Greenovations: Big Toys – Big Toys Playground Equipment

What is sustainability? Developed as a part of the concept of sustainable development by the Brundtland Commission of the United Nations in 1987, sustainability seeks to “[meet] the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Personally, I love how this definition captures the notion of selflessness in seeking to promote a beneficial and productive future for our kids, grandkids, and all future generations.
It is this very notion that I imagine to be at the core of the Big Toys Company of Olympia, Washington. Big Toys manufactures its Big Toys Playground Equipment, which is unlike any other playground equipment I’ve ever seen.
Seemingly designed for maximum enjoyment with minimal environmental impact, Big Toys Playground Equipment is constructed of 100% post-consumer recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE), FSC-certified wood, and recycled steel.
Additionally, Big Toys takes back each and every piece of their playground equipment at the end of its useful life cycle. Big Toys warranties its moving parts for 2 years and its metal and solid plastic components for 50 years.
So the next time you find yourself choosing to install a playground, consider future generations’ needs and incorporate sustainability into the process by choosing Big Toys Playground Equipment.
