Hello from Once Kids.
Hi there! At Once Kids, we're passionate about creating sustainable and eco-friendly toys that are just as fun and engaging as plastic toys, but with a much smaller environmental impact. We started in 2014 because we saw a gap in the market for toys that were both cool and environmentally responsible. We believe that toys should inspire creativity and imagination, while also promoting awareness for the environment we live in.
Our core values, represented by the acronym ONCE, guide everything we do. We use only Organic and Natural resources in the creation of our toys, such as FSC certified solid wood and bamboo, and natural non-toxic water-based paints. We also partner with Charitable organizations to make a positive impact on the Environment and educate our customers about the importance of sustainability. We even incorporate recycled materials, such as felt made from plastic bottles, to aid in environmental cleanup. Our toys are designed to be both functional and beautiful, with modern designs and advanced functionality that appeal to kids and adults alike.
At Once Kids, we believe in building a brand that everyone can believe in, and we're proud to offer toys that are not only fun and engaging, but also environmentally responsible.
As a sustainable toy brand, Once Kids believes in taking responsibility for the impact we have on our planet. We understand that every action we take has consequences, so we focus on making those consequences positive. We have carefully chosen impactful partnerships to help us protect our forests and oceans, and we plant one tree for every product sold through our partnership with One Tree Planted®. Our mission extends beyond just planting trees, as we aim to restore our forests, create habitats for biodiversity, and make a positive social impact around the world. We also recognize the devastating impact of plastic pollution on our oceans. Plastic is a major issue, and Once Kids is committed to limiting its production and stopping the flow of plastics into the ocean. Our focus on real-world collaboration allows us to play a part in the solution to marine debris, one of the greatest threats our oceans face. We have been at the forefront of protecting our oceans for over 8 years and have seen firsthand the impact of trash on the environment. But there is hope, and with your help, we can solve the ocean plastic crisis together. Let's take action and create a positive impact on our planet.
IMPORTANCE OF BIODEGRADABLE BLOCKS
Biodegradable blocks are a crucial component of Once Kids' mission to protect our planet and the habitat we live in. As a sustainable toy brand, we recognize the impact that non-biodegradable plastics have on our environment and wildlife. That's why we've made a conscious effort to use biodegradable materials like FSC-certified solid wood and bamboo to create our blocks. Did you know that every year, over 150 billion plastic blocks are produced, and most of them will never biodegrade? When they end up in landfills or our oceans, they break down into microplastics, which can harm marine life and pollute our environment. We can't just stand by and watch as the production of non-biodegradable plastics continues to consume our planet. Our goal is to provide a solution by offering biodegradable toys that not only protect the environment but also inspire creativity and play. With our biodegradable blocks, kids can learn about the importance of sustainability and become stewards of the planet. We believe that by educating consumers and offering sustainable alternatives, we can make a positive impact on our planet and its future.
