Sustainable Toy Shopping
Is the packaging excessive?
Is the packaging made from recycled materials?
Is the plastic grade identified on the packaging?
Does your municipality accept the plastic grade identified?
Is there a blend of materials with the packaging ie. shiny cardboard?
Is the packaging complex with many small pieces?
Will the toy be used often or is it a fad product?
Consider keeping the packaging/box so that gently used toys can be donated with their packaging, giving another child the full experience. That is if it’s not torn to shreds ;)
