Do you know how Tidy Books is eco-friendly?

Did you know all Tidy Books designs are finished in a Water Lacquer that is virtually odour free and eco-friendly

Tidy Books designs are finished in water- based lacquer which is a safe, virtually odour free lacquer that is ideal for children and allergy sufferers.  The finish is natural and very low in VOCs  (Volatile Organic Compounds, which create the odour of paints and varnishes).

The water lacquer creates a beautiful natural finish for the wood of our products, and means that the wood grain is just visible. Each Tidy Books product is unique as no two look precisely the same!

Our Water Lacquer means that Tidy Books products are kind to the environment and kind to the health of the people who make Tidy Books products.  We’re very proud of our water lacquer: We are far ahead of the accepted standards on safe paints and finishes.  Water Lacquer took time to develop, but we think the health and environmental benefits are worth it.

We like to play our part on the planet, and so you can be confident when buying a Tidy Books product, that our designs have been made with respect for the Earth’s natural resources.

  • Our products are built to last and will adapt as your family grows up.  We don’t believe in a throwaway product and Tidy Books designs will last a lifetime.
  • Tidy Books products are made from sustainable, FSC Certified wood to prove their lighter impact on the planet.

We take our ethical responsibilities seriously at Tidy Books.
