I am sure you have realized that both Belinda and I are seeking greener lifestyles for our growing families. One of the ways I was interested in “greening up” was my school supplies. That is why I was so excited to learn that we would get to partner with the Ultimate Green Store for our Back to School event! The Ultimate Green Store is one of the biggest retailers of eco-friendly and organic products. They have a huge selection of back-to-school products (including BPA-free lunchboxes and eco-backpacks) and baby and kids products as well as a wide variety of products for the home (including organic bedding and eco-kitchen products). I have been drooling over their selection of organic baby bedding ever since we found out we are expecting out 4th.
I was sent a box of Soybean Blend Crayons. Living up to their name, the package arrived in eco-friendly packaging.
You may be asking…WHY soy crayons?
“Unlike most crayons which are made from paraffin wax derived from petroleum, these crayons are made from sustainable U.S. agriculturally grown sources. Unlike paraffin wax crayons, these are completely biodegradeable and are also non-toxic. The colors produced are brighter than conventional crayons. The crayons glide smoother and flake less.”
I may be a grown-up, but there is still something so special about opening a new box of crayons.
My little reviewers choosing which crayon they will use first.
Our son’s final product!
Our 9 year old’s creation!
So what did my reviewers think?
“Mommy there is something different about these crayons, they are much less waxy.”
“I think these colors seem brighter somehow.”
“How did you find eco-friendly crayons and what makes them eco-friendly?”
“Can we always use these from now on?”
“Who gets this box for school or are you going to buy us more of these so we can all have our own?”
Bottom line: All three kids give two thumbs way up!
