Spreading the Go-green Spirit with Toys
Robert von Goeben and Laurie Hyman, the co-founders of Green Toys Inc., have taken environmentalism one step further with their line of go-green toys. The company manufactures toys from environmentally friendly materials like recycled plastic, and strives to conserve the use of fossil fuels to save the planet.
Go-Green Toys’ Products with the Touch of ‘Made in USA’
Green Toys Inc. has its manufacturing facilities in the United States. The main factory is based in San Leandro, California and adds a proud touch of Made in USA to the products. The international markets for Green Toys include China, Japan, South Korea, and Russia. The products of the company have gained popularity worldwide because of the high safety standards followed in the United States.
The company makes use of recycled milk containers in their manufacturing process. The containers are processed by recycling companies and reprocessed by Green Toys Inc., to make fresh and clean plastic. This material is technically known as High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). It is among the most resilient and safest plastics used for manufacturing toys. Their products do not contain BPA, PVC, or Phthalates that are known to be harmful components.
Go-Green with an Extension to Eco-Friendly Promotional Items
The raw materials for creating the toys at Green Toys Inc. are obtained from local recycling facilities that provide recycled plastic, wholesale reusable bags and green shopping bags, etc., in and around California. Transportation of raw materials plays a major factor in increasing greenhouse gas emissions. The raw materials, packaging materials, supply chains, and retail stores are all located in the United States, and mainly in California, reducing need for transportation. This way the company contributes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere. The products are tested for safety hazards by nationally recognized laboratories, and they abide by all the safety regulations set by the State of California.
In addition to the green toy making process, the company also uses eco-friendly packaging. The boxes are recycled and corrugated. They do not harbor any plastic, cellophane, or twines. The boxes are also 100% recyclable and can be reused. For holidays, the company uses eco friendly promotional items to educate the public about their cause. They do not only promote their products but the idea behind their organization – to conserve and protect the environment.
Green Toys Inc. products include airplanes, trucks, blocks, tea sets, dish sets, and many more enjoyable, child-friendly, and eco-friendly toys. Green Toys Inc. is so far the only company that makes 100% eco-friendly toys from 100% recycled materials.
