About eKoala

Sometimes great revolutions start from small changes. eKoala has decided to open its eyes and make more responsible choices, to develop products for children made of unique, alternative and eco-friendly materials. We believe it is high time to start building a world for our children that truly is a Wonderland. European standards and design, environmentally friendly, non-toxic! 

What's Bioplastic? 

Imagine that the bottle of water on your desk, the toy in your child's hand, the spoon used for their first meal and the packaging of your dinner could be made with high safety standards, using mostly substance of vegetable origin.

Imagine that objects we usually use only for a minute but remain in our environment for thousands years, could disappear and biodegrades in less time. This is the magic of bioplastic. Watch the video here.  

What's vegetal cashmere?

Vegetal Cashmere is a unique textile fibre made from white pine wood pulp: green and healthy. In order to protect our environment, the wood fibre used is cultivated: harvesting coincides with normal pruning. Its peculiar molecular structure makes the fibre soft, lightweight and super absorbent.
It's incredible, but the more you wash it the softer this fabric becomes.

Cuddle your babies with the sweetness of vegetal cashmere!

Who is eKoala Australia?

Hi, my name is Brinley and I discovered eKoala when my toddler was ready for toilet learning. I procrastinated so much about purchasing a potty from one of the usual baby outlets as I knew it would be another piece of plastic that would end up in landfill at the end of its short use.

I searched online for something more sustainable and discovered eKoala in Italy. When I learnt that they did not have a distributor in Australia and I could not get the item sent from Italy for any reasonable postage, I became their distributor and here we are today.

I have fallen in love with eKoala’s colourful toys and feel such a peace of mind as my little one chews away at them. I know as parents we all want the best for our children. We give them wooden toys when we can, try not to feed them junk food, and recycle and upcycle what we can. And sometimes our kids still want to play with plastic and eat chocolate and that’s okay too, we do our best.

I feel that by bringing eKoala to Australia I am helping families easily replace even just one more item with something non-toxic and environmentally friendly into their life in a way that’s full of fun! 


Who is eKoala Italy?

Beatrice and Daniele Radaelli, founders of eKoala, have decided to look at the world of plastic materials from a different point of view, driven by liability and environmental sustainability.

Their will to merge all the potential of traditional plastic with a strong attention to the protection of our planet and, especially of our health, brought them to explore the BIOplastic world, for a large part yet to be experimented.

And their experiment starts form the world of children, the most vulnerable to the attack of toxic substances found in traditional plastic.  

Daniele Radaelli: After a Psychology degree I worked for years in the field of scientific research about neuroscience and I conducted clinical and assistance activity with commitment and great passion. The analysis of care and education processes is an important starting point in the design of products that should be pedagogically safe for the growth of a child.

When I’m not working I love to be a  globetrotter. I have always been a supporter of environmental protection and sustainable development. Becoming a dad recently, I tried to put in eKoala my personal business ideas, combining a strong love for nature with a special attention to the world of children.

Beatrice Radaelli: I love travelling (especially without planning) and I’m deeply fascinated by all the different cultures in the world: I love being enchanted, like a child, by the beauty of nature. My degree in foreign languages allowed me to get experience in different fields.

First a jump into the world of contemporary art for some years of experience in communication, public relations and events. Then I decided to get closer to the business world and I worked for some years for my family company, dealing with traditional plastic products.

And it is from the considerations emerged in this “plastic” field that I started to put particular attention to the problems caused by plastic to our environment and to our health.

It is from this experience that I decided I would try to change something in the world. And I chose I would do that with eKoala.
