I simply can’t believe that this children’s furniture from
Room to Grow is made from 70% recycled paper.
Joining the ranks of eco-forward products, the Don Table and Chairs
comes to you in a flat pack and is 100% recyclable. Super sturdy once
assembled (no tools needed), your children can busy themselves with
arts and crafts, and even safely have dinner on it – the waterproof
laminate will ensure spills and messes aren’t a problem.
The handy Storage Bench
is available in a
handsome geometric design which has quite taken my fancy, as well as a
cute critters print. Hide away all those loose toys without resorting
to an unimaginative plastic container which will take a million years
to biodegrade. A limited lifespan is a good thing when it comes
to the fickle world of children’s products. Let’s face it, we don’t
need child-sized furniture to last forever,
and neither does our planet.
Room to Grow has used a patented cardboard product by
with strict specifications that the product is fully foldable,
durable, has no unsightly cardboard edges showing, no tools required
for assembly, and is attractive and eco-friendly. It seems all those
have well and truly been ticked with an array of beautiful products to
choose from – storage units, bookcases and other types of
tables and chairs. This is one way of ensuring that the environmental
footprint we leave behind is lessened considerably – a challenge
many of us parents are taking very seriously as we consider the future
we and our children face.

The table and chairs are priced at a reasonable $90, with the storage bench at $50. It’s nice to see such a useful product available locally.
