More toy suppliers than ever are making sure they do more than just comply with environmental standards, but greatly exceed them. Not only that, there are more toys than ever that have ecological themes, such as the Penguin Rescuer Game from Wonderworld, in which players help penguins navigate around the melting polar ice caps.
One of many firms taking a greener approach is Thailand-based wooden toy manufacturer, Wonderworld, by participating in a localised tree re-planting scheme and manufacturing a range of educational games and toys to raise awareness of environmental issues. And privately-owned DKL Marketing is showing its support too, by playing an active role in the product development and distribution of its Eco Series range
We expect this trend to continue to grow in the next five years, so be on the look out for great new eco-friendly games, as well as green-washing attempts to sell games that are not really eco-friendly.
