Wow, have fun playing and help the environment too! Our Cookware and Dining Set is made of 100% Recycled Milk Jugs AND is made by Green Toys in the USA. It is environmentally friendly, produces fewer greenhouse gases, saves energy, and is safe and non-toxic, and water proof to boot! This 27 piece set includes a stock pot with lid, skillet, 4 place settings (fork/knife/spoon), 4 plates, 4 bowls, and 4 cups. Plates are green, pot and cups are blue, skillet is orange, utensils are yellow, and bowls are lavender - sure to please all children. The plates are a good size at 6" across. The bowls are 4" across, and the tea cups are 2" across. The Pot is 4 1/2 inches across (not including the width of the handles).
These are FDA approved for use with real food and the coloring is also FDA approved. There is no yucky stuff in this plastic that will cause any harm to your child. These are not dishwasher or microwave safe.
We use recycled milk containers as the main ingredient in creating our toys. Yes, the exact plastic milk jugs that you and your family drink from every day. When you finish your milk and toss the container in the recycling bin, these milk containers are collected at your curb by a local recycling company, who then sorts them from all the other types of plastic. Next, the milk containers are reprocessed into super clean fresh plastic. For you plastic geeks, the plastic material we use is called high-density polyethylene (or HDPE). This material is considered one of the safest, cleanest plastics around.
Toy Safety and Testing
Green Toys products are tested by nationally recognized, independent, third-party labs (located, yes, in the USA.) They contain no traceable amounts of Phthalates or BPA. They are also designed without any external coatings, eliminating the fear of lead paint.
Green Toys environmental mission even extends to our packaging. We strive to minimize packaging, and all of our boxes use as little material as possible. All Green Toys products are packaged in recycled corrugated boxes with no plastics, cellophane or twist-ties, and are 100% recyclable. So, not only are they earth-friendly and ready for your recycling bin, they are really easy to open for those little fingers just itching to get at the toys!!
