Eco-Friendly Plastics

Good for the Earth and Safer to Chew

It's a fact. Young children chew on things. Even when they are past the point of teething many children taste their toys. Chewing seems to help some kids concentrate and process new information. This takes the importance of the materials our children's toys are made out of to a new level. It's not just about durability, it's might also be about the toys healthfulness. 

Enter Sprig toys. This great line of plastic toys is made out of reclaimed wood and recycled plastic. Worried that the recycled plastic carries harmful toxins? The manufacturers of Spring toys test for BPA, phthalates, lead and other toxins. Not satisfied with government minimum levels they strive to exceed US and European safety standards, and all of their toys are tested by independent laboratories to prevent in-house mistakes. Sprig makes baby toys, cars and trucks all powered by your child's imagination.

 

Green toys also make fantastic toys out of recycled plastic. In their case, they use only recycled milk jugs so that you can be sure their toys are safe to eat off of. I especially like this line because they make a tea set and dishes your little one can eat off of and that is dish-washer safe. Our kids both liked to have "real" tea parties with actual food and drink. I didn't want to hand over my tea set, but most toys made me cringe when used as actual dishes. The green toys set was a huge relief. Thankfully, it was also loved by both of my children!
