Waterloo, Ontario (PRWEB) September 9, 2008
Stortz & Associates Inc is proud to announce the fall introduction of two revolutionary new toys lines, made in North America using recycled plastic.
Sprig Toys™ are vehicles from Sprigwood ™, a child-safe bio-composite material derived from recycled wood and reclaimed food-grade plastic like margarine containers. The vehicles harness the natural energy of a child's push- and - pump action play to power lights and other electronics - all without batteries. Sprig Discovery Rig and Side Kicks are made in Midland, Ontario, Canada.
Green Toys™ eco-friendly toys are made of 100% recycled plastic milk containers. The Green Toys line includes a cookware and dish set, tea set, sand play kit and more. Made in California, USA, Green Toys™ products are non-toxic, save energy, reduce landfill waste and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Green Toys Inc. has also extended its environmental efforts into its packaging by using recycled paper products with no traditional plastics or films.
"As part of our green initiatives, we are actively sourcing toys with North American content," says Linda Stortz, co-founder of Stortz & Associates. "We fell in love with the Sprig Toys™ line the moment we saw it, and are proud to have it be our first "Made in Canada" line that features recycled materials. The Green Toys™ line will be a timeless classic for every child."
Linda also states that "these lines reinforce our company mission to source toys that minimize the impact on the environment by reusing, reducing and recycling to minimize the carbon footprint in manufacturing or delivery. These toys will help parents educate their children to take care of the environment."
