Von der Wiege bis zur Bahre: Das epische Leben eines Spielzeugs.

From the cradle to the Bahrre: the epic life of a toy.

From the cradle to the Bahrre: the epic life of a toy.

Hello dear slime enthusiasts! Already thought about which path ours Children's toy take before it ends up and what happens afterwards? There is a story behind every small toy car or teddy bear that can bring us many surprising knowledge! Grab your favorite toys because we take you on an exciting journey!

1. The birth of a toy: production and resources 🏭🌳

The production of toys needs resources. Regardless of whether it is wood, plastic or metal, the raw material extraction has an impact on our environment. Researchers from the University of Oxford have found that the production of plastic toys releases around 90 million tons of CO2 per year. Recycling can help reduce this number by reducing the need for new raw materials.

2. Many years of joy: use and wear 🕰️🎮

Children love playing with their toys. But even the best time goes by. A report by the Federal Environment Office shows that an average of the first "toy generation change" takes place after 3-5 years. This means that old children's toys are sorted out, often also disposed of. But instead of just throwing it away, we could recycle or donate it and thus extend the life cycle.

3. The last curtain: disposal and the second chance ♻️🎭

As already mentioned, can toy be recycled. The German Ministry of the Environment emphasizes that the right disposal is essential, especially in electronic toys, otherwise harmful substances could get into the environment. The cool thing? The recycling can breathe new life into old children's toys! Old plastic parts are made, for example, new products or even plastic granules for new toys.

In the end, dear Slime friends: Every time we hold a toy in our hand, we should be aware that there is a long story behind it. From the "cradle to the Bahre" - let's make this cycle consciously and respectfully designed. Because with a little prudence and care we can ensure that our favorite toys not only give us pleasure, but also do something good for the environment! 💚🌏🪀🎨
