Recycled Plastic Milk Jugs: We use recycled milk containers as the main ingredient in creating our 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.
Toy Safety and Testing
Green Toys products are tested by nationally recognized, independent, third-party labs (located, yes, in the USA.) They contain no traceable amounts of Phthalates or BPA. They are also designed without any external coatings, eliminating the fear of lead paint.
Our products pass a plethora of tests, including:
* Consumer Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA)
* Consumer Products Safety Standard Specification, ASTM F963
* California Prop. 65 restrictions on lead & cadmium
* FDA regulations for food contact
* Voluntary testing for no BPA (Bisphenol-A)
* International standards EN71 and ISO 8124
Made in the 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?
Green Toys Save Energy - On average, every pound of recycled milk jugs used in the making of Green Toys;
- Saves energy equal to 3,000 AAA batteries
- Saves enough electricity to power a TV set for a three (3) whole weeks.
- Saves enough electricity to keep a laptop computer running for a month.
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!!
