It has never been so popular to think green. We know this because the demand for sustainable materials is increasing. More and more people want to take better care of our planet, so that we can have greener nature, cleaner air and a plastic-free ocean around the world. Creativ Company wants to be part of sustainable development – which is why we offer a lot of sustainable materials in the area we know best– namely hobbies. But we don't just have sustainable materials; much of our packaging and many of our creative ideas are also sustainable. You can already explore our sustainable products. You will find them on this page, which includes everything from biodegradable glitter and beads to sustainable tote bags and FSC-certified wood products. Further down the page, you can read much more about our sustainable materials within hobbies and how the packaging on several of our DIY Kits is recycled. You will also get an insight into our creative ideas based on the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals
The UN has drawn up 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which focus on sustainable development for both people and the planet. All UN Member States must work together to solve social, economic and environmental problems. This means we are committed to ending poverty and hunger worldwide, reducing inequalities, ensuring good education and better health for all, decent jobs and more sustainable economic growth. In connection with this, Creativ Company has created a learning and inspiration universe, so that you and your children can be creative with the Sustainable Development Goals. Here you will find products, projects and ideas that combine creativity with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Creative ideas with world goals knowledge: Each idea you find here is based on one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals. For example, you can decorate an insect hotel and hang it up in the garden or on the terrace, so that you fulfil goal 15, which is about stopping the loss of biodiversity. You can also make dressing dolls that show the world’s diversity. This idea is based on Goal 16, which is about creating peaceful, inclusive societies. Thus, all children and adults are invited to explore the Sustainable Development Goals together through our creative ideas.
Products for World Goals knowledge: This page is filled with products that you can use for creative activities that strengthen children’s knowledge of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. You will find flowerpot covers, flower presses and DIY kits that encourage children to explore nature.
We love when you use our products for your creative projects, and we love even more when we can offer you an eco-friendly alternative. Instead of ordinary glitter, which pollutes and is difficult to decompose in nature, you can use our bio glitter, which has just as much glitter effect, but is biodegradable and decomposes in nature without polluting. It allows you to shine brightly on your creative projects without harming nature.
The same is true of our BioBeads from NABBI. They also decompose in nature, but offer just the same amount of play and learning as ordinary beads. BioBeads beads do not pollute water or soil because they are made from biodegradable materials such as rapeseed oil and lime.
In addition to eco-friendly glitter and eco-friendly beads, you should also take an extra look at our wood products. Many of them are made from FSC-certified wood, which is a sensible choice when it comes to sustainability. When wood is FSC-certified, it has been taken from a forest where the number of trees felled match what the forest can reproduce. You can therefore use a lot of creativity on our lovely wood products.
If, on the other hand, the material is not sustainable in itself, you can always use the material to create a sustainable project. Take crepe paper and make your own everlasting bouquet of crepe flowers – a great and sustainable alternative to fresh flowers, because you don't need to water them or care for them, and they will last forever. See our colourful selection of crepe paper right here and see how many beautiful crepe flowers you can make here.
The packaging is a good place to start if you are trying to minimise your overconsumption and waste. In many of our DIY Kits, you and the children can reuse the packaging in the idea itself. In that way, children can see that by-products can be a resource rather than a waste. If you are looking for more sustainable packaging, you can also try our The coloured pencils’ packaging is made from recycled materials and comes in many different colours, making it easy for you and your children to choose sustainable hobby products.
What is sustainability?
Sustainability is a broad term concerning the environmental, social, and economic aspects of society, and is in that sense a holistic concept. But sustainability is often used in the context of climate and increasing greenhouse gas emissions, as well as our overconsumption and plastic pollution.
What does sustainability mean?
Sustainability means creating the best possible conditions for people and the environment – not only now, but also in future. In the wider perspective, then, sustainability is about responsibility. Our actions should not only help us, but also help future generations to have a good life.
What are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals?
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals comprise 17 specific targets and 169 subgoals, which all the UN’s 193 Member States are responsible for achieving. They are all committed to ending poverty and hunger worldwide, reducing inequalities, ensuring good education and better health for all, decent jobs and more jobs, and more sustainable economic growth.
When were the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set?
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals were adopted at the UN summit in New York on 25 September 2015, by the world’s heads of state and government.
