Win a 15-piece Green Ostrich Recycled Milk Jug Toolset 8/11

Are you aware of the toys being made by recycling milk jugs? Since helping save the environment, and keeping my grandkids healthy, is important for their future, I was glad and impressed when I found Green Ostrich Green Toys.



I love Green Ostrich Green Toys, and when kids can use their imagination it makes them even better. My granddaughter, Kristen, loves to use her new Green Ostrich Recycled Milk Jug Toolset to work on her bike. I couldn't believe it when she said she needed to fix her bike with her new tools. She does it often, too.   

This tool set is USA made, sturdy, but safe. It's for ages 2 and up. It retails for $24.56. Green Ostrich helps people make changes, not sacrifices. They help people live well and refresh the Earth.


Description: Dishwasher-safe toy tool box, Phillips screwdriver, flat screwdriver, hammer, saw, wrench, pliers, 2 two-hole connectors, 2 nails, 2 bolts, and 2 nuts made from 100% recycled, curbside-collected milk containers sorted by local recycling companies. The packaging is even 100% recycled and printed with soy ink.

Green Toys creates clean #2 high-density polyethylene (HDPE), one of the safest, cleanest plastics in the world. On average, every pound of recycled milk jugs used in the making of these toys saves energy equal to 3,000 AAA batteries, and saves enough electricity to power a TV for three weeks or keep a laptop computer running for a month.
SOURCE: US Department of Energy, US Environmental Protection Agency.

Why did they pick an ostrich?
 The ostrich is one of the most Earth-friendly animals in the world. Ostriches are durable; true dinosaurs, they have roamed this planet for over 120 million years. They typically live at least 40 years in the wild, and they are known to live as long as 70 years in captivity.

Ostriches are also memorable; frankly, they are funny-looking. That was enough for us. We offer Earth-friendly, durable, memorable products that replace common disposable products. So, our products and an ostrich have a lot in common.
