We’ve been fans of Stubby Pencil Studio since we were turned onto the Portland company’s high-quality CIY for kids. That’s, um, Color It Yourself. And now we’re pleased to learn that the company has gone eco. (Of course; they’re in Portland.)
They’ve just added a whole category of green accessories, including soy crayons, colored pencils certified by forest friendly dot-orgs, and Smencils, those cotton candy and root beer scented colored pencils made totally from recycled newspapers. Plus the charming cards themselves are now all printed on recycled paper and eco-ized to the nth degree.
If your kids’ grandparents are anything like my kids’ grandparents, they’ll never throw those cards out. Ever. And that’s good for the earth too. -Liz
