I don’t know why this is, but people lose and throw away toys like mad. Try taking a walk around your neighborhood and you would be surprised at the amount of toys in the street. Check out your neighbors trash and see what they are throwing away. I have collected rubber ducks, balls, dolls and more in my picking up trash walks around the neighborhood. When you think about how many non-biodegradable broken toys are thrown away every year…..
I just gotta Eco Ya:
- Over 40 Million Toys Are thrown away every year (UK) Source
- Each year, some 5,000 new toys enter the market-place (Source)
- Some toys depending on the plastic can be recycled and melted down.
- Depending on the condition, toys can be donated. Many charities take broken toys.
Fortunately we have artists like Robert Bradford who have reused toys and made into some art .
