Eco Kids began in 2008 in Maine by its founders Kip and Cammie Weeks. Their first product was Eco-dough, a natural nontoxic alternative to Playdough. Over the next few years they expanded to include several more natural, eco-friendly creative tools and art supplies for kids.
Eco Kids was purchased in late 2019 by Roxanne Quimby, the co-founder of Burt’s Bees. Roxanne has continued to grow the product selection with its original motto “creative play the natural way” at the heart of the company. She recently developed a line of natural, sustainable art supplies for teens and adults called Elseware to encourage people of all ages to create!
The company has since moved its operations to Raleigh, NC where the majority of their products are currently made.
