About Green Kid Crafts
Green Kid Crafts is a green company that provides creative activities to do with kids through our craft kit subscription service and eco friendly art boxes. With Green Kid Crafts, both parents and kids can enjoy sustainable crafts and activities that spark creativity, build confidence and cultivate respect and love for the environment.
We are proud to be a mom and woman owned business. Like so many of the best children’s products, Green Kid Crafts is a mother’s invention, created by a working mom who wanted to make the most out of the limited time she had to spend with her kids. Like many other parents, she wanted to spend that time connecting with her kids, not scrambling for ideas and shopping for supplies. That’s where Green Kid Crafts comes in.
Kid tested and parent approved, every project you receive bears the stamp of approval from our panel of experts, who ensure that our products are engaging, creative, and fun and also align with our Happy & Healthy Child principles.
What is a Green Company?
We believe that a green company is one that not only strives
for sustainability but takes a step beyond to try and create positive change. As a company founded by an
environmental scientist, it’s only natural that Green Kid Crafts is committed
to ensuring that all of our activities, from product to process, have as little
an impact on the environment as possible. Further, we view our work as a way to
foster the next generation of environmental stewards by engaging kids with
nature in positive, creative ways.
We use only safe, sustainable materials to create our
products and have been certified carbon neutral and Green America Approved. Green Kid Crafts is also proud to be a member
of 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate a portion of every sale to
environmental charities. +More...
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
In addition to protecting and giving back to the
environment, Green Kid Crafts believes in giving back to the community as well.
We work with local chapters of the Boys and Girls Club to bring craft activities
to underserved areas and provide mentorship to fellow women entrepreneurs. We
were honored to receive Green America’s People & Planet Award in
2012 for these and other good works. +More...
Meet our CEO & Founder, Penny Bauder

for a convenient solution that would allow families to spend quality
time together enjoying fun activities that bring them closer to nature.
She started putting together kids craft kits for herself and her friends, and
soon enough word spread and she found herself immersed in the concept
full time and the Green Kid Crafts eco shop was born. |
