Irvington, NY (PRWEB) June 21, 2007
The makers of Green Babies, the world's largest selection of certified organic cotton clothes for babies and kids, today announced the launch of their new, made in US wooden toy collection, Earth to Kid.
"For almost 14 years we've been making the finest organic cotton clothes for babies and children; now we wanted to pioneer another natural movement: woden toys," says Hossein Fassa, half of the husband and wife Green Babies team.
Earth to Kids toys are made in the United States of non-threatened hardwoods. The current collection includes heirloom quality baby rattles, building blocks, a school bus with removable people, and a train whistle. More toys are planned for the holidays.
"We felt a strong need for a safer, more natural toy. It just makes sense to be safe, not sorry, especially when it comes to babies and young children whose developing systems are more likely to be affected by any toxins," says Lynda Fassa, Green Babies founder, who conceived of the collection while doing research for her book, "Green Babies, Sage Moms" to be released by Penguin in Jan. 2008. "We don't want our children, or any children, to be at risk of chemical exposure when we're not sure of the long term effects."
Recent studies suggest plastic toys may leech a number of potentially dangerous chemicals, including phthalates, which are endocrine disruptors and possible human carcinogens.
Earth to Kid is available in most Whole Foods Market stores in Southern California, as well as the Whole Foods Market flagship store in Austin, Texas, and the Company's New York City Bowery and Houston store. For store locations, please visit http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com.
