It’s one thing to buy your kids eco-friendly toys, but it’s another thing to teach them the lesson of being green.

Do both with the new Greenzys plush animal and book collection, which already counts celeb moms Katherine Heigl and Nicole Ritchie as fans.

Not only are they adorable, but these green (literally!) stuffed animals are made from soy fibers and non-toxic dyes and come in packaging made from recycled paperboard.

Plus, there is a book — printed with soy-based inks — featuring all of the characters explaining the importance of living an eco-friendly lifestyle.

Even better? With each purchase of a Greenzys toy, a tree is planted by the Arbor Day Foundation and a portion of the proceeds is donated to the Environmental Media Association.
