What makes a toy “eco-friendly”? If you buy them used, you know you’re saving the energy it takes to make a new toy—and you’re keeping something out of a landfill. There are also some eco-options for brand new toys made from sustainable materials such as rubberwood or recycled plastic. We will reveal our favorite wooden toys on Thursday. Here are our top picks for new, eco-friendly toys made from other materials:
Sprig Toys Eco-Truck Loader. Made from a “wood-plastic composite that smells like wood.”
Green Toys Tea Set. Made from curbside collected milk containers!
Green Sprouts Stacking Cup Set. BPA-, PVC-, and phthalate-free.
Sevi Xylophone Eco-friendly Toy. Colored with vegetable dyes!
Under the Nile Banana Toy. Made from fair-trade organic cotton.
