Cammie and her husband Kip started selling eco-dough at a farmers market, and their venture led to a whole line of natural art supplies.
Lexington, MA (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
Eco-kids’ products were inspired by Cammie Weeks’ mother, who made homemade molding dough for her kids. A generation later, Cammie tweaked the family recipe so it’s 100% natural. Her eco-dough is a soft, malleable mixture that invites kids to squish, stretch, and give shape to their ideas. It’s made with plant, fruit and vegetable extracts (from beets, blueberries, carrots, spinach and more) that give the dough its vibrant, earthy colors. Essential oils keep the dough pliable and aromatic.
Cammie and her husband Kip started selling eco-dough at a farmers market, and their venture led to a whole line of natural art supplies. Inspired by rocks in the family garden, their eco-crayons are made using 25% beeswax and 75% plant, fruit and vegetable extracts. Natural extracts are also the main ingredients in the company’s eco-eggs coloring kit (which comes with three powder packs and instructions for creating custom colors) and eco-paint (a powder-based formula you can use with fingers or a paintbrush). All the products are made in Portland, Maine.
The couple’s three kids -- Jack, Maggie and Gus -- help make sure each new product is safe, fun, and ready for action. So set the kids loose with eco-kids’ art supplies and watch the creative sparks fly.
