Embracing Sustainability: A Commitment to a Greener Tomorrow

At The Best Backyard, we believe that sustainability is not just a choice but a responsibility. Our customers are parents, grandparents, educators or family friends, and we know that sustainability and reducing environmental impacts is a key issue for them, as it is for us. We believe it is our responsibility to hand-over a healthy planet that our children, and many future generations, are able to enjoy.

Here's why sustainability matters to us and the factors we consider in every step of our journey.

Why Sustainability Matters:

Safeguarding the Future: Our planet's resources are finite, and as stewards of the environment, we recognise the need to protect and preserve these resources for the well-being of future generations.

Promoting Biodiversity: By adopting sustainable practices, we contribute to the preservation of biodiversity

Addressing Climate Change: Sustainability is our way of addressing climate change, reducing our carbon footprint, and mitigating the impact of human activities on the environment.

Factors We Consider:

Select Products Designed for Longevity and Durability:
We prioritise products that are built to last, promoting a culture of longevity over disposability. By investing in durable ourdoor play equipment, we reduce the need for frequent replacements, minimising waste and environmental impact.

Sustainable Materials:
Our commitment to sustainability is evident in the materials we choose. From FSC-approved wood used in wooden swing sets and cubby houses, to eco-friendly finishes, we ensure that each element is carefully selected to align with responsible environmental practices.

Designed and Built for Australian Conditions:
Understanding the unique challenges of the Australian climate, we look to work with brands who design and build their products to withstand harsh Australian conditions, ensuring both durability and sustainability.

Reduce Environmental Impacts of Delivery:
We take a comprehensive approach to minimise the environmental impact of product delivery. This includes reusing packaging whenever possible, dispatching directly from suppliers' warehouses to reduce delivery distances, and offsetting delivery impacts through the purchase of carbon credits

Carbon Neutral Office:
Our commitment to sustainability extends to our office operations. With solar panels producing enough energy to power our office, we aim to operate in a carbon-neutral manner. Additionally, we've embraced a paperless office, eliminating unnecessary documents and reducing our overall environmental footprint.

Looking Forward: Transforming into a Carbon-Negative Business:

Our dedication to sustainability doesn't stop here. We aspire to go beyond carbon neutrality and work towards becoming a carbon-negative business. This ambitious goal involves not only reducing our emissions but actively removing carbon from the atmosphere, further contributing to the fight against climate change.

At The Best Backyard, sustainability isn't just a practice; it's a continuous journey of improvement and responsibility. Join us as we strive to create a greener, more vibrant tomorrow through sustainable play and a commitment to a healthier planet.
