All Green Toys products are produced in California, a state known for strict toy safety and environmental laws. Every step in the process, from milk container recycling to toy production to final assembly, occurs locally. Their raw materials and toys aren't shipped from overseas, which saves a lot of energy and reduces greenhouse gasses. They are also designed without any external coatings, eliminating the fear of lead paint. They use recycled milk containers as the main ingredient in creating our toys. Green Toys environmental mission even extends to their packaging. They strive to minimize packaging, and all of their boxes use as little material as possible. All Green Toys products are packaged in recycled corrugated boxes with no plastics, cellophane or twist-ties, and are 100% recyclable.
