I've decided to expand this blog to include some personal posts.  Not every post will focus on ecothriftiness, but I'll try to keep any new info I learn circulating through this blog.

Alex brand and Melissa and Doug

Melissa and Doug's Safety statement:
Additionally, we specifically test our paints and coatings very frequently, to be sure our toys meet or exceed government recommendations limiting heavy metals and lead in children’s items. We have cabinets full of thousands of passing test reports, and these passing results have been verified by 3rd party independently accredited testing laboratories, considered by many to be the best scientific laboratories in the world.

***However, check www.healthytoys.org!  Some of M & D still rank medium for toxic chemicals, while most are low.

Alex brand:
This is strange.  Although some of their toys/crafts are on the "Best" list, several are also on the "Worst" list.  Be sure to check it out before you buy it!
