Playful, educational and environmentally conscious, the Safe Seas Sea Plane and Submarine float, they're durable and made of 100% recycled plastic. The earth and ocean friendly packaging has interesting environment-saving facts (such as making us aware that every pound of recycled plastic Green Toys uses saves enough energy to keep a computer running for a month, a TV running for three months and saves energy equal to 3,000 AAA batteries) . The seaplane and submarine bath/sandbox/pool/beach toys include "All the Way to the Ocean"— a story about how our actions impact all aspects of our planet, especially the ocean and its inhabitants—prompting our young testers to ask questions and become very interested in cleaning up our family's act. A percentage of each $20 Safe Seas toy benefits Sustainable Surf, a non-profit environmental charity dedicated to protecting the oceans.
