Green Chemistry = Healthier Products

Community Playthings is free of BPA and PVC. Why should you care?

Recent science has discovered chemicals in our everyday environment that may compromise our health. Tiny amounts of Bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates--the softeners in polyvinyl chloride (PVC)—found in our bloodstreams have been linked to modern ills like obesity, diabetes, or early puberty. And, of course, children are the most vulnerable.

These materials are in such common use that it’s hard to find alternatives, but we’re committed to the heavy lifting. We will allow no known hazards in our products, but only greener, healthier materials for your children.
