Building a better future, block by block with Magicube
The importance of sustainability is something that we are seeing more frequently becoming part of our everyday lives. But what exactly is sustainability?
Putting it simply, it is providing for the needs of our current generation without having a detrimental impact on future generations. It acknowledges the importance of economic growth but doing so in an environmentally friendly and resourceful way. We are seeing increasing numbers of companies who are moving their businesses in a direction that recognises the importance of sustainability and being environmentally friendly.
For example, companies that require the use of trees are part of their products are planting more trees for each tree that they cut down, as well as a shift to recyclable and biodegradable packaging. Essentially, they are providing for us now, but in a way that does not negatively impact the future of our planet and ongoing generations which is what sustainability is all about.
Becoming more sustainable can arguably be viewed as a mindset. It’s being more aware of our actions and sowing the seeds of the importance of sustainability into our children from an early age. There is no better place to start this process than in the home. Teaching your children about recycling, planting and growing your own vegetables and upcycling is a great place to start. In doing this, things such as recycling and not being wasteful becomes a habit as opposed to a conscious action.
Thinking sustainably is also important when it comes to our children’s toys. Companies such as Geomag are leading the way in producing high-quality, sustainable products that are both fun and educational and that will stand the test of time. Founded in 1998, Geomag keeps sustainability at the heart of its products, focusing on magnetic construction toys that enhance learning and play without jeopardising the health of our planet.
