The “Fridays for Future” student demonstrations have managed to do what many politicians and environmental initiatives have been trying to do for years – raise the publics awareness about climate protection on a global level. We only have one Earth and it cannot be replaced. Even younger children are receptive to play involving the topics of environmental awareness, sustainability and renewable sources. Whether through children’s books, science kits or board games, topics like wind power and recycling can be explained easily using toys. Toys with a modern design which are made from ecological materials such as corn starch, sugar cane, old plastic bottles or sawdust ensure an environmentally conscious playtime.
The “Toys for Future” trend brings children closer to the topics of sustainability and environmental awareness in a playful way.

Tikiri supports the organisation “plastic Oceans” who have made it their mission to fight against plastic waste in the sea.
