What is an eco-friendly or "green" toy?
"An eco-friendly or "green" toy is both environmentally and socially responsible.
It's accountable to, and respectful of, the places and people that provide and use it.
The development of ecologically safer products, recyclable and biodegradable packaging, energy-efficient operations, and better pollution controls are all aspects of producing a green product. Here at Imagination Box Co., we strive to implement as many environmentally respectful practices as possible, all the way down to using recycled office paper!
Our products are manufactured in a facility about 70 miles from us, allowing us greater quality control and lessening our carbon footprint on the planet.
We believe in contributing as much as possible to our community. Our toys are assembled by people with special needs, teaching them new skills to bring forward into society.
Our products are made from 45% post-consumer recycled materials and are 100% recyclable!
We care a great deal about contributing all we can to sustaining planet Earth for generations to come. So, when you buy, buy green! It's a gift that keeps on giving!"
