Eco-friendly wood children's tableware, toys and more - We believe children's items should not only be beautiful but built to last.
Plastic ain’t fantastic. . ..Children’ products are the most intensive users of plastics amongst consumer goods, about 15 times higher than the plastic usage in food packaging, with 90% of all toys & tableware for babies and toddlers between the age of 0-3 years being made solely of plastic! Every year 8.5 million children’s products end up being disposed of & accumulate on landfills in just the UK alone! 😔
Plastic Pollutions Stats & Facts
- Plastic pollution can now be found on every beach in the world, from busy tourist beaches to uninhabited, tropical islands nowhere is safe.
- Approx 5,000 items of marine plastic pollution have been found per mile of beach in the UK.
- Every day approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans.
- There may now be around 5.25 trillion macro and microplastic pieces floating in the open ocean.
As babies grow, what once was the most essential item, can end up being just another plastic “thing” taking up space that ends up being disposed of with more new “stuff” taking its place – the reality is that 40% of babies products have a lifespan no longer than 4 months. Blue Brontide was born with a desire to shift the concept of children’s products with an “expiry date”, to become the eco-friendly baby and kids collection that’s designed to keep & be passed on to new members as the family grows.
By purchasing more thoughtfully fewer children’s items will make their way to landfills, and that’s why Blue Brontide don’t do ‘disposable’, we do ‘made for keeps’.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, In fact, it's the only thing that ever has." ~ Margaret Mead ~
