After the winter holidays, it's a sure bet that toys underfoot will become a problem. From little LEGOs to blocks to crayons to puzzle pieces to dolls and more, rouge toys get in the way, trip families up and cause general mayhem. However, it doesn't have to be this way. The right sustainable toy storage solution can keep your home tidier and help encourage kiddos to pick up after themselves. See some of our favorite eco-friendly toy storage solutions below.

Bookcase Recto-verso by Nonjetable
The Nonjetable Bookcase Recto-verso is a lovely bookcase that won’t look out of place in your modern home. Made with whitened birch plywood with a secret artistic twist – the back panels are white surfaces that your child may draw on with felt-tip pens, then wipe clean with a cloth to start all over again. The bookcase is double sided, so it’ll work perfectly as storage and a great room divider for siblings. Beautiful enough to stand alone later on as an adult storage piece, this unit has tons of space and compartments for childrens’ smaller items as well. If you’re looking for a less costly solution that’s still modern and green check out the Nonjetable Suspended Bookcase.
