We think a green company is one that not only strives for sustainability but takes a step beyond to try and create positive change. As a company founded by an environmental scientist, it makes sense that Green Kid Crafts is committed to ensuring that all of their activities, from process to product, have as little an impact on the environment as possible. Further, they view their work as a way to foster the next generation of environmental stewards by engaging kids with nature in positive, creative ways.
Their boxes are 100% recycled and they minimize packaging and printing and use recycled materials. All of their science and art kits are bundled in special bags made of 100% recycled materials. To further their goal of raising the next generation of environmental leaders, they integrate sustainability into all of their monthly educational boxes box themes as much as possible. Past monthly themes include Green Energy, Planet Protector, Endangered Species, Backyard Science Feathered Friends and Rainforest Science.
