While you will be hard-pressed to find much plastic at Citizen Kid, we are proud to point out that any plastic products we carry are free of any harmful phthalates, and almost every plastic product we carry is made from recycled materials.

Here are some examples:

Here is a wonderful Tea Set from Green Toys. It’s made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic.

Here is another product from Green Toys – a Sand Play Set.

Lastly, Eco Trucks from Sprig have been one of our best-sellers. They are made from “sprigwood” which is a combination of recycled plastic and reclaimed wood. They feel like plastic but smell like wood!
