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 littleÂ sleepers are not only snug and stylish, but safe from harmful chemicals, too. Wahoo!
Price: Blanket, $49-$175 Duvet Cover, Â $114-$225 Available at: www.snugasabug-organic.com Â Â Â 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 theÂ young ones'Â mouthsâ€¦ and, well, don`t they always?
