Celebrating Earth Day with Environmentally Conscious Toys

Happy Earth Day! April 22nd is a significant occasion to honour our planet and all its wonders. To celebrate Earth Day 2024, take action by considering eco-friendly toys for your little ones!

Introducing eco-friendly toys to your child is an excellent method to instill values of sustainability and environmental stewardship from an early age. Opting for sustainable toys not only ensures longevity due to their durability, but also guarantees that their materials are ethically sourced.

What is Earth Day?

Each year on April 22nd, individuals worldwide unite to celebrate Earth Day. Originating in 1970, Earth Day transformed into a global phenomenon by 1990. Today, over 1 billion people participate in Earth Day festivities.

Our Favourite Eco-Friendly Toys

  1. Coastal Clean-Up Train Set

Discover the fun of recycling with our Coastal Clean Up Train Set, comprised of 70 play pieces. As the train traverses through a giant sandcastle tunnel, beach huts, and sections of the beach; children learn about recycling. After the journey, kids can sort the magnetic pieces into appropriate recycling bins (cardboard, metal, plastic) or mix and match them in the recycling book – which is full of child-friendly recycling facts. Crafted from responsibly sourced rubberwood, this wooden train set embodies eco-friendliness.
