As you may have read earlier this week I have discovered many great eco friendly products lately and I can’t wait to share them with you. Ever since finding out about the dangers of BPA and other scary materials that are used in the bowls, cups and bottles we use for our family every day I have only purchased safe alternatives and threw out the rest. It gets even better when those safe products are also super cute and biodegradable like these gorgeous Ecups from Buxton Baby.

Buxton Baby is a fantastic family business with Australian mum Pip selecting only the best green and eco friendly products for your family. In store you’ll find green finds for babies, kids, mums and even your household. The Ecups are a perfect example of Pip’s good taste, they are made of bamboo and at the end of their life they (normally) take about 12-18 months to decompose. How cool is that? The price is cool too, just $15.96 for a set of 6.

The moment I laid eyes on the Edulodo Shapes set ($44.95) from French brand Djeco I knew it: this would be a huge hit with the twins. They have already spent hours playing happily at the kitchen table, counting, placing, swapping and trying to copy the different images on each card. With 41 timber shapes, 45 cards and multiple levels of difficulty they will no doubt enjoy this kit for a long time to come.

To stay on the topic of toys I absolutely love the Plan Toys Butterfly Mirror. This would have to be the most affordable, fun, cute, durable and eco friendly gift you can find for a new baby. The body is made from eco friendly rubberwood and the wings can be removed for washing. Featuring bright colours and a mirror (easy entertainment for babies) you simply can’t go wrong with this friendly little toy (and priced at just $13.95 it won’t break the bank either).

While you are looking around in this gorgeous store don’t forget to check out one of their latest additions, the beautiful organic clothing range from Sapling Child.
