After a trip to a local toy store to buy a birthday present for a friend, my daughter was frustrated with the fact that I would not buy plastic toys, yet those are the ones she is most drawn too. On the drive home, she composed a letter to Disney, asking them to become more eco-friendly. The letter was entirely her inspiration, and I was quite proud. Here is the letter she wrote when we got home:
Please make your Disney Princess toys without having lead in them, and please don’t make them plastic. If you want to make money, then at least try being eco-friendly. That is how you are going to make more money. The world is getting greener and in the next couple of years, you will not have anyone buying your plastic. Don’t copy what Bratz is doing to their workers. Give them two or three more dollars. The yarn dolls and the wooden jewelry box and the Disney Princess yarn socks and the sleeping bag are pretty much eco-friendly, but you just have to use eco-friendly yarn and paint. All I am asking you is to be eco-friendly. If you don’t listen, I am just going to keep sending you more and more emails.
