Toy Box: Green Toys Sand Play Set

Summer and the beach go hand-in-hand. Since there's been so much fuss about the greening of toys, I was excited to come across Green Toys’ Sand Play Set ($22) at Giggle the other day. Since providing my tot with her own shovel, rake, bucket and sand mold, I have the peace of mind that the products are made from recycled plastic milk containers and are environmentally safe and phthalates-free.

All of Green Toys products are made in California, from milk jugs discarded by the state's residents so there is no need to worry about overseas plastic regulations. According to the company, every pound of recycled milk jugs used in making their toys saves enough electricity to keep a laptop computer running for a month. And the set comes in recycled corrugated boxes that are 100 percent recyclable.
