Eco-Friendly Easter

Spring and Easter have arrived, bringing warmer weather, clearer skies and renewal. As the earth springs to life after a cold winter, why shouldn’t our families? Many families will take time to get together but most kids are looking forward to what the Easter Bunny brings.

Most Easter baskets are filled with trinkets, toys and treats. And keeping in that spirit we’ve compiled some great goodies that will excite the little ones while sparing them any harsh chemicals, materials or ingredients and make it the most eco-friendly Easter yet.

Occasionally, the Easter Bunny might place a toy or two in your child’s basket. Why not choose an eco-friendly product that’s safe.

Today all anaMalz are carefully crafted and hand painted using child friendly paints and materials, tested under EN71, ASTM, CPSIA accreditation.

Through creating quirky yet timeless products of the highest standard, the creators want to give everyone a chance to give back to nature, and that’s why for every anaMalz that finds a home, a percentage is being donated for preserving nature forever.
