Celebrate EARTH WEEK by donating your old plastic toys!

In an effort to make a meaningful difference, emotionally and environmentally, Teich Toys & Books has teamed up with Second Chance Toys during Earth Week to distribute gently used plastic toys to children in need.

Multiple research studies confirm that toys inspire play which is critical to the healthy development of children. Yet, many plastic toys are disposed of when they could be enjoyed by a growing number of children who go without. According to the National Center for Children in Poverty, nearly 12.5 million children under the age of 6 in the United States live in low-income families; nearly a quarter of these children live in families with annual incomes below the federal poverty level. Given the nature of plastic, these toys show little signs of wear and are still in good working condition. When these perfectly useable toys are thrown out instead of given to those who could benefit, they become waste in a landfill, take up a lot of space and do not biodegrade.
 
We will be collecting gently used plastic toys between April 12th & 22nd at Teich Toys & Books 573 Hudson Street NYC.

Your donation will make a big difference to the environment and to children in need.
 

Donated toys should:

• be plastic
• be clean (wipe down if necessary)            
• have working batteries    
• contain all parts/pieces (please attach loose parts to toy in baggie)
• No plush toys, please
