90% of toys are made from petroleum-based plastic. Making that plastic generates huge amounts of greenhouse gases and waste. Every year, millions of tons of plastic land in the oceans, where marine animals eat the plastic bits. Studies show that by 2050, the oceans could hold more plastic than fish.
Thankfully, there's a better way to make toys.
Unlike most toys, Earthtiles are made with sustainable wood from FSC-certified forests. Responsible management protects these forests for future generations.
Your toy purchase also plants a tree. Environmental degradation, deforestation, and poverty are directly connected. Fewer trees leads to erosion, soil depletion, and reduced crop yield for those dependent on the land. Your purchase helps farmers plant trees, restore their land, and escape the cycle of poverty.
Earthtiles are tools for open-ended play, which encourages cognitive flexibility and creative confidence in young children. With Earthtiles, kids develop spatial thinking skills and even get exposure to the basics of geometry. It's learning in its purest and most effortless form.
Who We Are
We're Steve and Kristin. We're parents and the founders of Big Future Toys.
In 2011, we became parents for the first time. Like you, we wanted to provide the very best for our kids. When we couldn't find truly sustainable, educational toys, we started making them ourselves.
We design all of our toys here in Atlanta, Georgia.
