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
- 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.
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.
