Green Toys

With the bad press going on with a lot of toys today, with things like lead paint being found in them. It is nice to find toys that make you feel safe and are good for the environment. That is what Green Toys is.... A safe 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. Their toys are BPA , Phthalate, and Lead FREE!
Besides great classic toys such as trucks, tool sets, tea sets and more they also have "safe" children's dining ware. They have collections of bowls, utensils and plates that are made from 100% recycled plastic free of BPA, toxins, and have no external coatings. Even Green Toys packaging is Eco-Friendly, Using only recycled and recyclable materials and printed with soy inks.

Something I found to be really interesting was their main "construction" component, Milk containers! That is right each week we are placing our milk containers out to the curb for recycle collection. They then are picked up, sorted, and reprocessed into super clean fresh plastic.

We were given the chance to review the Recycle Truck from green toys. Now they had a few really cool trucks but I thought the recycle truck would be perfect for not only a fun toy, but for teaching my son about recycling and how it can lead to more cool toys for him.

He loved the fact the he "may have" drank from the container that his shiny new truck came from. You can trust a milk container will never accidentally be tossed in with the regular garbage with my son around anytime soon.

The Eco Friendly Recycle Truck  has no metal axles. The Green Toys Recycling Truck is made in the U.S.A. from 100% recycled plastic milk containers.

Buy It: In the market for some quality Green Toys check out Green Toys online site. You can purchase the Recycle Truck  for 24.99.
