Donate old toys to deserving children
Stop the mass production of toy waste through reusing!
Who We Are
Our non-profit based in Silicon Valley CA aims to bring toys to children in need by giving toys another lifespan. All our toys come from generous families who have donated their toys and are distributed to underprivileged youth throughout the Bay Area.
Why We Operate
At The Toy Project, we aim to encourage the reuse of toys for a better planet and a better society.
An estimated amount of 14 billion pounds of waste make their way to our oceans and landfills every year. This problem is not stopping. As the world continues to mass produce, the waste discarded continues to hurt our planet. Children’s toys are a particularly large contributor to waste, in part because children grow out of toys at a fast rate. We offer a solution to this problem. By donating used toys to us, we lower the rate at which toys are discarded and pollute our world, and instead offer these toys to other children who need them. Not only are we helping the planet, but we are making toys more accessible to low income families who wouldn’t normally be able to provide these toys for their children. Our hope is that people will start to see the beauty of reusing and expanding the lifespan of toys instead of choosing to throw them out.
How YOU Can Help
1. Utilize our company! If you have any toys that you would like to get rid of, click the Donate button on the top of the website and have your toys be reused instead of thrown away!
2. Lower the demand for new toys by reusing! By using our company you are helping stop the mass production of toys. By donating and using used toys instead of new, you are keeping more waste from being produced, and then eventually thrown into a landfill. In the event that you need to buy something, try to buy it recycled or reused.
3. Use sustainable swaps for things like shampoo bottles, toothbrushes, plastic bags, water bottles, and packaged meals. Check out our recommendations in the menu bar by clicking "Sustainable Resources."
