The Environment and Social Compliance

All Discoveroo products are made from sustainable Plantation Woods including Beech, (retired) Rubber, Bass, Birch, Pine and Tea wood. Our manufacturing partners are BSCI certified (Business Social Compliance Initiative). This means they abide by international standards for fair remuneration, working conditions and also care for the environment.

One of the reasons we specialised in wooden toys was that they are more in tune with the environment than plastic alternatives. Plastic is made from chemicals while wood is a natural. Plastic toys contain PVC (poly vinyl chloride) or BPA (Bisphenol A) both of which are potentially harmful during the production process and in the final product. 

Plastic toys don't biodegrade. If a wooden toy eventually becomes unusable, it quickly biodegrades while a plastic toy will sit in landfill for over 1000 years.

Wooden toys don't go out of style and they are generally robust enough to be passed on to future generations. Plastic toys become brittle as the plasticiser in the toy gives off gasses and they simply will not last the distance.
