Made from a cornstarch-based plastic, the hand teething rattle from Green Sprouts is non-toxic, biodegradable, compostable and free of BPA and PVC.

And, this teether gets two tiny thumbs up from Inhabitots founder Jill’s son.

Sophie the Giraffe
Last but not least, Sophie the Giraffe is a beloved, favorite green teething toy of babies and parents alike. This classic toy from French company, Vulli is made of 100% natural rubber from the Hevea tree and is colored with food paint. ’Sophie’ is excruciatingly cute and thoughtfully crafted. Her dark and light spotted body is designed for visual stimulation for baby’s developing vision. Her nubby horns and legs provide soothing relief for gums and satisfy the urge to chew while teething. The 100% natural rubber also gives her a pleasant distinct aroma. Sophie makes a little squeal when squeezed, which aids in the development of baby’s sense of hearing and her understanding of cause and effect.
