iPlay/Green Sprouts

Inspiration

Becky Cannon, founder of i play., Inc., had her first daughter, Emi, in Japan in 1979. There, she discovered unique, quality baby products with special functions, made of natural materials and cute designs. When Becky moved back to the U.S. and had her second daughter, Mari, in 1982, these features became the basis for the products at i play., Inc.

Purpose

Since 1982, we have made it a priority to ensure that our products are free of any substances that could pose a health risk to babies. Through research and experience, we strive to make informed choices based on babies’ perspective and parents’ lifestyle priorities.

We also consider safety, functionality, convenience, affordability, quality, design, and environmental friendliness in our product development. We are always looking for new and better materials and processes, and scouting for possible harmful ingredients.

We develop our products based on principles. Each product has icons on it’s packaging to represent the following principles:

    The Natural World

    Reducing resources, waste, and pollution are fundamental ways to lower our environmental impact. We strive to use materials that are from renewable resources, recycled, and recyclable. We consider the lifecycle of products – reusable, recyclable and extendable life.

    The features for the health and safety of babies are often also less polluting for the environment. For instance, organic cotton, PVC-free, and BPA-free. When possible, we use vegetable-based inks in our product packaging.
