One of my favorite things to do in the Spring is dye Easter eggs! Yet, in the last few years, I have become increasingly uncomfortable using the painfully artificial dyes available to us in grocery stores. Especially since we boil our eggs with hopes of eating them later. I have had to throw away far too many eggs that have cracked, revealing neon colors on the flesh of the egg.
Eco-kids is a lovely United States based company, created by parents that wanted to create non-toxic, natural materials for their children that inspired creativity. Mission accomplished! After starting out selling handmade art supplies at farmers markets, eco-kids has grown and become one of our favorite wholesalers.
