Today, Green Toys Inc., lauded for manufacturing US-made environmentally and socially responsible products for children, announced that since launching in 2008 the company has used 21,688,824 million recycled plastic milk jugs in the manufacturing of their products, diverting over 3,116,210 lbs of waste from landfills. Green Toys dedication to the environment has resulted in a tremendous savings of energy and reduction of greenhouse gasses and continues to serve as a model for the toy industry. 

“As pioneers in the industry, we’re incredibly proud of the steps we’ve taken as a company to help protect the environment and make sure the earth is a safe place for the children of the future,” said Howard Friend, CEO of Green Toys Inc.  “Seeing the number of recycled milk jugs climb on a daily basis is incredibly rewarding to our team.  Each and every toy we manufacture helps to advance awareness on important environmental issues.  As we continue to diversify our products and demand for Green Toys products grows, so does our role in this ever-growing effort.”

Green Toys has pioneered the use of recycled materials in children’s products. The company’s Green ToysTM toy line and Green EatsTM tableware line are made with 100% recycled plastic, primarily from recycled milk containers, and will expand their product offerings later this year with the addition of a new line of push toys. This food-safe, eco-friendly material contains no BPA, phthalates, PVC or melamine. The milk jugs are curbside-collected in California, where Green Toys conducts all phases of its operations, including toy design, manufacturing, assembly and distribution. The Green Toys local supply chain not only saves energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, it ensures better worker safety and factory environmental compliance due to California’s strict regulations in both areas. 

Green Toys Inc.’s environmental mission extends beyond just the toys. All Green Toys and Green Eats products are packaged in 100% recyclable corrugated boxes with no plastics, cellophane, or twist-ties and printed with soy inks.
