Our eco-friendly publishing catalogue

Thinking Kids

At blOOturtle, we believe the future is in providing two things for our kids, knowledge and a healthy planet. trOOblOO Thinking Kids is our publishing program that ensures all picture books produced and printed by blOOturtle meet globally recognised eco-friendly production standards.

blOOturtle uses a zero-emission-printer in a “Plus” energy production facility ensuring energy efficiency, energy production and energy recycling – in other words, it produces more energy than it uses in heating, ventilation, lighting and cooling.

All blOOturtle picture books labelled with the trOOblOO symbol, have been printed to the standards of the program.

For more information or to answer questions about this program please contact us at: books@blOOturtle.com

The trOOblOO criteria includes:

  • The right paper: not only FSC® or PEFC® paper, but 100% recycled paper, usually labelled with the Blue Angel
  • Ink: based on vegetable oil instead of mineral oil
  • Vegan printing: you wouldn’t believe how many ingredients in the printing industry come from animals!
  • Eco electricity: only power from renewable energy will be used throughout production
  • Eco-friendly recycling management of waste: up to 90% of the waste within the production process will be recycled
  • Carbon neutral production: the use of renewable energy where possible, the unavoidable rest will be compensated in climate protection projects within the official greenhouse gas protocol (ghgprotocol.org)
  • Carbon neutral delivery: books will be delivered via carbon neutral means whenever possible, with packaging labelled “GoGreen” (an initiative of the German Post to compensate for greenhouse gases of delivery
  • Certification: EMAS (European Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) and Blauer Engel
  • ClimatePartner: our suppliers are all registered with ClimatePartner
