Muddy Faces

Reducing environmental impact

We aim to embody our values throughout all our business practices, from reducing packaging through to the information we share on the Outdoor Hub.

Packaging

We are looking at various aspects throughout our business, identifying where we can reduce our environmental impact

Our own products are packaged in non-bleached calico bags or paper bags. We have also created a card to explain that any plastic in parcels is being reused from our suppliers.

Packaging

Muddy Faces Ltd has a policy to reduce packing materials, without compromising the protection of your goods. We try to recycle packaging where we can.

If you know of any materials or methods of delivery that have less of an environmental impact, then please tell us about them by emailing info@muddyfaces.co.uk

Wood Treatment

It is extremely important for us at Muddy Faces to use a treatment that is safe for children and the environment. All our treated wood is TANALITH. Many wood treatments raise concerns around environment and child safety. It is really important to check what wood treatment your supplier uses when choosing educational resources.

TANALITH wood preservative is registered and approved under the Biocidal Product Regulation EU 528/2012 (BPR), with UK approval number UK-0007721-0000.

  • Child safe - will not cause harm to a child in the quantities that they are able to 'eat' or 'chew'
  • Acceptable for human, animal, and environmental health

TANALITH treated timber was risk assessed and found to be acceptable for human, animal, and environmental health. The European Union has one of the most stringent risk assessment procedures in the world, and TANALITH was successfully risk assessed against all these criteria and found to have met the high standards required for use in the industrial preservative treatment of timber.

The Future

Over the next year we plan to explore more ways in which we can reduce our environmental impact, through packaging, product presentation and sourcing of products. We will be opening dialogues with our suppliers, encouraging them to reduce their use of plastic packaging and to find out more details about the environmental impact of their products.
