I really think it is great when companies take the initiative to make things out recycled materials. Especially when they are using it to make eco-friendly toys!
"Green Toys Inc. makes an awesome line of classic children’s toys constructed from recycled plastic and other environmentally friendly materials. This helps reduce fossil fuel use and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improving the overall health and happiness of the planet."
Green Toys makes all of their toys from recycled plastic milk jugs and they are all made in the USA. In addition to the fact that they use recycled plastic, their packaging is made from recycled cardboard and is 100% recyclable itself. No cellophane or annoying little twist-ties. Just the bare minimum so there is less waste and the toys are easy to remove. All of their toys are also free of BPA and phthalates.
In honor of Earth Day, Green Toys sent me their Indoor Gardening Kit to try out. William was very excited! He's been intently looking at my veggie seedlings for a few weeks now so he was very happy to get his own seeds to plant.
This kit comes with everything you need to plant your seeds: 3 pots, tray, shovel, soil and organic seeds. The seeds are Basil, Sunflower and Zinia and they give you more than enough in the packets. The soild come sin dehyrdated "bricks" that you simply add water to and then atch them exand. We planted our seeds on April 17 and today, 6 days later, we alrady have some sprouts poking through the soil.
In addition to the gardening kit, they also have trucks, a tool set, a tea set and more. I particuarly like the Recycling Truck and the Cooware & Dining Set.
One winner will receive their Indoor Gardening Kit from Green Toys.
