Sustainability-In-Action: Dinosaur Hill is an environmentally conscious children’s toy store with approximately 75% eco-friendly inventory. All of their clothing is organic, and many of their toys are made from post-consumer recycled plastic and reclaimed wood. This toy store uses green cleaning solutions, making the space a safe, chemical-free environment for children and adults alike. Dinosaur Hill recycles all packaging, and minimizes waste by donating any excess materials to the local USPS store.
Sustainability Goals: Dinosaur Hill plans to research automatic light sensors for their stock room. They are also looking into recycling their bottles and cans in addition to their cardboard. Finally, Dinosaur Hill intends to purchase 100% post-consumer recycled kraft paper bags.
