Using removable/reusable wall stickers is a fun and easy way to decorate any child's room. Unfortunately, many of the wall stickers available are made of vinyl and contain PVC. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) releases poisonous chemicals linked to both cancer and birth defects.
Greenie2Steps offers an eco-friendly alternative to traditional wall stickers. Their Whimsical Wall Art is printed on fabric with eco-friendly, water-based Eco-Sol™ inks then are protected with safe, water-based laminates and coatings. The adhesive that allows you to remove and re-apply the wall art hundreds of times is also water-based. There is also a very fun story behind Greenie and her friends:
Greenie is the eco-friendly elephant that took her first steps toward making the world a better place on the beautiful and magical island of TelleyGreen. On TelleyGreen, Greenie breathes clean, fresh air, gets her food from a beautiful garden, and drinks water from a clear and fast-flowing stream. One day, Greenie looked up at the sky and saw a beautiful leaf she had never seen before. After she showed the leaf to Garrett, Geraldine, Lenny and Taj (her best friends) they decided to find out where it came from, and that is where the adventures began.
Greenie2Steps sent me a Greenie & Friends Stick-Up Set to try out. This set consists of five 9.5 inch reusable stickers. I was excited to get these because my twins actually have a safari theme in their room so this would go well. Plus, they are 2.5 years old and I still have not put up any of their wall decor. Here is what one side of their room looked like before my little makeover:
The Greenie2Steps wall art was very easy to use. The sheet comes rolled up so lay it flat before you get started. While you are waiting for that, give the walls a quick wipe with a wet cloth to make sure you have a clean surface. When you are ready, slowly and gently peel the stickers off of the sheet. They come off very easily and I had no tearing or any other issues. Then press onto the wall and smooth out any air bubbles. I wound up putting my stickers around the closet, which unfortunately you can't see too well in the before picture above (it is the brown door on the far right). But here are some after pictures, I think they look great!
I can't even tell you how excited the boys were to see their newly decorated room! They keep running over to the lion and tiger and pointing to them so I tell them what they are (they both have a speech delay).
Greenie2Steps has lots of different wall art options in multiple sizes. They even have huge Eco-Murals that look very cool!
