I have long been a fan of companies like Green Toys and Terracycle, which upcycle materials to create new, functional goods. So I was thrilled to find out that the manufacturer of the Dandelion brand of natural and organic toys, tableware, and apparel launched Re-Play, a new brand of tableware made from recycled milk jugs.
I’m always in the market for new cups, plates, and utensils that are earth-friendly, safe, practical, and affordable, and this line completely fits the bill. Re-Play products are priced competitively with traditional plastic, yet they are free from BPA, PVC and phthalates.
Re-Play products are made from curbside-collected HPDE plastic, often found in milk jugs. The recycled plastic is sanitized using an FDA-approved wash line that cleans the plastic and removes anything that was absorbed by the plastic. The product packaging is also made from recycled paperboard.
Sturdy, cute, safe, affordable, and good for the planet – dare I say I’ve found the perfect line of kids tableware.
Disclosure: This company gave me a sample for review. Regardless, my opinions are honest, as are Sam’s. See my full disclosure here.
