This is a brand new line of Eco Plant Pals, a fun collection that sets new trends in the world of gardening! Plants form an integral part of our environment and have an immense impact on human civilization. Teaching children about the flora that abounds throughout the planet provides wonder from the natural world, instills curiosity about the intricacies of life, and nurtures the beginnings of an ecological consciousness. One of the best ways to teach kids involves them not even knowing that they are learning. The first friends only need water and sunshine and come self-contained in their own eco-friendly kit! The Eco Plant Pals are the collectable, tradable, pets that will amuse children of all ages. Each kit comes with everything your little gardener will need to fully enjoy Eco Plant Pal. The planters come made from corn-based plastic that is biodegradable and renewable. There are 18 different styles of Eco Plant Pals, each with its own trading card and decal! Different types of Pals come with names that reflect their unique personalities. Plants benefit their surroundings and humans in many ways. They make breathing possible by producing all the oxygen in the atmosphere and the soil is enriched and cleaned by the root systems. Pollutants are “fixed” within plants as they absorb and clean the air around them. Besides adding beneficial humidity to indoor spaces, plants will provide much needed shade on those hot, scorching summer days. These benefits pale in comparison to the medicinal and culinary possibilities that plants provide. Styles include Aloe Alin, Basil Bob, Brian the Brain, Butterfly Beth, Carol Cactus, Chris Catnip, Damian Dragon, Fly Trap Fred, Laura Lobelia, Mary the Mover, Peter Pepper, Polka Dot Patty, Rainbow Rita, Robert Redwood, Sandy Sunflower, Shamrock Steve, Strawberry Sarah, and Tina Torenia. Each has its own fun story, facts about itself including useful growing information, and an eco-friendly terrarium!

How DuneCraft is a Green Company

DuneCraft’s goal is to create fun, exciting terrariums grown from seed that will last for years, and to further individuals' interest in plants and nature. The company uses packaging to most importantly convey a mood or feeling. The surrounding elements and background art evoke emotion. And learning. The company combines the positive elements of growing a plant with engaging themes like dragons, fairies, dinosaurs, outer space, and more in the terrariums. Most importantly, it gives young gardeners everything they need to insure a great result they will be proud of. DuneCraft's products are unique, exciting, and fun. The majority of products are made and assembled in the United States and are customer driven. The company conducts inspections of its factories to insure that all the materials are up to specification. The company quality tests at its facility, both when receiving materials and assembling product. It uses outside testing centers to test items for any heavy metals, toxicity, choking hazards, flammability, etc. It conducts both ASTM tests for the United States and CE testing for Europe. All the polymers and science items and any components in the growing kits are safe and made of non-toxic materials. It uses materials consisting of post-consumer content whenever possible. All corrugated materials used by DuneCraft assembly plants are recycled. By doing business in small-scale areas the company occupies as little space as possible, making as little of a negative impact as possible on the environment.
