Greengrub Toys, a firm based in Brisbane, Queensland Australia, is involved in the creation of beautiful, handmade wooden toys and bedroom décor for kids.
The products are not only of premium quality and child friendly, but also parent and planet friendly. Greengrub Toys’ product range is made from materials that do much less harm to the planet than similar products made with traditional materials. The range consists of organic products that meet criteria such as being made out of sustainable sources, renewable woods and recycled materials.
The team at Greengrub Toys is composed of woodworking artisans, who believe in hand-making all the toys and furniture accessories to order. The absence of any machines itself is an energy saving measure and creating just enough to meet the demand does away with waste and excess inventory. The team proudly states, “We make premium quality wooden toys and décor and have 20 years of woodworking experience.”
The entire product range is made from eco-friendly and sustainably farmed compressed bamboo. Each piece created by Greengrub Toys is unique as the bamboo grain is always slightly different each time.
After the products are properly hand carved, they are then finished with a non-toxic, plant based oil for protection. None of their products contain plastics or petro chemicals and the best eco friendly endeavour of this conscientious business is that their workshop is 100% solar powered and all waste sawdust is composted in the owners’ garden.
Greengrub Toys promotes sustainability and has pledged to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle to ensure their products are as environment friendly as possible.
Bamboo wooden toys are a fantastic alternative to plastic toys, not just because they are eco friendly but also because they have a beautiful texture and strength. Children have a natural affinity for all kinds of materials from nature. Bamboo toys inspire babies and kids to use their imaginations to the highest levels.
Greengrub Toys singularly relies on bamboo as their choice of wood, simply because bamboo is considered one of the fastest growing and most sustainable plants on Earth. It can grow up to 90 cm a day and can reach its full height in one growing season, which is typically 3-4 months. When bamboo is harvested between 3-7 years, new shoots appear and grow from the same root system.
Bamboo forests are self-renewing and harvesting can take place without damaging the bamboo forest. Apart from this bamboo is stronger than most hardwoods.
Bamboo forests can release 35% more oxygen than timber tree forests and have lower environmental impacts than harvesting hardwood with hardwood forests also taking decades to recover.
In addition to the very tasteful and interesting range of toys, Greengrub Toys is also involved in making name signs out of bamboo wood. These are perfect to add that unique and stylish touch to children’s rooms. These come with a natural rope too which is perfect for hanging them up.
Greengrub Toys also offers a chic décor range for kids. These bamboo wood bedroom accessories come imbued with touches of Australian flavour and are sure to create a cherished space and delightful atmosphere in your home just perfect for your children and you.
With the use of products from Greengrub Toys one is sure that not only will children will be introduced to sustainable living right from an early age but the experience with eco friendly products will only serve to help them choose such products time and again as they grow up.
Greengrub Toys does not sell its products from physical stores but prefers to market them exclusively from its online store.
