FREE to BTHA Members

Zoom (all registered participants will be sent a join link)

Last year the BTHA commissioned environmental design consultancy Beyondly to produce new guides exclusively for BTHA members to support members trying to reduce any negative environmental impacts of their business. These practical guides outline best practice and design considerations for both sustainable toy packaging, and toy product design and reuse.

This webinar series will go into these considerations in greater detail and provide an opportunity for members to discuss and ask questions.

The guidance can be found here.

  • What does circular design mean for your business and what are the key drivers for circular product design?
  • Circular design opportunities for a toy’s life cycle from market and product design approaches, elongating product use, designing for end of life and reuse.
  • Real life examples of circular design in products.
