The average toy uses five milk jugs to create. It all starts here at a processing plant where they are shredded, filtered, and cleaned.

The milk jugs flakes are then sorted for color and are reprocessed into pellets. This is when the fun starts. Lets go and play! At another factory, the recycled material is mixed with a food safe coloring, melted at a high temperature, and injected into a mold.

A different mold is used for each individual piece. All of the pieces are then assembled. No glue, screws, paint, or metal are used.

And thats how you make your basic trash into toy treasure.
