Cute kids deserve safe, US made toys (yes, they do!)

How annoying is it when people try to force their beliefs on you? Most of the time, it’s very annoying. Hopefully, I am not as annoying. I’m not trying to make you do what you don’t want to do, but I will keep talking about reducing consumption and making better choices. It’s just a reminder, and one you can’t really argue. Of course we should all be more mindful of what we purchase and ultimately, what we throw away.

So, with that said, I am guilty of bombarding my sister’s family with a lot of “good choice” presents and “advice”. She does get the organic pasture raised eggs now (they’re better for you and for the chickens) but I fear that alone won’t keep me from nagging.

Last time we visited, I brought the gift of recycling. To be precise, a recycling truck made from recycled plastic, here in the states, by Green Toys Inc. Score! I was really excited about this gift (naturally) and fortunately my nephew seemed to love it too.

Green Toys have a bunch of different products and lines. Buckets, water toys, kitchen play sets, cars, airplanes and more. All their toys are non-toxic, safe, BPA-free and made from curbside collected recyclables.

So don’t tell me all kids toys are made in China! Here’s proof that they’re not. And you can afford it. Just buy one Green Toy instead of three random ones at Toys R’ Us. Reduce your consumption and vote with your dollars.

My gorgeous nephew and I will discuss the (depressing) recycling situation in America in more depth when he gets a little older. Maybe when he’s like three. That should be a good time to start.
