Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Green Toys Tea Set

Green Toys, Inc., has a mission to make safe, nontoxic toys. But it also works hard to make the planet a better place to live, work, and manufacture things like toys. The California-based company makes its line of environmentally friendly toys from recycled milk containers. All of its toys are made from recycled materials. The toys also are packaged in boxes and containers made from recycled materials. And because it manufactures its toys in California--not in China as many manufacturers do to save labor costs--it contributes less to greenhouse gases emissions caused by shipping products from far off countries. The toys offered by this eco-friendly, crusading company are sure-to-please classics like dump trucks, recycling trucks (natch), tea sets, tool kits, cooking and dining dishes, and gardening kits.
