Did you know, that some conservationists estimate that at least ONE MILLION animals die in the United States annually from plastic related issues? Just let that number sink in – ONE MILLION animals die because of plastic. While, apparently the fish that are killed in the wild each year is a lot higher. Let’s take it a step further and say, that around 500 billion plastic bags go into circulation each year. Sit there and consider that for a moment! I mean, it literally just breaks my heart.

Being Holistic Minded, and while putting together my baby shower gift registry I realized all toys are not created equal. My interest in soft-toys was specific as that is what my baby would be playing with, more so than harder ones, when he was born. I also knew that the soft-toys were going to be spending a lot of time in my Little One’s mouth once he started teething!
