GlyphGuy has received the “Best Green Product” Award from Dr. Toy for the Chipmunk Backpack. The Chipmunk was designed especially for kids between the ages of 3 and 7. Out of thousands of children’s toys, the Best Green Product Award was given to only 38 products this year.
GlyphGuy’s Chipmunk backpack is not a school pack, rather it was designed to further a child’s enjoyment of the outdoors by being sized for smaller bodies. The Chipmunk is intended for day use, and can hold a light jacket, a beverage, a sandwich, while still leaving room for a small book, hat, and even a teddy bear. Reflective fabric is included for safety.
Organizations as the Appalachian Nature Conservancy, the National Parks Junior Ranger Program along with select nature centers, park stores, independent outdoor retailers and family-run toy stores have recognized the value of GlyphGuy’s well-made backpacks. The Best Green Product Award further solidifies our leadership position in helping children and families to explore the outdoors.
About the Award
For the fourth year Stevanne Auerbach, PhD/ Dr. Toy recognizes the Best Green Toys and Children’s products and the Best Green Toy Company. She provides attention to the kinds of innovative products and companies that are working towards making a difference in playthings and reducing the impact of production.
The award-winning Green products are made by companies striving to inspire children to appreciate the environment and help them learn to take better care of our natural resources. These companies are making products to teach children more about our planet or producing playthings that are based on Green principles. These are excellent examples of playthings that are made safely, are healthy to use and have plenty of other special values.
These green products constitute a small number among all the choices of play products available, but we need to start somewhere. As awareness grows more families are thinking and considering new directions that are safer, more balanced and healthier.
