 Global Affairs uses natural resources wherever possible and has committed itself to a plastic reducing world. Natural fibres and materials, such as (organic) cotton, wool, wool felt, wood, metals and bamboo and also recycled materials are used where possible in all its kids accessories. And on top of that they mostly use materials that come from certified sources. The packaging uses minimal plastics and recycled plastics where suitable.
