THE EARTH FRIENDS
Can dolls be fabulous toys and environmental role models? Eco-entrepreneur Deborah Kettner is confident of it as she launches the innovative line of Earth Friendsâ„˘ dolls. In fact the dolls' mission statement is the biggest feature on the 100% recycled box: "Inspiring the children of today to care for the world of tomorrow." There are 9 Earth Friends to choose from, 3 boys and 6 girls, with a diverse selection of hair and skin tones. The dolls are made in the USA with every component made from either organic or recycled ingredients. The yarn hair is made from organic or recycled cotton. The fabric skin is made from the durable and renewable hemp fiber. Each doll is filled with soft stuffing spun from recycled plastic containers.
Each doll comes outfitted with a Hope Tree Planting Kitâ„˘ inside his or her backpack including tree seeds, a coconut coir pellet that expands when watered, and an instruction booklet. The idea is to give children a hands-on experience of Mother Nature. It reminds them about their Earth Friend's mission to help the planet. By planting a tree, children learn that they can actively participate in taking care of the earth and become Earth Friends too.
Kettner says â€ś When I think about all the possibilities for The Earth Friendsâ„˘ I feel inspired. The families of today are eager to be Earth Friends.â€ť The company strives to educate about the many ways people need to revolve back into earth friendly lifestyles and quickly strive to repair the damage being done to Mother Nature. Earth Friendly tips and activities can be found at the website: www.TheEarthFriends.com. Future plans include childrens books, trading cards, comic books and animation. Through storytelling and play The Earth Friendsâ„˘ will spread hope for the future one heart at a time.
The Earth Friendsâ„˘ partner with environmental and community organizations close to home and around the globe such as 1% for the Planet and Noyo Food Forest.
The Earth Friendsâ„˘ are available online at: www.TheEarth Friends.com, at local toy shops and eco-boutiques and at Whole Foods nationwide for Holiday 2008.
