FSC certified materials (use of such timber meets environmental criteria). Here is the Greenpeace Good Wood guide which can be used when purchasing toys or other timber products.
Few of our toys have paint on them, but the ones that do are made with certified non toxic paints.Good Wood is timber grown in plantations or harvested from 'well managed' forests or recycled, reused or salvaged wood. Good wood enables consumers to continue using wood products without causing forest destruction.

i can't stand cheap plastic toys. 2 weeks after they leave the store they are broken and headed to landfill.
My DS has good quality, long lasting toys.
I boycott gloria geans, not only is there coffee bitter and disgusting, so is the fact that they run a "charity church" in the states that helps "cure homosexuality"
gloria geans: "bitter coffee for bitter people" lmao
I wont buy the large block of cadbury chocolate anymore. When they changed it to a cardboard packet they made most of them 50g lighter without making them cheaper. I think thats rude!
