Plastic toys are commonplace in most households, and they are some of the hardest things to recycle. One way to keep plastic toys out of landfills and to give them a new life is to donate them. Second Chance Toys collects lightly used plastic toys and distributes them to disadvantaged children across the United States. The organization has major toy collection drives twice a year, and it looks for toys that are clean, in working order and have no missing parts. The next drive is in December, so take the time to start collecting. Learn more at secondchancetoys.org.
