Greenplay_environment matters

Greenplay is a creative, adaptable children’s furniture component system crafted from environmentally sustainable materials. Our commitment to constructing durable yet attractive furnishings is deeply rooted in our approach to both their design and the manufacturing process behind them.
We carefully examine the materials available to us, selecting only recycled, renewable and low- impact resources and applying finishes with low- or no-VOC emission. This discriminating philosophy is time-tested with extensive research and prototypical fabrication in order to deliver the safest healthiest environment for our youngest generation—and for generations to come.
Because even the smallest environmental impact has a rebound effect on the future life of this planet, the environmentally friendly children’s furniture is engineered so that they can be easily disassembled and recycled for reuse. Additionally, Greenplay offers a take-back program that allows all Greenplay’s sustainable kid’s furniture components to be repurposed and donated. This promise demonstrates our daily commitment to preserving our environment and protecting our children as they grow.
