Finding the right gift for an upcoming baby shower is both ethical and easy with eco-friendly toys from Fair Indigo. Welcome new babies with soft plush animals to cuddle, or engage a budding ecological engineer with building blocks that are fairly made. Introduce the youngest of your family to socially responsible play with fair trade toys.
Find eco-friendly toys that are made for cuddling, such as the Joobles collection – a fun group of farm and jungle animals ready to comfort babies at nap time or accompany them on daytime adventures. These sweatshop-free, cooperatively made rattles, stuffed animals and accessories feature 100 percent organic tanguis cotton for luxurious softness. Buy a bunch for friends and grandchildren, knowing you're supporting Fair Indigo in giving back to those who need it most. Present a budding Picasso with art kits and journals from Strathmore, based in Madison, Wisconsin. The spiral-bound books provide pages for journaling, drawing and creating with a blank cover that's perfect for personalization. Go big and bold with ethical art kits from Artterro that provide everything little creators need, from buttons and beads to felt, sequins and wire, to let their imaginations take flight. For older children, inspire constructive fun with quality toys that include building blocks from Tegu. The sky's the limit – until you run out of blocks – with these wooden blocks made from Honduran hardwoods. Because the blocks are manufactured by a vertically integrated company, you can rest assured your gift is safe and eco-friendly. The blocks are easy to maintain and nontoxic.
Giving gifts that are fairly made through green processes is a gift in itself, passing your love of the environment and concern for its well-being on to future generations. Look to Fair Indigo for toys that fit every stage.
