List of products by manufacturer Barefoot Books

Their commitment to green business practices grows from the Barefoot team and Ambassador community’s deep-rooted desire to lessen the impact on the planet. From sustainably sourced paper to vegetable-based ink, the materials that make up the books are ones that you can feel good about having in your classroom or home. Want to learn more? 


Paper is core to a publisher’s business. We want to protect the world’s remaining ancient forests and ensure that the forestry and paper manufacture undertaken on behalf of Barefoot Books is ethical and legal. The welfare of the people involved in and affected by the supply of paper to Barefoot Books is also of paramount importance to us.


Our printers do not use paper that contains pulp from illegal or unsustainable sources in the manufacture of our books. We use paper that has been graded 3* by the PREPS Grading System or certified by the FSC, the gold standard in forest management and responsibly sourced paper. We continue to work with our suppliers to improve the environmental credentials of our products. Our board books and activity books are made using recycled paper. 


All of the ink used by the printers is vegetable based.


Barefoot Books supports a common, internationally recognised social accountability standard to cover working conditions, health and safety issues, remuneration, working hours and the prohibition of the use of child and forced labour . It’s called the CARE Process. It is the standard used by the global toy industry and is managed by their industry body, the International Council of Toy Industries (ICTI). All of our printing partners carry ICTI CARE certification. 


The print suppliers have systems in place to feed paper offcuts and wastage back into their supply chain. Packaging is made from recycled material again after use. They recycle as much as possible.


They tailor print runs to fill shipping containers. This reduces the number of sea and land journeys made on Barefoot Books’ behalf, allowing them control and reduce our carbon footprint.
