Shiva Kashalkar, founder and CEO of Green Pinata Toy Share, emails, “A mom of a young daughter, I was inspired by her curiosity for new toys and my passion for toxin-free living. Founded in early 2015, Green Pinata is an online toy rental subscription service featuring toxin-free, educational toys for children under 5. Our service has grown tremendously and has received overwhelmingly positive customer feedback. We operate in the Eastern states from Maine to Florida, and our plan for 2016 is to expand inland and also begin operations on the West Coast, starting with San Francisco.”
