Organic Fruit Teether Toys

Denise George

It does take a village -- 13 villages to be exact -- to produce Under the Nile's "Veggin Out" collection of educational fruit and veggie teether toys. By bringing work to 13 of the poorest villages in rural Egypt, women are able to be at home with their children and make a living wage. The women from each village are taught how to make one of the fruit or veggie toys. Each village is then responsible for producing that toy and paid fair wages for their work. Under the Nile provides these women and their families with a new-found economic opportunity as well as providing the community self-sufficiency and sustainability. Global Family Projects are funded by matching 2% of Under the Nile sales with 2% from their farm partners. This unique form of funding fights poverty, making a significant impact by supporting communities in need.

To market, to market! This cotton knit tote is stuffed with 100% organic cotton fruits -- Chiquita banana, pear, grapes and watermelon buddies -- all dyed with natural non-toxic colors.
