When children toys deteriorate, or the children grow , parents usually opted for discarding them . We lose them an opportunity to make the family a little more supportive and often unknowingly pollute the environment more than necessary .
In many households collect old toys , broken or outdated siemplemente . Children no longer used , or are elderly , or have new toys more interesting. Recycle or donate toys is the best option to help other children and take care of the environment.
Donating toys to other children
Especially at Christmastime , antique toys are condemned to oblivion. New toys arrive home and the kids (and parents) do not remember the last year. Sitting family with child make a classification and decide which donated , plus rewarding , we help awaken feelings of solidarity in children. Instead of going straight to the trash maybe we should think :
Neighbors: Do we have kids in the neighborhood who could use our toys ? Maybe other friends of the child? How about toy exchanges between families?
School: in many schools services are collected toys. We can , but , hang a sign ourselves whether any family needs .
NGOs: especially at Christmas , many NGOs collect toys pair underprivileged children . Campaigns are also special civic centers , churches , hospitals ...
Teaching kids to recycle toys
In many households throw toys to plastic container . This is a mistake because the toys are usually made with plastic type difierente not within the same circutio that containers and cartons . We must take them to Green Point .
If you look , many of our kid 's toys have batteries and electronics that are the biggest polluters . Some have even crossed the trash sticker , which indicates you should not throw away the normal circuit . Parents must " dismantle " the toy and throw the parts corresponding container pollutants (such as batteries ) .
If at the end we decided to donate old toys our child , and we want an ngo trust, we refer to this association. It analyzes the transparency of NGOs to help parents decide
