University Games takes steps towards a greener future

Published on: 18th March 2021

University Games will reinforce efforts to improve its environmental impact with a newly created Taking Steps to Protect Our Planet logo. 

“We all have our part to play in helping to sustain and protect our planet, it is not just for ourselves but for future generations,” commented Richard Wells, manging director at University Games.

University Games is taking positive strides to improve its environmental impact in 2021, in a quest to be the most environmentally friendly games and puzzles company in the UK. The games, puzzles and gift specialist is taking significant steps towards a greener future and has created a new ‘Taking Steps to Protect Our Planet’ logo that will help enforce their message.

University Games now offers an impressive portfolio of over 700 games, puzzles and gifts, following the acquisition of The Lagoon Group last summer, the majority of which utilise cardboard in either their production or packaging process.

Richard Wells added: “Environmental concerns have always been high on our agenda but now, as individuals and as a business, we all have to do more every day to help protect our planet. Our commitment is to actively move to significantly reduce single use plastic throughout the product and packaging process, removing shrink wrap and all other single use plastic from all our games and puzzles wherever possible. We will also ensure that the outer packaging and product packaging are fully recycled and fully recyclable wherever possible. Retailers should keep a look out for our new ‘Taking Steps to Protect Our Planet’ logo.”
