The Eco toy Library

Objavljeno: Srijeda, 08 Prosinac 2021

Brief project description: What is it about and what is particularly socially innovative?

The Eco Toy Library is informal and operates on a voluntary basis, providing free membership to children who can make a donation and come borrow toys with their parents. The first one to open in Croatia was in Knin, afterwards reaching 7 cities. It helps parents save on buying toys and raises children’s awareness of the importance of sharing, preserving the environment and sustainable waste management by encouraging reuse and creating additional content. End user approach and project realization are innovative. With the support of institutions, associations, volunteers and the media, it’s expanding to organized collection and distribution of toys, books and more.
