Help us design the next generation of beach toys

I would like your help in designing our first product for Zoë b Toys: The world's first biodegradable and compostable beach toy set.

But I haven't yet decided on the exact design, colors, or price. That's where you come in. I am hoping you'll take just a few minutes to fill out a 3-page survey. (it's all multiple choice, and not to worry, there are no wrong answers.) With your help, the set will be available for Summer 2011. Thank you for your time!

Safe Munch School Lunch Eco-Fundraiser

Each year we dutifully sign our little ones up try and raise money for a good cause. Wouldn't it be wonderful if this year, we not only did our part to raise money for the cause, but also were able to offer our friends, family and neighbors a way to help the environment by purchasing safe, affordable lunch gear instead of wrapping paper or cookies.

Safe Munch School Lunch Eco-Fundraiser has answered the call. This exciting new fundraising concept offers a nice range of BPA, PVC, Phthalate and Melamine-free lunch containers. All of which are reusable and waste-free which could enable the parents to pack a healthy school lunch for their precious little ones.
