Green toys

Green Toys — made in California from 100 percent recycled milk jugs are now sold at Monticello Marketplace’s School Crossing. Store owner, Sherry Phipps, says “It’s a new line of toys in the last 2 months, and they are really selling well as parents become more concerned about toy safety. Also, more toy manufacturers are seeing recycled content and packaging as important factors.” This environmentally friendly alternative to traditional plastic toys includes play cookware, gardening kits, and beach toys. See www.greentoys.com/green.html to find local stores that sell this line.
