Did you know that Green Toys save energy? Green Toys Inc products are all made out of recycled plastic from milk jugs and other environmentally friendly materials that in turn save energy when compared to products made from non-recycled plastic.
According to their site, 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 3 weeks
- Saves enough electricity to keep a laptop computer running for a month
Another way Green Toys Inc saves energy is by having a short trip into consumers hands in Baltimore! Being produced in California, a state known for strict toy safety and environmental laws, is just one of the perks of it being a USA made product. The more locally a product is made, the less travel required, the less energy required and less greenhouse gasses emitted. It takes a whole lot less travel to get here from California than from overseas factories!
They even keep their packaging minimal by packaging them using as little materials as possible in recycled corrugated boxes with no plastics, cellophane or twist-ties. The packaging is 100% recyclable itself which saves even more energy, not to mention it makes it easier to get the toys out and ready to play with in no time!
