Upcycled Play

A demand for economical toys sees products crafted from recycled goods rise

Implications - Children tend to become bored of toys quickly, which has prompted the development of playthings crafted from upcycled goods to help reduce both cost and waste. This shift sees eco-friendly consumers instilling positive lessons in children earlier, which can, in turn, expand the industry trend from niche to more mainstream.
