2022 - Toys that Last
Children lose interest in 25% of their toys after one week, and by the end of January, around 35% of Christmas toys are no longer loved*. No matter what they're made of, toys that don't get used are not sustainable and end up as landfill. This is why the theme for the inaugural World Sustainable Toy Day is Toys That Last.
