Dantoy Launch Brand New Toy Line – Created from Recycled Maritime Materials

In 2018 dantoy launched its BIO-line which was made from sugarcane. In 2020 dantoy launched their GREEN BEAN line, which is products made from internal waste. Last year in 2021 dantoy launched their Take Back Strategy, in which they collect damaged dantoy toys to turn them into brand new toys.

Now in 2022, dantoy has presented its newest line – Blue Marine Toys, a unique solution in which toys are made from recycled maritime materials.

“Sustainability is not just a trend – it’s our DNA. By being open and welcoming the use of new materials, we can crack the need for new materials. It is a long and hard battle but here at dantoy it is a natural part of how we work and think” – Marck Matthiasen, CEO dantoy.

Blue Marine toys is the new and fascinating line produced from waste maritime materials, including fishing nets, ropes and trawls. At their factory in Hobro, Denmark, it then turned into sand and water play toys, all in bright and appealing shades. The colours and the surface of the products will be different from what we are used to, but this is international, to symbolize to retailers, parents, and children that the toys are 100% unique and fully sustainable.

“It is exciting and challenging to make colour mixes from fishing nets that have a dark green color as their base material. You have to think differently to achieve the different shades” – Inge S. Knakkergaard Quality and Environmental Coordinator, dantoy.
