No BPA, phthalates, PVC or external coatings. Meets FDA food contact standards. Dishwasher Safe. Robert von Goeben and Laurie Hyman founded Green Toys Inc. in 2007 with the simple idea that parents want to feel good about the products they give their children. Green Toys™ was born with the vision of providing environmentally friendly and socially responsible children’s products made in the USA. Green Toys has pioneered the use of recycled materials in children’s products. The company’s Green Toys™ toy line and Green Eats™ tableware line are made with 100% recycled plastic, primarily from recycled milk containers. 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. All Green Toys products, designed without external coatings or paints, conform to important international safety requirements, including ASTM F963, EN-71, ISO 8124, and Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). They also meet FDA requirements for food contact and are dishwasher safe. Green Toys Inc.’s environmental mission extends to its packaging. 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. The Original Green Toys™ line, including the best-selling Green Toys™ Tea Set, debuted in early 2008 and was an instant hit with kids, parents and retailers. Launched in 2009, the iconic Green ToysTM Recycling Truck may now be the best-known eco-toy on the planet. Toy stores around the world make it the centerpiece of their eco-friendly product displays. Much more than a cool vehicle, the Green Toys Recycling Truck teaches kids how to do to their part in protecting the Earth. My First Green Toys™, a line designed for babies and toddlers, was released in March 2010 as a result of consumer demand for safer products for younger children and has received high acclaim. The Green Toys™ Stacker was praised for its ultra-safe, no-post design, and the Green Toys™ Tugboat, a colorful bath toy with a fun and useful spout feature, surpassed all sales projections to become one of the company’s top-selling items. Green Toys Inc. expanded into new categories in 2011 with highly-demanded, innovative play food products to accompany its popular kitchen play sets, as well as the launch of Green Eats, a complete line of recycled, reusable tableware for kids. In 2012, the company will extend its best-selling vehicle, play food, and preschool building lines with earth-friendly products that engage young minds and spark healthy habits. Green Toys products are sold via online retailers and at more than 5,000 specialty stores worldwide including Whole Foods, Saks 5th Avenue, Barnes and Noble, Nordstrom and Pottery Barn. The company received a Greener Packaging Award for best practices in sustainable packaging. The Green Toys™ Pizza Parlor is among the finalists for the prestigious Toy Industry Association’s 2012 Toy of the Year Award that will be announced in February 2012.
