If you're here, I know it's because you care for both your child's future and the planet's too, and you understand that every purchasing decision you make supports the kind of world you want him to grow up in. From building bricks made out of sugarcane to frisbees recycled from fishing nets, here are 5 Earth-conscious toys you can invest in for your child this summer!

1. BiOBUDDi Building Blocks ($22.99 - $32.99)

Forget your traditional Lego bricks, these BiOBUDDi building blocks are plastic-free and made from biobased materials from leftover sugarcane plant (yes, sugarcane!), making it safe for your child and the environment. Manufactured in the Netherlands, the packaging, stickers, instructions and other materials are also eco-friendly. These bright, uniquely designed pieces can be stacked in endless combinations and will help your child develop spatial awareness and motor skills.

A recent survey by scientists associated with Ocean Cleanup determined that almost half of the plastic in the garbage patch in our oceans come from discarded fishing nets, and Bureo is providing an out-of-the-box solution by recycling green fishing nets collected in Chile into frisbees. They are designed to last you a lifetime, but you can also send them back to Bureo to be recycled again into something new!

3. eco-kids Eco Crayon Sticks ($5.99 - $20.99)

Cammie Weeks added safe pigments and beeswax to her mother's non-toxic playdough recipe to create the world's first eco-friendly crayons. The angles on the sticks allow for creating defined lines and varying widths of color, and the natural formula is fade-resistant. Let your child's imagination run free, and you don't have to worry if they put these into their mouths (teething child, anyone?).

Suitable for both indoor and outdoor play, this adorable play trike will have your child scooting around safely while getting them ready for their first bicycle. It is made from 100% FSC-certified beech wood and its sturdy construction will last a long time to come. Sit back, enjoy your coffee and watch your kid race up and down with this fun ride.

Manufactured in the USA from 100% recycled plastic milk jugs, this award-winning 44-piece set contains brightly-colored lilies, petunias and daisies, along with stem and leaf pieces and multiple bases to encourage your child to channel their inner florist. Each pound of recycled plastic saves enough energy to power 3,000 AAA batteries or a laptop computer for a month!
