Sustainability Leadership Award 2006


Finalist Sustainability Leadership Award 2006

Marrickville Council was so impressed with Flat Friends' vision and business philosophy concerning environmental sustainability, that council asked Flat Friends to submit an entry for an award even though Flat Friends operated its business outside of Marrickville's Council area.

Flat Friends refused to use plastic bags, designing, developing and manufacturing unbleached cotton bags that could be reused as library or book bags.

Council also supported our company goals to teach children about wildlife, multiculturalism and the environment through our puppets, stories, characters and educational toys.
