NOTE FROM CHRISTA: Before these toys arrived, I thought, “Okay, organic is definitely safe for my grandgirls and their universe. BUT…are they going to feel like corn husks? I opened the box and found these two these characters-Baby Fred and Baby Andi- staring back at me. Adorable. And plush. My goodness, I could carry these little dumplings around myself. I know, I know. I promise I’m turning them over to the girls! Oh…and they arrive in recycled packaging [of course] that really CAN be recycled…a neat box for all sorts of treasures!
miYim aims to enrich the lives of today’s families by fostering the imaginations of children and celebrating the lifestyle of the eco-conscious home.
miYim is more than just playthings – they aim to teach values and environmental responsibility, all while touching the hearts of children through imagination and whimsy. Starting with organic food, the organic movement has grown from its small beginnings into a large movement fuelled by people’s desire to lead a healthier lifestyle. At miYim, they are taking this idea and applying it to our most precious resource of all, our children.
Go ahead and do your part – your planet will thank you…Going organic helps to keep chemicals out of the air, water, soil, and most importantly – our bodies.
One third of the world’s pesticides are used on cotton crops alone. These chemicals are absorbed into the cotton plant, the air, the soil, the water and eventually, our bodies. These harmful toxins also make their way back into our food chain – the cotton seeds are used to feed the cattle we get our milk and beef from, and also used to make cotton seed oil, a cornerstone of the processed foods most families eat every day; and it’s just not bad for the planet; 20,000 deaths occur each year from pesticide poisoning in developing countries, many of these from cotton farming, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
miYim™ organic cotton toys are made with safety and sustainability in mind. Colored by nature and 100% certified Non-Toxic, our toys help to make your home a safe and chemical free environment for you and your child.
It’s All in the Ingredients!
The PureWaterWash™ process is the secret to creating our charming colors. Untreated cotton thread is woven into gently flowing fabric and brightened with nature’s own plants and minerals. The fabric is then hand dyed repeatedly in soy-water to set the color. As a result, each miYim™ toy has its own unique appearance and color variance.
