How Blue Orange Games is a Green Company
Due to its quality, durability, warmth, and appeal, wood has always been the material of choice for Blue Orange Games. The company has committed to plant two trees for every one used in game construction. It replants a variety of trees such as pine, birch and beech to preserve the integrity and biodiversity of the natural environment. This campaign began in the summer of 2006, planting on average 25,000 trees a year since then. Blue Orange is a pioneer in this endeavor and it has set a green example for the Toy Industry. The company also uses green materials in its packaging. While the typical packing product of choice is paper, to minimize the use of plastics, Blue Orange packaging is made from recycled and recyclable cardboard. Blue Orange Games was the first Dr. Toy’s Best Green Toy Company to be recognized in 2007.
