A family-based business based out of Portland, Maine, eco-kids started with a single, all-natural product. Cammie, the founder of eco-kids, drew upon her own childhood when creating eco-kids. Her mom created the original recipe that would later become eco-kids first product, eco-dough. Wanting to expand on this and create a non-toxic option for their own kids, Cammie and her husband, Kip, started experimenting. Using ingredients like non GMO flour, vitamin E and essential oils, they came up with a lightly scented, kid-friendly product! Using their own children; Jack, Maggie, and Gus as the product approval board, it truly is a family business! They have continued this imagine, create, kid-test process for all of their ideas which have led to them expanding to over 10 all-natural art supplies.

Creative play, the natural way

As a small family business, eco-kids is focused on creating in a way that's both earth and kid- friendly. Everything they make is created in the USA, in their hometown of Portland, Maine. eco-kids is taking big steps in the realm of sustainability. All of their products are made using ingredients that many of us could find in our pantry at home! From non-GMO flour, organic fruit extracts, and cream of tartar to FDA approved soy based inks, they're child-safe and parent-approved. Your kid will put things in their mouth, but eco-kids gives you the peace of mind to know that it's okay. They go a step further by packaging their products in an eco-friendly way as well. They use FDA certified paper, and print them in a wind-powered factory using soy-based inks. We love that they're taking the steps to reduce their footprint wherever they can!
