Through my lastest addiction, Twitter, I ran across Green Lullaby (http://www.green-lullaby.com/) I loved the concept!! Not overpriced, earth and kid friendly? Where do I sign up? They have doll cradles, tables, boxes, and even real baby cradles all made out of cardboard!! Here, let’s have them tell you about their products!
Green Lullaby was founded by Ruth Kenan (designer, 39, Israel). She designed the first product – the Eco Cradle for her first born, and the idea of designing in cardboard that is both environmentally friendly, strong, light and foldable came up. It suitability for children became obvious: the limited durability (2-3 years) suits the ever-changing needs of a growing child’s environment, and the softness and innate shock absorbance make for a safer surroundings for the child. The foldability and lightweight, however, made it great for parents and grandparents. In Green Lullaby Ruth coupled with internationally renowned graphic designer Yonatan Factor, to create Green Lullaby’s unique look and feel – innovative trough both the use of the material and the perception of the objects, yet relating to the tradition of children’s toys and furniture. Green Lullaby’s products are produced in Israel, in a fair-trade factory. The products are made from material that is over 60% recycled and are completely recyclable. Also, because cardboard is biodegradable – these products are as green as can be. All the additives are water-based and non-toxic.
At the moment the Green Lullaby range includes the Eco Cradle, Benz Bench and Benz Table, dollhouse, Dollcradle and our Multiboxs. All these products comply with the relevant standards and are protected by Green Lullaby’s unique and completely non-toxic flame retardant.
I love the idea that little L can color and design her table and benches. I also love the idea that when she’s out grown or done with it I can recycle it rather than it taking up more space in the a landfil!
Green Lullaby, you get a big thumbs us from us!
