Did you know that more than 40 million toys were thrown away last year?
And of that 40 million, 13 million toys ended up in the dustbin?
The numbers are quite incredible aren’t they? I was pretty shocked when I read them especially since I am in the toy rental space! I now realize that I have to do something about this because if toy buyers aren’t recycling their children’s toys then I can’t sell toys/Rentoys with a clear conscience.
And so this initiative was born!
So How do I Recycle toys?
When our children receive ‘new’ toys they are a source of endless fun and amusement. They’re faces light up at the prospect of something new to play with. Children don’t really care whether they’re brand new or not, they’re new to them and that’s all that matters to them.
When your child outgrows his or her toys they can then be turned into ‘new’ toys for other children who will again see them as a source of endless fun.
Instead of throwing away unbroken toys you can donate them to a good cause. You can also get your children involved by asking them to sort out what toys they don’t play with. Then come to a decision together about donating the toys. This can create the perfect chance for discussion on the environment and recycling as well as helping good causes.
Here’s what you can do –
Rentoys.in has tied up with an NGO which is a non-profit organization that has been set up with the aim of providing toys to all children.
Our aim in this is –
• To ensure that children from under privileged backgrounds receive toys as well
• To sensitize and advocate amongst individuals from all sections of society the need and importance of the right to play and the right to leisure for all children.
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will have the toys collected from your home for this cause!
