Plasto I'm Green 22cm Tipper Truck
This tipper truck is made by Plasto, bearing the Finnish Flag of Quality. The truck is 22cm in length and can be used at the beach, in the garden, or down the hallway!
All Plasto toys are manufactured in Finland. The toy factory was founded in 1954 and is located in the beautiful Åland islands (in the Finnish archipelago).
The plastic is a bioplastic, produced from sugarcane, which is a 100% renewable raw material.
Sugarcane ethanol has emerged as an important ingredient to substitute for petroleum in the production of plastic. These so-called “bioplastics” have the same physical and chemical properties as regular plastic (the most common type is known technically as PET) and maintain full recycling capabilities.
Benefits of Bioplastics
Renewable - Sugarcane polyethylene replaces 30 percent or more of the petroleum that would otherwise be used to manufacture the plastic.
Lower carbon footprint - Each metric ton of bio - polyethylene produced avoids the emission of 2 to 2.5 metric tons of carbon dioxide on a lifecycle basis.
Use of bioplastics is still developing but the Finnish company Plasto Toys has taken a huge leap forward with their “I AM GREEN” range to not only protect future generations but to also protect the current generation of little people.
