How much of plastic do we buy our children every year ? And then, we the same people, wish that our children would never have to deal with plastic waste in their lifetimes.
When Helen Rogan, in Queensland Australia, received a ton of plastic toys as presents for her daughters' birthdays, she just HAD to do something about it. Helen, mother of Poppy and Daisy, designed high quality eco friendly and experiential toys.
