"Even if it was super eco-friendly when it was made in China, by the time it gets here it's not really eco any more"

Did you know that 90% of toys worldwide are made out of plastic? It's a startling fact.

In a bid to help the nation reduce their carbon footprint this Christmas, Dermot and Dave chat to Sharon Keilthy, co-founder of eco-toys company Jiminy.ie, who guides us through these three simple questions we need to ask ourselves when buying toys:

  • How it was made?
  • How it is when using it?
  • Where it goes when you're finished?

Sharon explains why harmful virgin plastics need to be replaced by bioplastics to help the future of our planet.
