It’s no question that plastic management will play a huge role on the world stage in the decades to come. In the Issue Debrief by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, it’s reported that “At least 14 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year, and plastic makes up 80% of all marine debris found from surface waters to deep-sea sediments.” Moreover, the issue is fueled by a lot of our habits of online shopping. In a statistical report published by Statista, “The global e-commerce industry used approximately 2.1 billion pounds of plastic packaging in 2019. It is projected that e-commerce plastic packaging use will continue to grow in the coming years, reaching an estimated 4.5 billion pounds by 2025.” In short, we all love our plastics, but the convenience of online shopping is creating more and more of it over the years. The question is though, what exactly can we do about this?
The simple answer is to use less of it! The Queen’s Treasures not only takes special care in assuring traditional quality in our stock of heritage-grade toys, but there’s also an eco-friendly benefit to our approach to playtime! All of our 18” dolls, doll accessories, and furniture pieces contain no plastic and our packaging uses minimal plastic components for safe-shipping purposes. Although celebrating our traditional heritage of our classically styled 18” doll collection was not inherently a choice fueled by green initiatives, it’s an amazing benefit to consider! Our pioneer ancestors were definitely not crippled by a fear of filling the ocean with plastic to say the least.
In addition to using as little plastic as possible, our product line is ardently safety-tested. From the moment your favorite child enjoys opening up and hugging their newest and favorite doll, we’ve put all the love and hard work into making sure the product is just as safe as it is lovable and that the choices we make are working hard to make sure every one of our kids grow up to see bright blue skies, clean oceans, and fresh air to breath.
