World Environment Day: The Case for Robust Kids Products
BuddyPhones are strong, durable and made to last, offering parents a worthwhile investment that's also good for the environment.
What's something we know about young kids? They're great at destroying things! That's why it seems sensible to buy cheaper products since they'll probably be replaced every few months. But this can be a false economy financially, in terms of safety, and for the environment.
"According to the United Nations University, 92 billion pounds of electronics were discarded globally in 2014 alone."
Spending a little more money on something much more durable can take away some of this worry and allow you to give your child more freedom. Buying quality typically means buying once instead of multiple times. This is a great cost benefit to parents as, when it comes down to it, a durable product means less time spent reaching for your wallet to shell out for replacement products. Even if the original purchase is a little more than you’d usually spend, it’s usually an investment, as you’ll earn back this value in extended use.
This brings us to the larger perspective. Well-made products are far more environmentally friendly as their increased duration makes for less waste. According to the United Nations University, 92 billion pounds of electronics were discarded globally in 2014 alone. In a time of deteriorating climate conditions and global warming, innovators are now pooling resources to create the most sustainable products possible. One of the most environmentally beneficial acts that we as consumers can undertake is to prolong each product’s lifespan instead of throwing it away and purchasing a new item every couple of months.
“Well-made products are far more environmentally friendly as their increased duration makes for less waste.”
Small touches such as flexible arms that are less likely to snap when the headphones are sat on or dropped, a cable measured to an appropriate length to prevent tangling and designed to detach so they don’t break apart. And with BuddyPhones being endlessly customisable with the included stickers, your kids won’t tire of their headphones as their might with other gadgets, meaning they’re more likely to see regular usage.
A safe, fun product that saves parents cash and helps to protect the environment? That’s what we call a win-win!
