green toys: recycled milk jugs

Green Toys Inc. makes an amazing line of children’s toys constructed from recycled plastic and other environmentally friendly materials. Robert von Goeben & Laurie Hyman, the founders of Green Toys, use recycled milk containers as the main ingredient in creating the toys. The material is high-density polyethylene (or HDPE). This material is considered one of the safest, cleanest plastics around.

Green Toys environmental mission even extends to their packaging using minimized packaging, the toys are packaged in recycled corrugated boxes with no plastics, cellophane or twist-ties, and are 100% recyclable.

The toys are very aesthetically pleasing, but I would worry a bit about toxins. Are the toys free from phthalates or BPA? Plastic is such a wonderful material for toys in so many ways, but the toxicity issue always makes me a little nervous.
