I'm actually stuck between marketing ploy and them being a good idea. Companies all over the world are suddenly "going green." It's like its a bit of a fad. People like this idea of "going green" whether or not the company is actually keeping true to that promise or not.

I have a green Lelo Liv vibrator, but I don't think that is what you mean x)

I honestly haven't done any research on "green" toys. It could be a marketing fad or it could be related to whether the toy's components can be recycled. I hope it's the latter because I expect one day I might want to recycle a toy.

A great idea

Definitely a ploy. I wonder what kind of carbon footprint the average toy has after being sourced, manufactured, marketed and then shipped around the world?

I think it depends on the toy's material and manufacturing process.

I'm not so sure it's not a marketing ploy...after all, mass production is hardly ever "green."

more manufacturers should focus on green materials and recycling.

I think companies can use it as a marketing ploy. That's why it's important to research companies that claim to be "green."

It's a good idea in theory, but I'm pretty sure it's just a marketing ploy.

I think they're a good idea, but I don't usually buy into them too much.

Tantus toys are green and they mean it. Not only do they last forever, but they even use environmentally friendly cleaners and things in their factory. You have to dig past the marketing ploys and find what is actually "green" and what is just advertising.

I lean towards marketing ploy. In particular, I'm really not sure that the rechargeable batteries are better than just using batteries (which are now safe to throw out). A rechargeable battery can't be safely thrown out if it dies, and is using electricity any better?

I do appreciate the companies that make recyclable and minimal packaging, though!

It's a good idea if it is something they are serious about I think.

Honestly, I do not belive in "organic" nor do I belive in "green". I do not belive companies would put a lot of effort and money into something that does not bring profit directly.

That's good to know about Tantus. Yeah, I don't buy that a toy is "green" just because it is rechargeable, but toy makers using better environmental practices is a good thing.
