ToysGotAPlan!

A service tailored to small and medium toy companies
Transition smoothly from

``OMG, We are falling behind. We need to catch up and showcase our commitment to sustainability. Right now. But I don't know where to start, I don't have time to research, and I can't hire specialised staff!``

to

``We are a genuine force for good contributing to a better World and children, parents and distributors LOVE US!``

This service has been specially developed for small and medium toy companies that know that children and families crave brands that share their values and care about People and the Planet but are short of time, hands or knowledge on sustainability.

You bring the thirst to thrive by being a force for good, and I'll provide my knowledge in sustainability in the toy industry, best practices, trends and tools that will fit your budget, strategy, time and staff skills.

I will be there to guide your journey, help you when you get tangled and raise potential opportunities or risks.
