Sustainability Is Key
It wouldn’t make much sense for a company that designs and builds unique, creative and natural playspaces for children to not be sustainable, particularly when the livelihood of the next generation is at stake.
Play Workshop is an Australian owned business working with Australian suppliers, local and interstate artists, and contractors. In light of recent global events, it is more important than ever to prioritise local suppliers in the playground market, as this helps ensure better security of product and keeps delivery to a more reasonable timeframe.
Play Workshop is proud to prioritise the materials that we use in our playspaces based on their environmental value. Timber is considered the ultimate renewable. Manufacturing new and compliant playground equipment is part of our industry. One of the most responsible actions we can take is to work with materials that require minimal energy inputs throughout manufacture, have a long-life span and that can be recycled or decompose naturally at the end of their life.
Working with materials that are sustainable and not endangering flora or fauna in national and international environments is very important to us. Play Workshop is proud to work with timber suppliers who operate under the Sustainable Managed Forest Policy (Harvest Timber for the Future) through Forestry NSW. Some of our timber suppliers also engage in other initiatives such as “Future Forests”, an innovative sustainability scheme for the timber industry which is committed to re-planting Australian trees on private land across the country.
