Good Green Toys Fun
With Earth Day on the horizon, we’re shining a spotlight on Green Toys. Green Toys are a US-based eco-friendly toy company, whose products are made from 100% recycled materials. Everyday trash is turned into kids’ toy treasures, without the need for bad chemicals.
Green Toys believe that the most effective way to bring about environmental change is through the products people buy and use daily - and in their case, that’s kids’ toys. Find out how sustainability and playfulness go hand in hand below!
From Milk Cartons To Eco-Friendly Toys
Did you know that Green Toys’ products are all made from recycled plastic milk containers? That’s right, in Green Toys’ home city of California, milk cartons are collected from roadside recycling bins.
Milk jugs are the best material to manufacture eco-friendly toys from as the food-safe plastic doesn’t contain BPAs, PVC or Phthalates. This means it’s safe for youngsters to chew their toys! Green Toys also don’t use screws (or any metal in fact) or glue in their products.
The reason for this is that mixed materials often end up in landfill; products manufactured from mixed materials have to be disassembled so that each material can be individually recycled. Green Toys’ single material usage eradicates this and makes it a breeze for parents to recycle toys that their kids have outgrown.
To prevent additional wastage, Green Toys’ packaging is also 100% recyclable and plastic and polystyrene free.
For every pound of recycled milk jugs used to make a Green Toys product, enough energy is saved to power 3,000 AAA batteries, run a TV for 3 weeks, or use a laptop for a month!
At the time of writing, Green Toys have recycled an impressive 105,697,894 milk jugs!
Safe and Sustainable Toys
100% recycled toys don’t compromise on safety. Green Toys’ products all adhere to US and International standards for BPA and Phthalates, including The CPSIA, ASTM F963, EN 71, and ISO 8124.
