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!

all it took was one conversation, one look, one smile, one laugh and I was gone. Gone into oblivion. Disappeared  into some alternate universe for just me and him. His eyes were captivating and his words were infectious. As I fell harder the image of myself I once saw was slowly fading to make room for his.. He became everything I wanted. He became my life in more ways than one. I opened up to him. The was way he made it so easy was almost like casting a spell on me. I no longer had control over my own body. It was all him. But soon our love became my love for him..our hearts became further and further apart because little ddid I know our love was non existaant and it was  always just my love. my love that he used to his advantage to get to my heart.. and once he got there he stole it. he stole my heart tore it apart and left me to clean up the mess. He was a criminal.

So I guess I'll take w shot at this,   I am Mount Everest, Steep, Up and Downs. The world around,  walking all over me,  I am of whispers. A misunderstood mountain, They pray for safety that I won’t kill them That cannot help them.  I am not evil,  I am not a killer, I don’t hurt others for joy. I act strong and hid in the fog, But I can’t always hide. I break, I fall Avalanches occur from my surface.   I don’t mean to kill I don’t mean to break, I’m sorry if you become my victim I don’t mean it I am veiled in the clouds and fog No one knowing how I feel. You may ask, But I never tell I may regret not talking, but you don’t get it. I am misunderstood, I am shown to be strong, I am called mighty, I am high, To most I cannot fall. But no one gets it, I break, I fall, I hurt Just as those who climb me, I feel pain, I suffer   I am a mountain but I do cry Those storms that some die in, They blamed them for testing me I do not mean it I cannot help if I feel pain I am me, I am like you I have hills to climb, Life’s a climb, I am a climb There are steeps to overcome I may not make it, I may fall, I will fall Attempt to get up, May fail   I am not always the strong mountain, The one others come for help I need help to, You may cry to me I cry away from others, hidden I show no emotion, I store it But it explodes, I shatter, I show the true colors of my feelings I fall and it may seem like most ignore There are those who stop and help I am Mount Everest High and Steep, I to have to climb, The Mountain of Life

Welcome to Kidzworld, how are you? Here are some tips on how to survi- I mean, have a good time. 1, no swearing or saying copyrighted company names. they will just get replaced with hashtags (i.e ####) 2, if you're on chat, no cyberbullying (this one isn't from personal experience, but still!)! 3, if people start to get annoying on chat, just block 'em.
