well aware of how many plastic milk bottles
march through the front door and out again into the recycling bin. Most
families would go through at least a few hundred per year and
you can imagine how many millions a country like the USA
generates. It’s great to have a tangible object available, made from
all those milk bottles to make you feel good about your own scrupulous
Green Toys make beautiful children’s toys out of 100% recylced milk
bottles and proudly keep all production local to California, a state with very stringent environemental benchmarks.
With the rising costs of transporting goods, this makes excellent business
sense and saves further on the world’s resources.
There are three sets available – Tea Set, Sand Play Set, and Cookware & Dining Set. Being made from food-quality plastics, the toys are completely safe for your little ones
– they contain no Phthalates or BPA.
There are also some interesting facts about the environmental impact of Green Toys products –
every kilo of recycled milk jugs used in the making of Green Toys saves energy equal to 6000 AAA batteries, enough
electricity to power a TV for 6 weeks or keep a laptop computer running for 2 months!
The products are good looking and virtually unbreakable, which is a godsend in this
tile-floored house of ours!
Green Toys are available exclusively in Australia from
bébé. The Tea Set is $59.95, Sand Play Set is $44.95 and the
Cookware & Dining Set is $89.95 with a very huge 27 pieces!
