1000s of Toxic Free Products & Websites
“Looking for the most safe, non-toxic and creative art supplies for kids? Here’s where you start!…We have a passion and commitment to sourcing non-toxic art supplies for children…a wide selection of art materials that are healthy for children, toddlers, families and the environment…biodegradable crayons made from soy (not petroleum), sketchbooks made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper (not virgin trees), pencils made from sustainably harvested wood and recycled newspapers (not dying forests), natural paints made from fruits & veggies, and more… “ They have crayons, chalk, clay and dough, colored pencils, paints, markers, rubber stamps and ink, paste and glue, and more. But read descriptions carefully and choose wisely. Their criteria is nontoxic OR eco-friendly, so scented pencils made from recycled newspapers qualify, but I don’t recommend the artificial fragrance. Lots of nontoxic art supplies though, all in one place.
Oil paints, watercolor paints, crayons, pastels, and kids’ paints. “Our paints are made exclusively with plant-based ingredients and mineral-based pigments, creating an earth-friendly and safe paint that won’t compromise your health, our planet or your artwork. Colors of Nature’s oil paints will dry to a smooth, hard and durable finish in less time than conventional oil paints.” Pigments are also sold separately.
This is basically a pillow website, but they also sell fabric by the yard, throws and bedcovers, pillow inserts, and floor cushions. “…made only from natural, non-toxic fabrics. Globally inspired throw pillows include ikats, suzanis, wax prints, organic cotton, vintage, batiks, indigo cloth and tie-dyes. The fabrics are woven only from natural, non-toxic fibers, using mostly ancient techniques and low impact dyes. A story, a person and a culture are behind every fiber. Most decorative pillow cover fabrics are woven on handlooms and the artisans are paid fair wages for their skills. Decorative pillow inserts are made with kapok fiber filling and organic cotton shells. Kapok fiber is natural, organic, pesticide free, non-allergenic, mold and mildew resistant, lightweight, odorless, silky, sustainable, washable and non-toxic. All inserts are made in the U.S.A.” And I have to mention colorful vintage sari parasols that are a must if you live in a sunny climate. This site is ALL about natural fiber fabrics and doing creative things with them.
I first found MoonSpoons in a handmade crafts store and bought one of their wooden tongs because I love the nature-inspired designs: stars, the moon, leaves, flowers and more. Their new line features designs based in architectural elements. Their spoons and other utensils are made in Kempton PA of solid cherry wood native to Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. They “finish” their utensils with a food grade mineral oil but spoons can also be purchased “unfinished”.
A large selection of wooden kitchen utensils for everyday use. “All products are MADE IN THE USA, with quality West Virginia hardwoods that, if taken care of, will serve your cooking needs for years to come. Spoons, measuring cups and spoons, forks, knives ,strainers, flippers, serving utensils, spreaders, stirrers, salad utensils, tongs, and much more. Good, sturdy, simple, useful designs.
Insect repellent made from organic ingredients, “field-tested to repel mosquitoes, ticks and biting insects for up to 4-8 hours YET FEELS LIKE YOU’RE WEARING NOTHING. We take a bold, citrus bouquet of lemongrass, citronella plus energizing peppermint then round it out with woody lavender and cedarwood notes to create a naturally-occurring insect repellent in a signature intoxicating scent. Yum.Not only does it create a Cloak of Invisibility against biting insects, but the witch hazel-based elixir also refreshes and purifies your skin in high heat and humidity. ”
“..the most eco-friendly, sustainable alternative to plastic bags. All our reusable bags are made in the USA, in San Francisco California. We use super soft organic cotton that is soft to the touch. These bags are super strong and can handle the heaviest items. It is generously large which allows you to carry a lot more items than a plastic bag can. Best of all, the handles will never break off and the bottom will never bust like a plastic bag.”
Ghee “unlike any other you will find on the market today. We take great care and consideration in the ingredient selection and preparation method.” Small batches cooked over an open flame, produced in a peaceful and mantra-infused kitchen, made under the influence of the bright and waxing moon to amplify the elemental healing qualities and taste of ghee. “We make our ghee from the unique dairy of Northern California. The native wildflowers and sweet grasses of the coastal prairie provide a terroir unlike any other part of America. We are committed to sourcing our dairy from the grass fed and pastured cows of this region. We produce each and every month to highlight the changes in pasture as reflected in the cows diet and celebrate the seasonal changes in the butter and ultimately our ghee.”
Though the name sounds Hawaiian, this is actually an organic peach farm in Colorado, that brings the “aloha” tradition of putting their hearts into careful stewardship for good health of the land, life and water. They grow 14 varieties of organic peaches, which allows them to harvest continuously from late June through mid-September. They sell only Colorado-grown USDA certified organic fruit.
I’m old enough to remember paper straws from the days before everything began to be made of plastic. So I was delighted to see the revival of the paper straw on this website. “ They’re Safe And FDA Food Grade Compliant Approved. Aardvark® only uses materials that are non-toxic, BPA-free and ELEMENTAL chlorine free. In fact, many straws made overseas claim to use safe inks, but the colorants and the processes used to dry the inks are anything but safe. Aardvark® doesn’t use un-safe dyes or materials in our straws, and we have had independent, 3rd party testing done to prove it. We’re proud to say that Aardvark paper straws are the strongest, longest lasting on the market. All other paper straws on the market are made in China. But Aardvark straws are 100% Made in the USA — and they always have been. Ours is the original paper straw, based on a design patented by Marvin Stone in 1888. ”
