Our planet is gasping for breath. So why would we feed into that and make it worse? All of our partners are aligned with our values too.
Classic products made responsibly
All of our partners are aligned with our values of using friendlier materials and producing products that stand out from the crowds and the test of time.
By the end of 2022 all of our wooden toys will be sustainably sourced and FSC certified. FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is dedicated to promoting sustainable forest management and carefully manages forests to make sure they increase in size each year. No tropical rain forests are destroyed and FSC certification brings social benefits to workers and local people, as well as environmental benefits for biodiversity and ecosystems. Products made with wood from FSC forests carry the ‘tick tree’ logo.
Unlike mass-produced plastic toys, all of our toys are design-led classics, that are investment pieces built to be passed down the generations.
Haus doesn’t stop there. We also thoroughly test every product to make sure it passes our safety criteria and British standards, not because it’s a requirement but because it’s the right thing to do.
The right direction
Haus is always looking for ways to become more sustainable in the management of our business. We care about providing efficient and environmentally conscious distribution and aftercare, from making sure we use boxes that are the right size and never using plastic packaging to buying fully loaded containers directly from China which shortens travel time, maximises space, and reduces the number of deliveries. Plus, the brands we work with also share our values for sustainability such as using textiles made from recycled bottles and using FSC wood.
Internally, our team drives hybrid cars and we walk to work when we can. We also recycle all of the cardboard that’s shipped in, as well as personally recycling. Even small changes can make a difference and we all have to start somewhere.
