I think you get the idea now, they have a wide range of toys that spark play and imagination, but there are quite a few more things that make these toys special.
Green Toys are Made in the USA! This isn’t just about patriotism; there are some key benefits when products are made in the USA, particularly for toys. When made in the USA, toys must meet standards set by the Consumer Products Safety Commission, protecting you and your children from toxins and other health risks. And these are made in California which has standards that are more stringent than the rest of the nation.
With these toys made in California leading to less transportation and less energy equaling a reduced carbon footprint. Add in EPA regulations that protect the environment, the buying local effects on communities and local labor, Made in the USA is a shortcut to feeling good about the purchase you have made.
But that is not all. Green Toys are a local creation and they take great pride in the design of their toys. Working with sustainable, locally sourced raw materials, they avoid glues, screws metal or paint, creating simple yet durable toys with unique details.
Green Toys are made from 100% recycled plastic (keeping this waste out of landfills). The predominant ingredient is plastic milk jugs but recycled yogurt containers may also used . Cleaned, shredded, processed and mixed with mineral based and food safe colorants, they have the ingredients they need for captivating play pieces. When complete, their toys are phthalate, PVC, and BPA free. And the finish is the plastic – no paints or peeling coatings. And their toys float and are dishwasher safe.
And the packaging, also recycled materials with soy based inks.
