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 used is called high-density polyethylene (or HDPE). This material is considered one of the safest, cleanest plastics around.
Made in California, USA. To be more specific, they are produced in California, a state known for strict toy safety and environmental laws.
Their toys are truly local creations. Every step in the process, from milk container recycling to toy production to final assembly, occurs in California. Their 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!
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!!
