GUEST POST - Enchant Wedding Guests Of All Ages With Plastic-Free and Organic Allergen-Free Chocolate Favours From PLAYin CHOC
13th January 2020
I recently came across this lovely company on Instagram and thought they would make the most perfect wedding favours for an eco-conscious wedding! What do you think?
PLAYin CHOC was devised and created by Maya Simler, driven by her desire for something better for her children and frustration with the harm caused to the natural world by plastic and excessive packaging. As the mother of 2 young boys, Maya says:
“I still remember the anticipation, excitement and joy I felt as a child when my parents would buy me a special treat – chocolate with a small toy! I felt compelled to create my own take on this but with a firm focus on beautiful illustration and design, an awareness of the world around us and, of course, artisanal, fairly traded ingredients.”
Maya’s background in design, her uncompromising attention to detail and a pioneering approach to engaging children with the future of our planet, means that each box, as well as the carefully crafted contents within, are not only beautifully designed but also 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
The PLAYin CHOC chocolate is suitable for virtually everyone as it dairy-free, nut-free, gluten-free, soy-free and contains coconut sugar instead of refined cane sugars. The winning inclusive formula is a combination of only three natural, organic ingredients. The finest fairly traded Peruvian cacao beans (grown on small family-owned farms and gently roasted to release the full flavours) are combined with Madagascan Bourbon vanilla and a vitamin-rich coconut to create each of the domino-sized treats, which are also certified organic and vegan.
For Your Young/Young At Heart Guests - ToyChoc Boxes
PLAYin CHOC launched in 2018 with the 18-set Endangered animals, however, there are now 66 animals to collect across 5 collectable ranges. The newest range being the 18-set Dinosaurs, which sits alongside 18 Woodland animals, 6 Rabbits and 6 Christmas characters.
Each ToyChoc Box contains an eco-friendly 3D toy to assemble (suitable for ages 3 years and older), an educational fun facts card made from 100% recycled and recyclable card and paper, plus 2 x 10g organic vegan chocolates wrapped in home compostable film. Kids can also keep the frames from their animal puzzle to use as stencils for colouring and creative play, and keep the box for more play or for keepsakes.
For Your Grown Up Guests - JustChoc Boxes
JustChoc Boxes come in boxes of 5 and 10 pieces of 10g organic allergen-free mini chocolate bars individually wrapped in 100% home compostable film. JustChoc Boxes are available in Single Origin Peruvian Vegan Milk (which is the flavour that is in every ToyChoc Box), and also Single Origin Peruvian Dark 70%.
Not only do their chocolates taste good, but they do good, too; in addition to their glowing eco-credentials, PLAYin CHOC supports 5 charities from the sale of its products: The Natural History Museum in London; Whitley Fund for Nature; English Heritage, Unicef, and WWF.
