Safety comes first at Zimpli Kids and now eco is just as important
– as we are sure it is to you too!
This is why we proudly manufacture over 95% of our products right here in our UK ISO 9001 accredited factory. More recently we have been accredited with ISO 14001; the coveted environmental certification awarded to companies who prove they minimise how their operations negatively affect the environment.
We implement a waste management system to effectively manage and reduce waste in all aspects of our business. Including dedicated recycling and general waste bins and a baling machine in the warehouse to efficiently store, compact and bundle the waste we generate.
Certified Biodegradable Toy
Having the certification that our products are bio-degradable was super important to us! "So it just turns back to water and safely drains away?" Yes, it really is magic!
Gelli Baff and Slime Baff have both passed the Bio-degradation Test OECD 301B as tested by Intertek. Intertek are the largest & most respected tester of consumer goods in the world, and they have a network of more than 1000 locations in over 100 countries.
Quality versus sustainability
We proudly manufacture to both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards but we are aware that by changing our bags from plastic to paper & using recycled board, there is a minimal reduction in quality.
It’s true our paper bags do not seal quite as reliably as plastic bags and our retail packaging may not be quite as shiny in recycled board as it would in new board, but we firmly believe this very nominal reduction in quality is more than justified – We hope you do to.
So, join us on our journey to becoming eco warriors...it’s going to be a fun one!
