Even with the holidays behind us, children will still be playing with their toys everyday. Each toy is made from different material. Some are better for the environment than others.
Christmas may be over, but children continue to play with their toys on a regular basis. Some toys are more eco-friendly than others.
Kristen Patterson works for Discovery Toys as a consultant. She says an eco-friendly toy is made out of the right material and lasts a long time.
You may want to look for toys which are made out of wood and help out our forests at the same time. The amount of plastic packaging is a good clue too.
Like recycling, a nice toy will grow with the child and can be used for years.
