“Artists have been using fruit, vegetable, and herb pigments to mix paint since ancient times. Glob channels that age-old method with vibrant paints that yield bright and beautiful colors when mixed with water.” Watercolor paints and non-nano face paint.

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.

Lots of nontoxic art supplies though, all in one place.
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.

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.”
