My kids are still in the “kids” cup age. Two seven year old’s, while wiser and seemingly more mature than most seven year old children, are still clumsy and fumbly as they maneuver their evolving bodies. The Tween of the house likes the plastic cups for the convenience, and quite frankly, he is a bit fumbly himself as he grows into a man-child. This year though I have been trying to eliminate more and more toxins and add eco-friendly products in our home. I think this is great for my family’s overall health and is invaluable for the lessons I am teaching my children regarding Earth friendly products that are sustainable and great for long term health. Great products are emerging that are as hardy and rugged as plastic such as bamboo, which is sustainable and eco-friendly.
On the heels of the new Star Wars movie release the folks at Vandor have an awesome line of eco-friendly drinkware and meal sets for kids and adults alike. Vandor has been making retro cool since 1957 by designing pop culture products that are fun and innovative. Vandor has products to make excellent gifts and stocking stuffers for the pop culture fan in your family.
I was so stoked to hear that Vandor has an entire line of eco-friendly bamboo drinkware and meal sets. The drinkware is by far my favorite since they have so many styles to choose from that brings out the inner child in any adult. From Marvel to Disney to My Little Pony to Star Wars the drinkware sets consist of four pieces of your favorite main characters from each genre. The cups sound and feel like a hardy plastic cup, but are sturdy, stylish and constructed of bamboo and cornstarch. The bamboo which functions like wood and a hard plastic, yet helps prevent further deforestation and petroleum usage often found in plastics.
These make great add-on gift items for those last minute gift ideas or to give the gift for the person who has everything. They clearly do not have these rocking bamboo Star Wars cups. For under $20 they are a great bargain gift idea and sure to fit any budget.
