Why Are Sustainable Toys Important?

Robyn Marks 23 days ago

With Earth Day on the way, we want to share with you our amazing range of FSC® Certified eco-friendly toys. When it comes to toys, sustainability and durability are at the top of our list. Find out what FSC® is and why it deserves a place in your youngsters’ toy boxes!

What Does FSC Stand For?

FSC® stands for the Forest Stewardship Council®, a worldwide non-profit organisation dedicated to championing responsible, ethical forestry. 

What Is The FSC?

The FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) is a global non-profit organisation that promotes responsible forestry. The FSC® has an international forest certification system that’s made up of Forest Management and Chain of Custody

The FSC® system allows both businesses and consumers to identify, buy, and use wood from well-managed forests and/or recycled sources and other controlled sources. 

The FSC Logo

Wherever you see the FSC® logo, you know that those products are FSC® certified. This ensures that the highest level of protection for endangered species and natural forests has been achieved. All wood marked with the iconic FSC® “tree tick” logo has come from responsibly managed sites.

What Does It Mean To Be FSC® Certified?

If a product is labelled as FSC® Certified, it means that the wood material used has fulfilled the requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council. Being FSC® Certified means that a business has hit the “gold standard” of obtaining wood from forests that are responsibly managed. Bigjigs Toys are proud to be FSC® Certified with FSC® C147826.

Why are Bigjigs Toys using FSC®?

We want our toys to last for years to come and to be passed down through families and friends. To ensure that future generations can enjoy the benefits of beautiful forests, we make sure that our wood is sustainably sourced. 

It’s super important for us to have sustainable toy options widely available to our customers. Together, we can secure a future with forests.
