Teens begin to question the eco-friendly morals of children’s movies once they realize that woodland creatures won’t flock to their homes to help them get ready for prom. Nurture a realistic passion for green living with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of eco-friendly kids’ clothing, toys, and gifts at Verde Kids in Webster Groves.
The earth-conscious shopkeepers at Verde Kids curate an eco-friendly inventory of organic apparel and toxin-free toys made from sustainable or recycled materials. Tuck tots into an organic sleeper ($32) woven from healthy natural fibers and panda daydreams, or let them cuddle with a soft Fuzz That Wuzz stuffed kitty ($19.98) stitched from recycled bottles. During waking hours, they can rummage through the pieces of a recycled dinosaur puzzle ($30) or pretend-crash a set of racecars ($6) engineered from sustainable bamboo. Babies’ emerging teeth can safely sink into organic bunny teethers ($14 each) without ingesting toxins or risking a lawsuit from angry rabbit parents.
Green culture permeates Verde Kids’ shop, where customers step across sustainable bamboo floors and pay for their purchases at a counter built from reclaimed barn beams. The friendly staff wraps gifts in recycled bags and paper, recycles old shipping boxes, and awards every thousandth customer one sapling to plant on the unfortunately barren moon.
