Sustainable Holidays

Sustainable Holidays

Sustainable is not a phrase often associated with the holidays. People often indulge during the holidays. Whether it is sweet treats or gifts, most of us go to the extreme during this season. American consumer spending on holiday gifts and other holiday expenses has increased over the previous year. And with the rise of e-commerce, holiday gifts are just a click away.

Sustainable choices are available

But sustainable choices are now a lot easier during the holidays. When it comes to sustainable gifts for kids, most preschoolers and young children are pretty easy to please. They haven't been as influenced by friends and the media as older kids, so secondhand gifting is a great option for them. Pretty much any form of used toy or game, building blocks, dolls, art supplies, or electronic toy will be a big hit.

Toycycle provides all of these types of sustainable toys for your children. The most eco-friendly toy is the one that is reused, over and over again. The same goes for baby gear of every kind. Shopping in Toycycle's online kids' thrift store, you get not only cost savings but also waste reduction and other environmental benefits of shopping used.

Here are some great choices for fun, and learning. With the Animal Adventures Dinosaur Play Set. With tons of activities, it's sure to provide hours of fun. With nine built-in games, it provides hours of fun! Life on Earth Dominoes by Eeboo introduces kids to the classic game with charming animal-themed tiles for game play. You can play classic dominoes, create a mix and match game, or just enjoy some imaginative play with the animal characters. The PlanToys Slide n' Go Dollhouse is an toy engineering marvel!
