What is
My Precious Planet
all about?

We wanted to produce a line of books that would educate young children on the issues we face in the world today. From animal conservation to climate change, the future we build is for our children and their children. We all have a role to play in making a difference now.

Are the My Precious Planet books environmentally friendly?

We have worked hard to make these books more sustainable:

Lion
Icon - Recycled Material

Recycled, FSC-approved paper stock

Icon - Non-bleached Stock and Vegetable Inks

Non-bleached card stock and vegetable inks

Icon - Accredited Factories

Suppliers that are highly accredited, with audited factories that we visit yearly

Icon - No Animals Harmed

No animals or people are ever endangered or mistreated in the production of our titles

Sustainability is about people, too.

We always strive to make our products affordable for all. We want EVERYONE to have the opportunity to read, enjoy and learn from books – at every age!

Yes, we are making progress, but we also recognise that My Precious Planet is not enough and we still have steps to take. We must keep improving the impact that all our books have on our planet for the years to come.

Who has helped to produce the My Precious Planet range?

We have a dedicated in-house team who have brought passion and creativity to the process of researching, writing, designing, producing and selling these special products. We also worked with Scott Barker, a fantastic illustrator, who helped us bring our vision to life. Outside of the creative team, we consulted a range of experts, who shared their insight and wealth of experience from Environmental Education and Sustainability.
