Throughout the Year:

Every month from April to November we’ll be publishing blogs on the theme Towards a Carbon Neutral Toy Industry. Each blog covers a topic relating to carbon, climate change and toys. You may or may not agree with some of the suggestions on how we can move towards a carbon neutral toy industry - that's ok! At the end of each blog there are discussion questions.

Get your colleagues together with a cup of tea or a glass of wine, read the blog together and have a discussion! See what you think and which ideas you can implement into your sustainability strategy.

Sign up to the newsletter to receive notification when the blogs are published. Or check the resources for downloadable pdfs.

Monthly topics are:

April - Earth Overshoot Day - What’s the future of the toy industry?
May - The Toy Industry's Impact and Influence
June - Reducing Carbon by Prioritising Quality over Quantity
July - Reducing Carbon at Source
August - How to Measure Carbon
September - Carbon Offsetting - Green Solution or Green Washing?
October - Toys and Climate Anxiety
