Yep we're carbon neutral!
Our company activities use energy, every single day. From the electricity to power our computers through to the fuel to transport our packages across Australia, we’re very conscious of our energy use.
As a values-driven business, we are working towards minimising our energy use. We are also offsetting the carbon emissions that we do generate.
We do this at no extra cost to our customers.
Why? Because we strive to benefit our community and world. We help to keep our environment healthy for our kids.
We’re proud that all packages are now sent through a carbon-offset service. This means that carbon produced in delivering orders to your door will be offset through renewable energy generation. This is a significant step towards minimising our carbon footprint, as the planes and vehicles that deliver orders across this great country are our biggest consumer of energy.
Reduce, reuse, recycle
We're minimising the plastic in our packaging, and replacing single-use packaging with reusable items.
The packaging we use for your orders is recyclable and is made from recycled materials where practical.
However … what’s better than recycling materials? Reusing them! “Reduce, reuse, recycle” is an excellent rule of thumb that applies to us too. Most orders are now shipped in reusable, sturdy boxes.
Empty boxes, textured materials, and loose paper are all great for reusing in open-ended play! We print ideas into our packaging to encourage reuse by kids in open-ended play. Imagine ... constructions, sculptures, cardboard machines, dolls beds, miniature theatres, marble runs, games, paper aeroplanes, and that practical reuse which we all need: storage 😊
Everything can have a second life, and the benefit of helping to develop creative skills is an intended bonus!
Thumbs up to the supply chain
Our actions go beyond our direct activities too. When choosing suppliers, we value those that are environmentally conscious, so we maintain our values through the supply chain.
The website you are currently looking at is hosted with an organisation that invests in 'carbon sequestration' which is the capture and storage of carbon from the atmosphere. That's reversing carbon emissions through innovation - how cool is that?!
This is a business that cares about our impact. Consumers are making environmentally conscious choices for their purchases and we’re proud to make that choice a little easier.
