Stylish Organic Cotton Bedding I wish I could find these eco-chic sheets in grown-up sizes. They`re made in B.C. with sustainable, fair trade cotton harvested in the USA and India. The bright colours and funky patterns are created with low-impact dyes and inks, so little sleepers are not only snug and stylish, but safe from harmful chemicals, too. Wahoo!

Price: Blanket, $49-$175 Duvet Cover,  $114-$225 Available at:       Building Blocks Aspiring architects and budding builders will delight in this 50-piece set of blocks, while parents will appreciate that they`re educational and eco-friendly. The blocks are made from 100% recycled and locally sourced maple that`s free of dangerous materials, so you won`t mind if some blocks end up in the young ones' mouths… and, well, don`t they always? blocks-lrg1

Tea Set by Green Toys A green twist on a classic toy, Green Toys' tea set is the eco answer to the perfect imaginary tea party. The 17-piece pastel-colour is made of HDPE plastic from (mainly) recycled milk containers, and is BPA- and phthalate-free, and safe to use with real (or imaginary!) liquids. teagroup teabox    


If tea isn't your child`s... bag, Green Toys also makes a green (not in colour) dining set, garden set and tool set.

Liz Clay Custom Portrait These fun, funky paintings -- on 16" x 16" mounted canvas -- are a one-of-a-kind way to commemorate someone special and immortalize an aspect of their childhood.

Using made-in-Canada paints and organic cotton hemp canvas stretched over local British Columbia wood, these portraits make a unique keepsake. liz-clay-custom-portrait Price: $350 Available at:
