4. Recycled Plastic
Our products demonstrate that recycling can result in something tangible and meaningful – old can become new. Our toys are living proof that milk jugs, just like the ones in your refrigerator and recycling bin, can ultimately end up back in your playroom. This helps close the loop for kids because they can see their own environmental efforts in action.
While recycled milk jugs are the primary ingredient in our toys, we sometimes integrate other types of recycled plastic (think yogurt cups!) when needed to ensure we’re creating the best products possible. All the plastic is collected by waste management, cleaned, shredded into flakes, reprocessed into our raw material, and mixed with food-safe, mineral-based coloring. Voilà, its playtime!
The milk jugs we use are 100% post-consumer recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Some products have components made from recycled polypropylene (PP) or recycled low-density polyethylene (LDPE). By using recycled plastic, we divert material from landfills, save energy, and reduce our carbon footprint.
