Here at mijamo, we strive to fight climate change and make it easier for others to do the same. We have many tips on how adults and children alike can work together to make the world a better place and while we can never reach the amount of damage and emissions that companies and corporations make, we can at least take action in our daily lives to lower our impact, and demand that governments, corporations and companies do the same.

Most of these tips are centered around European, Australian and North American experiences, though many tips can be used in every part of the world. If you have ideas for responsible living in South America, Africa or Asia, please let us know!

These products are durable and long lasting when cared for properly. When you feel that you are finished with one of mijamo’s toys, please re-gift or donate the toys, or reuse the materials and give any leftover material to a textile recycling plant near you. If you do not have access to a company that recycles textiles, then you can cut up the leftover materials into small pieces and bury them in your yard. All of the materials will fully decompose within a year and return to the earth leaving nothing behind.
