Environment is very important to us!
At Honest Quarks Games we're very environmentally aware. We see with a sadness in our eyes how many areas around the world are affected by climate change, and here, in Switzerland, it is well visible by the unbelievably fast glacier melt. We try our best to make our games as ecological-friendly as possible. Here are some of the factors that we consider, and why board games in general stand better compared to other everyday entertainments.
Encourages Social Interaction: Board games promote face-to-face social interaction, reducing the need for energy-consuming electronic devices and encouraging social bonding without the need for screens.
Minimal Energy Consumption: Unlike electronic or digital games, board games don't require electricity to operate. They rely on manual interaction, which is a more energy-efficient form of entertainment.
Minimal Electronic Waste: Electronic and digital games often become obsolete quickly as technology advances. Board games, on the other hand, do not contribute to the growing problem of electronic waste, making them a more sustainable choice.
Minimal Packaging: Our board games have minimal packaging. This reduces the amount of packaging waste generated when purchasing and disposing of products.
Durability: Our board games are made from high-quality materials that are designed to last for a long time. This durability reduces the overall demand for new games and helps to conserve resources.
Reuse and Recyclability: Our games are made from materials like cardboard, paper, wood, and plastic, which are recyclable or biodegradable. Additionally, many people donate or resell their used board games, promoting reuse and reducing waste.
As we want to do even more...
We will be offsetting our footprint by donating to nature conservation and climate change programs, as well as supporting Swiss-based Climeworks AG to capture CO2 from the air.
