From Milk Jugs to Tea Sets

Ever wonder what happens to your gallon milk jugs you put in your curbside recycling bin? It's possible they were made into tea sets, dishes or other toys for small tikes by a company called Green Toys Inc. located here in California.

According to their website: "All Green Toys products are 100% made in the USA. To be more specific, they are produced in California, a state known for strict toy safety and environmental laws. It's cool to buy USA, but also think about this: transportation is one of the biggest contributors to greenhouse gasses. We all know driving less is good for mother nature, but did you ever think about how many miles a toy logs before it ends up in your local store?

Green Toys environmental mission even extends to our packaging. We strive to minimize packaging, and all of our 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. So, not only are they earth-friendly and ready for your recycling bin, they are really easy to open for those little fingers just itching to get at the toys!!"

They're pretty cute too!  I'm thinkin' Santa is extra jolly when he sees these on a Christmas list...
