Disney has introduced a new “green” product line. Starting this week, environmentally friendly merchandise will start appearing on shelves across property.
Last year, Disney developed guidelines for what “green” meant. They wanted to make sure if a product said “green” it actually meant something. Their efforts gave birth to some surprisingly innovative merchandise.
Here is a list of the new “green” products:
Stationery, notebooks, and pencils made out of recycled materials including rubber tires, denim, and currency.
T-shirts made from organic cotton. Organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides, chemicals, or synthetic fertilizers.
Purses made from misprinted Disney candy bar wrappers.
Mickey and Minnie plush toys made from organic cotton and earth-friendly inks.
Jewelry made from bamboo and coconuts.
Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund pins that come on a paper-card embedded with wildflower seeds. The card can be planted in the soil to grow flowers.
Displays like these (below) can be found in shops designating where green products are for sale. And before you ask me, the purses sell from the mid-twenties to the mid-fifties, depending on size.
