At Kobu, we’ve crafted a responsibly made kids beach and garden toy set, made entirely from renewable, biodegradable, and pesticide-free bamboo!
Ever wonder what happens to children’s plastic toys that are accidentally left at the beach? Not much. Not for a very, very long time.
Beach toys are a very simple product, but almost all of them are still be made in ways that are really irresponsible towards the environment.
Cheap plastic beach toys are easy on your wallet – but they’re costly in terms of their environmental impact. Tons of them wind up in the oceans, and landfills, and that’s not even getting into all the other environmental externalities it took to make them from oil in the first place.
Kobu’s mission is to provide an eco-friendly alternative.
Bamboo is the fastest-growing woody plant in the world, capable of growing up to four feet a day. Most of it is grown organically in regions that can really use the income (ours is uncertified organic from Vietnam), and in most locations requires no irrigation, pesticides, or fertilizers. Because of its fast growth, good mechanical properties, low price and abundant availability, bamboo is a fantastic resource for sustainable manufacturing.
