Certification story

Smudge & Dribble, providers of early years supplies, wholesale child care supplies and hygiene products for nurseries, preschools, creches and daycare centres, have achieved certification to Planet Mark. 

Smudge & Dribble has already made commitments to environmentally friendly products across many of its products. Its eco-friendly range of products includes cleaning products for use in nurseries, pre-schools, offices and other business areas. Many of the products are biodegradable, recyclable or made with materials that reduce their impact on the environment.

Over the next year, it will be working towards reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the company will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Through Planet Mark, Smudge & Dribble has protected endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth directly supports the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

It has also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.

“Smudge & Dribble has shown clear ambition to commit to positive, sustainable change and this must be applauded. The company is setting the right example for others in the industry to follow and the drive and dedication from the team to reduce its environmental impact is a pleasure to witness.”

The hygiene and cleaning industry must seize upon the tremendous opportunity that sustainability presents. As the world embarks on a decade of climate action, companies in the hygiene and cleaning industry can work to both attract and retain clients and reduce their carbon emissions. From reducing the impact of a company’s own processes to engaging its supply chain to secure environmentally friendly products, a robust and wide reaching concern for sustainability allows a company to thrive in the modern day.
