Another FSC® pass for TP Toys

Published on: 15th August 2013

Over recent years, more consumers are demanding natural wood products in their homes and gardens hence the move to timber from metal frames.TP-Toys-FSC-Press-release-2

Consumers are now much more aware of environmental issues and want to be sure they are looking after the planet for their children. Choosing a Forest Stewardship Council® certified product gives them all the reassurance they need because the FSC label guarantees that the trees that are harvested are replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally.

The benefits of FSC® certification for TP are clear. Forests managed according to FSC’s Principles & Criteria mean fair conditions for workers, respect for indigenous communities and local populations, and strict environmental controls. For TP toys, selling FSC certified products & materials’, communicating this message to consumers is crucial. It builds trust and brand loyalty among existing customers, and helps to reach new customers. It is evident that consumers trust the FSC label.

All wooden TP play frames are made from European FSC certified pine or spruce – pressure treated so there is no need to stain the products to keep the warranty intact. All TP wooden play sets are covered by a 5 yr. no quibble guarantee. TP toys have successfully launched several new lines into market in 2013, including the new Kingswood 2 play frame and this commitment to innovation will continue in 2014.

Guy Orr, Director at Mookie says ‘We are proud to be FSC certified. Being FSC certified gives consumers the reassurance that TP toys are not contributing to global deforestation. Using FSC makes TP a greener, more sustainable company. By choosing FSC we are contributing to positive changes in the world’.

Ann Weddle, Manager at NEPCon UK & Ireland goes on to say “We are proud to certify TP Toys whose commitment to FSC has been evident by their expanding certified ranges and their efforts to ensure excellent compliance.”

With over 50 years’ experience, TP toys design and supply a range of products for all families across all budgets. For 2014 TP are introducing a value range of round wood swing frames as well as expanding the top of the range Kingswood 2 collection.
