    Bioplastic

  • These multifunctional building cups stimulate kids motor skills and imagination, can be used both indoors and outdoors. The tiny play cups are stackable, can be used as moulds and cutters for baking cakes or modelling clay. The small holes in the bottom of the cups also make them ideal for playing with water in the bath or sandbox. 

    All toys are made of sugar cane and bamboo fibers. This makes the plastic 100% sustainable and 100% recyclable - to protect the earth on which the child will grow up.

    Even with constant water exposure these toys are specifically designed to avoid crooks and crevices that can trap bacteria, cause mould or hard water staining. Just shake off excess water and air dry!

    Toys can also be placed in the dishwasher (on the top rack) for quick sanitation.

    Recommended for children from the age of 10 months +

    All dantoy products comply with the European EN71 standard.

    Dantoy bioplastic is made of at least 90% sugarcane (ethanol). Ethanol, a form of alcohol, is extracted from sugarcane, after which it is used to make bioplastic - a sustainable 100% recyclable raw material. The manufacture of bioplastics reduces carbon emissions because it is cultivated on controlled, pesticide-free plantations in central and southern Brazil.

    The sugarcane used for dantoy bioplastics grows in plantations in the southern and central regions of Brazil, more than 2,500 km from the Amazon region. The enlargement of areas for cultivating sugarcane is managed by “Sugarcane Agroecological Zoning”, formed by Brazil’s federal government. The harvested sugarcane is conveyed by train for further processing, which is more eco-friendly than being transported by lorries.

    Sugarcane can be harvested several times a year. New sugarcane plants are planted every five to seven years. The fields are harvested every six to twelve months enabling them to be classified as a sustainable raw material. Sugarcane absorbs carbon dioxide from the air, thereby minimising the greenhouse effect. For the manufacture of bioplastic, the carbon emissions accounts are positive from the budding of the plant until it is manufactured into bioplastic. For each kilo of manufactured bioplastic, 3.09 kg of carbon dioxide are removed from the atmosphere.

    Dantoy’s packaging is all made from recycled cardboard. Their toys are made to last and are approved for contact with foods, microwave safe, dishwasher safe, frost-proof and contains no toxins. These are quality products with a long service life and they are not manufactured to be biodegradable. If they were biodegradable, they would not be durable.
