It’s play time for the kids, but do you really know exactly what materials your kids are playing with? Maybe you don’t realize that Little Junior’s toy choo-choo train is railroading right over Mother Earth, causing the same type of environmental damage associated with an actual train. More parents are realizing the need for their kids’ toys to be eco-friendly, and that’s where Laurie Hyman has stepped in.

Hyman helps to heads Green Toys Inc., a leader in eco-friendly and socially responsible children’s toys since being founded in 2007. In fact, Hyman received the 2012 Wonder Women of Toys Entrepreneur of the Year Award in February. The award is given to a woman who has made a major contribution in the toy or children’s entertainment industries.

Hyman, whose business partner is Robert von Goeben, is passionate about the Green Toys Inc. business because she is driven to ensure that customers have a reliable and planet-friendly source for their kids’ play items. The company’s manufacturing processes are known to decrease greenhouse gas emissions as well as save energy.

In addition, the company uses only environmentally friendly raw materials and therefore upholds the value of recycling. Take advantage of new Green Toys Mini Fastbacks and Green Toys Mini Vehicles for boys, or consider a Green Toys Salad Set for girls who love to play cook. These toys are not only manufactured from 100 percent recycled plastic but also are made right here in the United States.

In Hyman’s book, it is never too early to teach children about the value of the earth. With Green Toys Inc.’s products, you’re actually making your child’s next birthday or Christmas Day an “Earth Day” he or she can find exhilarating year-round.
