Sustainability with Nexus
Nexus has a wide range of high-quality products designed and developed with both Children and our environment in mind. We introduced Bamboo into our product range in the Summer of 2019 and from then on we have been coming up with a new and sustainable way of producing, designing, and shipping our products.
The P2P Count Up range (Image Above) was released in Summer 2019 and has been popular with teachers, parents, and most importantly pupils. The Numeracy product was designed by Simon (Nexus Managing Director) & Dr Angela Webb (Former chair of the NHA) and joined our famous Pegs to Paper Handwriting Programme. Count Up has been designed to use Bamboo where possible.
The newest edition to the Nexus product range, Block Play (Image Left), has been released this Summer and is entirely made from Bamboo. The range includes two construction sets, bamboo vehicles, and so much more. Perfect for developing construction, vocabulary, and creative imagination skills.
Why bamboo is so amazing and is helping to save the planet.
Nexus is pioneering a new technique called bamboo carbonation. This method includes drying out the Bamboo under intense heat before manufacturing into products. This method gives the bamboo strength, a rich caramelized colour and durability, making it better to cut, drill, sand and provides a clean finish. As a company, we are extremely proud to be apart of this pioneering and life-changing technique. Read below to find out what products we have created using Bamboo.
