How are our 'Green Toys' Made?
Green Toys are made from Recycled Plastic Milk Jugs !
The Green Toys Company are leading the way in Eco-Friendly productions. They use recycled
milk containers as the main ingredient in creating their toys. Yes, the exact plastic milk jugs that
you and your family drink from every day. When you finish your milk and toss the container in the
recycling bin, these milk containers are collected at your curb by a local recycling company, who
then sorts them from all the other types of plastic. Next, the milk containers are reprocessed into
super clean fresh plastic. For you plastic geeks, the plastic material we use is called high-density
polyethylene (or HDPE). This material is considered one of the safest, cleanest plastics around.
Made in California, USA:
Less Transportation, Less Energy
All Green Toys products are 100% made in the USA. To be more specific, they are produced in
California, a state known for strict toy safety and environmental laws. It's cool to buy USA,
but also think about this: transportation is one of the biggest contributors to greenhouse gasses.
We all know driving less is good for mother nature, but did you ever think about how many miles
a toy logs before it ends up in your local store?
Our toys are truly local creations. Every step in the process, from milk container recycling to toy
production to final assembly, occurs in California. Our raw materials and toys aren't shipped from
overseas, which saves a lot of energy and reduces greenhouse gasses. It also guarantees your
toys won't get seasick before they get to your home!
Environmentally friendly recycled Packaging
Green Toys environmental mission even extends to our packaging. We strive to minimize packaging,
and all of our boxes use as little material as possible. All Green Toys products are packaged in
recycled corrugated boxes with no plastics, cellophane or twist-ties, and are 100% recyclable.
So, not only are they earth-friendly and ready for your recycling bin, they are really easy to open
for those little fingers just itching to get at the toys!!
