Great Little Trading Company is leading the way when it comes to sustainable wooden toys and wooden alternatives to single-use products for kids. GLTC’s Buy Wood, Buy Once campaign echos the sentiments of their entire product range, of not only toys but fantastic nursery furniture and storage solutions for kids.
GLTC’s pledge to the planet
Great Little Trading Company is passionate about doing its bit to minimise the environmental impact of its business. Their mission is to continually strive to make improvements to their current ways of working.
Sustainable sources of wood and high-quality, long-lasting materials are key to their evolving sustainable initiatives. GLTC follows EU timber regulations, repurposing wood that would otherwise have been wasted in the manufacturing process, as well as eliminating all plastic packaging from their toy range and hardware packs.
Their promise is to help preserve the planet while encouraging the next generation to do the same. Right at the core of their business is the message to buy responsibly.
Great Little Trading Company’s Around the World collection
GLTC is set to launch a new Around the World collection, and to celebrate the launch combined with World Earth Day on 22nd April, they’ve shared these free and fab printable templates so kids can get crafty, making animals from cardboard.
Sustainability and toys
It’s easy to see that Great Little Trading Company is passionate about wooden toys. Their selection of quality toys is designed to last, so they can be passed down through generations. What we love about GLTC’s toy offering is that they’re powered by nothing other than creativity and make-believe. In these eco-sensitive days it’s comforting to know that at the end of their play life, wooden toys are biodegradable, unlike their battery-powered, plastic counterparts, which will plague the planet well into the next century.
As their passion to help preserve our planet increases, their product range is evolving too. From sustainable wooden alternatives to single-use advent calendars to products designed to nurture a child’s interest in the environment around them – they are continually thinking of ways to encourage the next generation to care for our wonderful planet.
