Sustainability is not something we take lightly—nor is it a term we like to throw around thoughtlessly, without real evidence to back it up.
At FUNBOY, we’re continuously working towards our ultimate goal of adopting an entirely sustainable business model. We’re not perfect, but we are constantly researching and innovating our materials, production, and quality. Below are just some of the recent measures we’ve taken to help us get ever closer to that goal:
Compared to the average pool float, ours are fashioned from far thicker and more durable materials. Add to that our rapid inflate-deflate valves, and the result is longer-lasting designs that you can easily store during the off-season. Say goodbye to single use, one-summer-and-done pool floats.
We take our responsibility to the environment seriously. All of our materials are free from AZO dyes (synthetic colorants that have been linked to carcinogens), 10 harmful phthalates (which are commonly used as plasticizers in textile printing and have been linked to certain cancers and adult obesity), and lead-tainted pigments.
We’re also working towards a closed-loop manufacturing model. All scraps from production that would otherwise end up in landfills are used to make additional products. In 2019, we introduced recyclable packaging, and plan to make all of our packaging recyclable by 2021.
To reduce our carbon footprint, we operate a paperless business and implement remote work policies whenever possible.
Since our 2015 inception, we’ve worked with charities to provide over 10,000 people with one year’s worth of clean drinking water.
