100% Recycled Green Toys for an Ethically Responsible Christmas

A well-loved and respected ethical manufacturer, Green Toys uses recycled plastic milk cartons as the main ingredient in all their lovely products. The cartons are collected across the USA by recycling companies then reprocessed into an innovative plastic material called high density polyethylene, AKA HDPE. It’s one of the safest, cleanest plastics on the planet. It’s strong and durable. It’s completely non-toxic. And it’s fully recyclable in its own right.

A ‘huge step forward’ in toy manufacture

Take one pound of recycled milk cartons. Green Toys’ process saves a surprising amount of energy for each pound in weight, enough to power 3,000 AAA batteries, run your telly for three weeks or keep your laptop humming away for a month. That’s a whole lot of energy and the process is being hailed as a huge step forward in the manufacture of children's toys.

The packaging is equally green. For a start, the company uses as little packaging as possible, and their boxes use the minimum amount of materials. Green Toys come in cleverly-designed and suitably sturdy recycled corrugated card cut-out boxes without so much as a sniff of plastic or cellophane. And of course the packaging is also 100% recyclable.
