate dependence on preservatives and the unnecessary expense of shipping water. Adding water at the point the product is used also allows them to package in paper and cardboard instead of plastic jars and bottles. We carefully evaluate the recycled content of their packaging in a committed effort to reduce the environmental footprint of the company.
Through the design and intention of eco-kids products, they aim to:
. Simplify children's toys.
. Remove gender/race biases from children's products.
. Create time and space for a child's inner journey.
. Emphasize the joy of discovery, imagination, creation and learning.
. Engage parents and caregivers in their children's playtime.
. Reduce screen time.
. Reduce/eliminate unsustainable ingredients, packaging and practices.
. Reduce plastic use.
