Choosing baby toys, like any product, means knowing what it’s made of before it goes in your babies hands (and soon after in his or her mouth.) It should be safe, healthy, and if possible, help us preserve our planet. We want the very best for our children, unfortunately most of the baby toys on shelves are made of dangerous plastics. Although manufacturers promise us they are free of harmful substances we cannot help but remember that even some of the best ones have been proven to contain possibly hazardous structural, coloring or coating components. Now, does that mean that the alternative is the old-style wooden toy? No, there are some bioplastic lines doing supercool innovative things in the toy world. Like Green Toys and Bioserie, a cutting-edge company researching and developing revolutionary ways to use bioplastics in consumer products that’s currently launching a line of 100% bio-based baby toys.
Check it out;
Bioserie has developed its own unique blend of biodegradable, compostable and environmentally friendly components derived from annually renewable plants and natural resources such as plant sugars. 100% made of plants. 100% safe. You can rest insured bioserie products are free of BPA, PVC, Phthalates and heavy metals. Bioserie already used this blend to produce a couple of lines of smartphone covers that achieved 100% bio-based certification by USDA’s BioPreferred program and got nominated for bioplastics innovation awards in Germany and USA in 2013. So this is a proven program of safe plastics. Let’s support Bioserie’s campaign on indiegogo.com and/or pre-order on their website. For now, they have on offer a stacker, a rattle, a star-shaped teether and a three piece cutlery set (inclusive of an intriguing fork-splitter combination).
Let’s run down the specifics again on this brand:
