Greenzys: Eco-Friendly Toys

Jan 20, 2011

Greenzys are a brand-new kind of toy – one that’s friendly for the earth! They’re cute, cuddly and all about a good cause! Each time you buy a Greenzy – which are made from natural materials and non-toxic dyes – a tree is planted!





Green Guys

Greenzys are super soft and super cute, and they’re made from materials that won’t harm the earth! Not only that, each time you purchase one of these lovable green characters, a tree is planted!

Cute Characters

Now, let’s meet the Greenzys!

  • Peat: Born in Antarctica, this penguin recycles, reduses and reduces everything! Peat’s fave green activity is making his own popsicles – they’re yummy and don’t need any packaging!
  • Violet: This shy giraffe is a total genius, and knows everything there is to know about being green! Her fave green activity is teaching others have to be green!
  • Yew Yew: This panda bear from China does a bit too much worrying, but definitely has what it takes to be a Greenzy! His fave green activity is to grow bamboo, which gives off lots of oxygen and prevents erosion.
  • Willow: Willow the elephant is from India. A born leader, she treasures her Earth home and wants to take care of it. Her face green activity is collecting rain to water her plants and using her trunk as a waterspout!

Greenzys’ Green Tips

  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Use less when you can. Share a magazine or book with your brother sister or friend. Ask your parents to add recycling in your house and talk to your teachers about recycling in class.
  • Donate unused toys, books, and clothes. Ask your parents if you can donate toys, books and clothes you don’t want anymore. They’ll get a new home and make another kid happy!
  • Rechargeable Batteries. Use rechargeable batteries for all your electronics and toys.You’ll keep hundreds of batteries from ending up in a landfill. And if you can’t use rechargeable batteries, then make sure to recycle them when they die.
  • Don’t litter. Littering is bad news for your neighborhood, and for the planet. Litter dirties up the streets and can pollute our oceans.
  • Get Out of the Car. Encourage your parents to let the family take walks or ride bikes together instead of taking the car. It means less pollution and is good exercise for everyone.
  • Turn off the lights. Switch off the lights every time you leave the room. If you see an empty room in your house with the lights on, turn them off.
  • Save Water. Turn off the water when you’re brushing your teeth. You can save hundreds of gallons of water each year if you just have the water on for the rinse. Compete with your family for the fastest shower!
  • Buy Local at Farmer’s Markets. Ask your parents to take you to a farmer’s market. They’re fun to walk around and you’re helping local farmers make a living.
  • Organic Gardens. Start an organic garden at your school. Talk to teachers and your classmates to get them excited. You can turn your school into an outdoor classroom as you grow fresh food.
  • Start a compost bin. Some food and yard waste can be composted rather than thrown away. Ask your parents if you can get a compost bin, and it is a good excuse to have your own worm farm!

So i'm a pretty positive person and love to be positive all the time. And sometimes i hide my emotions from my sister and family, who are all also very positive and supportive. I don't know why i do it, i just don't like to cry in front of them. I usually wait till my sister is asleep and everyone is downstairs then i lock myself in the bathroom and cry my heart out, then i dry my eyes and walked out like nothing has happened. Is this a problem?  Or is it just my teenage brain making my act all weird? Please give me some advice

(Requested by @snoopynwoodstock123 ) (Sorry this one's shorter than usual. I wanted it to be to the point, but it was fun to write. Enjoy!) Shin and Oka were bent over an array of smoking potions, dark vials, and musty powders, arranging them in the intricate patterns of ritual. Silent except for panicked, labored breathing, Oka grabbed a vial of a sickeningly sweet, dark red liquid and began tracing the lines of charcoal pencil already drawn onto the stone floor. Oka closed her eyes for a second, holding her breath. “Shin, hand me the book.”  He did so with trembling hands, and Oka turned to the proper page of the dusty book. The pages almost crumbled in her hands because of age and wear. The exotic and disgusting ingredients, the pentagram drawn upon the floor, and the pages and pages of Latin text proved that this was not your every-day ritual, but instead the last ditch effort of defeated prey to escape from a hunter that prowled throughout the hallways, prodded on by insane lust. For the past six hours, a first year student had been rampaging throughout the school, slaughtering all in her path, and, after being contacted by the police, she took hostages of all surviving the initial attack. Oka and Shin had just managed to escape and begin to prepare an attack of the supernatural kind. Oka took a deep breath and began reading the accursed text. Shin held his breath as the words on the water-damaged page began to glow a faint red, glowing brighter and brighter and pulsating like a heartbeat as the seconds ticked by, each feeling like an eternity. Suddenly, they heard a sound that sent chills like spiders of ice racing down their backs: a giggle, a laugh from just beyond the door and footsteps prowling the surrounding halls. There was a monster lurking outside with an intent to kill. Oka’s voice lowered to a barest whisper, but she could not stop the chant, or they would have to begin the process over again, and that would take time they didn’t have. The footsteps grew closer, each foot fall sounding like a sledgehammer in the silence of the corpse-ridden school, echoing in the ears of the two hidden students. Shin began to tremble, and Oka wanted comfort him so badly, but she could not put down the candle of dripping black wax in her hand or murmur any words except for the ancient Latin text. Then, with a glint in his eye of fierce determination, Shin stood up, and Oka’s eyes followed him curiously while her mouth continued to usher forth the chant. What was he-? “Oka,” he whispered. “She- no, it is going to find us before the ritual is complete.” Oka’s eyes suddenly widened in panic as she began to predict in her mind what he would say next. Shin continued, “I won’t be of much help in the fight, but I can be a distraction.” Shin held up is hands to try and calm Oka as she began to shake her head furiously, but unable to say any words to stop him. “It’ll buy enough time for you to achieve power enough to stop her. Goodbye, my friend.” Shin bent down and gently kissed Oka on the forehead. Oka screamed internally, begging him not to go, but he could not hear her thoughts. With the fate of a martyr before him, Shin reached up to the door that was framed by streams of light, and at the last second, he turned back to Oka and smiled sadly. He blinked, and a single tear rolled down his face. Then his head turned back to his fate. He reached up, and pushed the door open. The last seconds he was in view felt like slow motion as Shin stepped away from the dark room into the harsh, unyielding light that enveloped him like a gateway to wherever Shin was going after death. Then, the door swung shut. Oka could only watch the doors close and hear the echoing screams of laughter and the disgusting sounds of a knife penetrating human flesh. Screams were swiftly silenced but ended with bubbling croaks. Oh, Shin, she thought in agony to herself as tears streamed down her face. Shin, why did you have to do that? Curse this ritual that prevented me from saving him, from stopping him! It’s all my fault, oh, Shin!! A final, gasping gurgle issued from the space outside, signaling Shin’s death.  Oka said the ending words of the ritual with gasping, sobbing breaths. A dark mist began to swirl, like living shadows, and Oka could feel the rush of strength and passion that was poured into her form as arms, pale as ghosts with fingernails red as blood, erupted from the ground like hellish flowers in a circle around the now-floating Oka. They responded to her thought and will, twitching with anticipation of vengeance. Oka could feel the strength and speed coursing through these new extensions to her form. With a mere flick of her finger, the arms reached up and tore the door separating Oka from her enemy effortlessly, leaving the doorway dusty and open. Yandere-chan, the monster, a psychopath for love, stepped through the door way, covered with the blood of one of Oka’s only friends. She looked at Oka while stroking her dripping blade with the look of someone exhilarated by the thought of a true fight at last, and Oka screamed with tormented laughter somehow more nightmarish than Yandere-chan’s own. This was going to be a hell of a fight.
