Dear Susan and Mary, 
 
thanks for your inquiry, sorry it's taken a while to get back to you but I have a two month old baby, and a toddler, and my emails have been banking up.
 
I would love to say that Feral Cheryl is made from recycled plastics...but that's not the case. I deal with a small Australian manufacturer who makes the doll bodies, and they don't have the technology at this stage to use recycled plastics in the process.    She is made of pvc plastic.  However, unlike Barbie, there is only one model so the idea is that no one should have more than one Feral Cheryl, and you don't throw her away.  Her packaging is made of recycled cardboard, and doubles as a postage pack for sending. The rest of the doll is made from new materials...thread, beads, fabric.  As it says on the poster that comes with the doll..if you need more clothes for her, make them out of scrap material.
When I first started out on this project, I had a lot of plans for how she could be made of recycled and reused materials...and your inquiry has prompted me to look into that again. 
regards,
 
Lee Duncan
