Eco-Artware.com announces the expansion of their toy line to include Kenana Knit Toys created by Kenyan farmwomen in the village of Njoro http://www.eco-artware.com/catalog/toys.shtml.
“We are pleased to offer a line of toys that is imaginative, environmentally responsible, and improves living conditions for women artists who live in an economically depressed area.” says Eco-Artware.com owner, Reena Kazmann.
Profits from Kenana’s sales pays salaries for the workers and provides additional benefits including literacy programs, eye exams and eyeglasses, and health facilities. Because of the way in which they are produced and the resulting benefits, the line fits perfectly in the Eco-Artware philosophy, Kazmann says.
Eco-Artware.com also offers several soft toys which are handcrafted from recycled wool sweaters by a mutually supportive group of New England artists with special needs. The collection includes penguins, goslings, piglets and elephants; no two look exactly alike because the discarded sweaters come in varied shades.
The website based company promotes greener consumerism by offering only products made from recycled, reused, natural and biodegradable materials for all occasions and pocketbooks. Eco-Artware features a wide variety of items for men, women, home and office including bags and totes from discarded vinyl billboards, authentic sea glass jewelry, cuff links made from vintage typewriter keys, chairs made from retired aluminum road signs, business card cases from unusable motherboards and baby blankets which are machine woven from recycled cotton.
The company, which has been in operation since 1999, has grown as Kazmann has continued to locate new artists whose imaginative creations run from whimsical to utilitarian. For prices and a look at the full product line, visit http://www.eco-artware.com.
