Environmental & Social
Sustainability and social responsibility are at the heart of our company. To minimise our impact on the environment and to raise awareness of how diverse and multi-cultural society is, we have implemented five main strategies.
The materials used in the manufacture of our books are ethically sourced and approved by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Inks used are vegetable based which is a much greener alternative to oil or petroleum based inks. Our printer has strict policies regarding all their processes and materials being eco-friendly.
To reduce our carbon footprint, we make sure to hand deliver our products when possible and for those items that require posting, we use envelopes made from recycled paper and water based glue.
The company who prints our books, is local to us which means that we can collect the books in person and on foot.
We reduce paper wastage and usage by using digital marketing platforms, such as: our website, Instagram and TikTok pages.
Paper based advertising and ordering, is kept to a minimum; any order forms or posters are printed in house on recycled paper.
We would like to make both, children and adults, more aware of ethical issues. We aim to do this through our book and digital platforms.
The importance of friends from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds, is built in to Pedro's story and is a theme we aim to develop further.
We would encourage children to pass on our book to other children who may not have the means to purchase it themselves. Alternatively, it could be donated to charity, when children have outgrown it. We would love our books to be loved again and again by lots of children!
