There are plenty of green companies out there for kids, if you’ve got loads of cash to spend. It actually makes sense that eco-friendly companies are more expensive, because it really does cost more to produce green and ethical goods. However, not all families can afford to spend more for green toys or other products, meaning some families (and kids) lose big time when it comes to safe, eco-friendly products, and that’s a huge bummer. Luckily, there are a few green companies that understand that green families have different sized budgets – for example, Artterro. Artterro creates amazing eco-friendly and safe art kits for kids that won’t break the bank, yet all of their kits are high quality. This is a company that makes green living affordable for everyone, and right now you have the chance to pledge some money Artterro in order to help them grow to the next level, so that they can keep right on doing what they do best. Keep reading to learn more about why you absolutely want to help this company become a bigger success.
How You Can Help
Right now, Artterro is holding a Kickstarter campaign. Kickstarter works by taking pledges for a company who’d like to grow their operation. If the company gains enough pledges by a specific date, they earn the pledge money. If they fail to bring in enough pledges, no one who pledged money is charged. Artterro’s goal is to earn $30,000 in pledges by Earth Day 2012. However, Artterro is not the only one who benefits from your pledges. Anyone who pledges earns some wonderful prize rewards, as you’ll see if you keep reading.
What You Get if You Pledge
Artterro has put together some amazing packages for folks who pledge money to their Kickstarter campaign. For example, if you pledge $49 you’ll receive a wonderful art package including a Creativity Kit, a Wire & Bead Kit and an Art Journal Kit, US shipping included (a $63 value). If you pledge $99 you’re child will get a Creativity Kit, Bookmaking Kit, Wire & Bead Kit, Art Dolls Kit, Wool Felt Bug Kit, and a Paint with Wool Kit – all in all, enough materials for MANY hours of creativity and a $135 value. The rewards get cooler and cooler as you pledge more money, all the way up to a stunning 20 art kit + 10 art journal collection or an Artterro hosted art party for 21 kids at your own house, complete with art supplies, project ideas, organic snacks and dessert, and a kit and art journal for each of your guests to take home (parties must be within 2 hours of Madison, WI). No matter what you pledge, you’ll gain a great reward at a lower cost than what you’d pay retail.
Why Should You Pledge?
Times are tight, so pledging to a company may not be something you’d consider. Still, beyond the art kit rewards you’ll get, there are other plenty of other good reasons to pledge to this company, such as…
- All of Artterro’s art kits are sustainable and ethical.
- Artterro offers unique and safe goodies you won’t find elsewhere. For example, the recent non-toxic play jewelry post here at Inhabitots was somewhat of a nightmare, because very few companies offer non-toxic play jewelry for kids. Artterro does though, along with many other creative choices for kids like garden art kits, adorable wool felt bug kits, bookmaking kits, bubble wand kits and more.
- Artterro gives back to the community and the planet.
- Artterro doesn’t make green art kits for wealthy kids, but all kids. With low prices for safe products, Artterro makes going green a viable option for all families.
Remember – Artterro only receives funding and you only get charged if they reach their $30,000 goal by Earth Day 2012. So please pledge today to help this awesome green company thrive.
