Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plansSustainability plays a very important role in our overall strategic plan and is an area that we look to improve upon each year. With sister company Wilberry Toys we are constantly looking at ways to improve our sustainability and minimise our impact on the environment. We take our commitment to ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) very seriously.Sustainability initiativesFor many of our product ranges the SIL, hangtag, display box and master cartons are made from recycled materials and they are recyclable. Where possible recycled stuffing is used, in many cases from recycled plastic bottles. Poly bags are recyclable, we are looking at having these made from recycled materials and / or biodegradable in the future, and where permissible we have already cut out the use of poly bags and hang tags completely. We combine orders to limit our shipping and take containers by boat as opposed to air freight to limit our carbon footprint. All materials in the warehouse are re-used and recycled, as an example we ship out orders using the boxes the goods arrive in from the manufacturers where possible so these are re-used. We also have recycling procedures and points in place across the warehouse and offices for all employees. As part of our standard working practice we limit our use of printing paper, water and electricity as much as possible and place a big emphasis on being environmentally friendly.Pledges for the yearWe are launching a new range of Eco-puppets made from recycled materials which we are really excited about. We are also continuing working with our manufacturers on making our packing, labelling and shipping as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible. We are looking at implementing changes to our packaging and further improving our recycling levels and reducing packaging across the board.Sustainable ProductsWalking Eco PuppetsAT THE FAIRNEW TO THE FAIRSocial equity at your companyOur workers health and safety is of the utmost importance to us and we take our commitment to our staff very seriously.
