We have twelve themes that cover all important aspects of environmental sustainability.
And our list keeps growing! We've created a guide to what the eco themes contain in terms of content and applicability to different audiences. So read on for a tour:
home eco actions
This theme covers a range of environmentally friendly actions suitable for home life. In the home (previously known as ‘everyday’) theme we cover: insulation, heating, renewable techs, transport, behavioural actions, purchasing high efficiency appliances, waste & recycling and water saving actions. This theme is most suitable for adults who own their own homes and hence have the possibility to change and upgrade.

free & easy (behavioural) actions
This theme was put together to satisfy the our growing audience of children and university & college students who wanted a theme that catered more for people who did not own their own homes and did not have the ability to do some of the more ‘heavy duty’ actions that the home theme suggests. free & easy covers simple, typically free, eco actions that most people can do regardless or age, ability or tenure. Covering energy efficiency, water saving, waste & recycling, active travel and more.

Created for our commercial & corporate audiences. This theme is devoted to how office workers can make a positive difference to the workplace. Generally, these consist of behavioural actions such as turning of equipment and lights, not printing unnecessarily, making sure water using appliances are working efficiently, reducing carbon intensive travel where possible and using the stairs rather than lift and other simple daily habits that can make a difference. Suitable for any office based organisation or company big or small.

Does exactly what it says on the tin! Devoted to all things water. A popular product for our water company clients! We explore both water efficiency – that’s saving it and not wasting any, as well as water quality issues – not using your toilet as a bin, not tipping fats, oils and grease down the drain. Suitable for anyone who consumes water!

energy saving actions
Again, does what it says on the tin. This time we have energy efficiency in our sights. Mostly things you can do at home to save energy and hence money on fuel bills. From small things like switching off standby and ensuring lights are off when you leave home, to the more impactful actions that take a little more time, investment and effort, such as upgrading your heating systems or installing insulation. Suitable for anyone who uses energy, and very suitable for anyone who pays an energy bill!

energy saving in school actions
We run energy saving educational programmes in schools and have come up with a number of our games in a specialised schools' theme. This theme is aimed at educating both pupils and teachers about what they can all do to reduce their energy use in the classroom and other school buildings and save money on their bills.
Please note: if you order the energy in schools giant compendium set you will receive the general energy saving themed toppers and eco action higher lower card games.
Available in: giant snakes+ladders; twist and bingo
waste & recycling actions
Our waste reduction environmental themes tackles the issue of waste from all angles of the waste hierarchy. We explore the best option for waste – the elimination of its creation in the first place, through waste reduction options, upcycling, open & closed loop recycling all the way through to where, in limited instances, it is better to bin than dispose in other ways. Suitable for anyone who creates waste.

Created in response to the demand for more help and information to help people reduce their food waste, and to understand the carbon and water footprints of their food, we have created a set of games dedicated to food. Suitable for anyone who eats food!
Available in: toppers; bingo; snakes+ladders; eco action higher lower; twist and the higher lower online tournament game (carbon footprint and water footprint versions)
eco family actions
Its an inconvenient truth that having a western child is one of the most carbon intensive activities you can indulge in. So we thought it might be useful to create our topper game in a eco parenting theme, to help parents-to-be and growing families to reduce their carbon footprint. Suitable for parents.
Available in: toppers
cleaner air actions
Air quality and local pollution hot spots are a hot topic at the moment, so we have risen to the challenge and produced an air quality eco action snakes & ladders game to help get the messages across that there is lots that can be done by each and every one of us that can help to be part of the solution, not the problem.
Available in: snakes+ladders; eco action twist
Plastic pollution is another hot topic in environmental concerns. we have produced a snakes + ladders game to teach people how they can all use less plastic and hence be part of the solution, not the problem.
Available in: snakes + ladders
global goals (Sustainable Development Goals- SDGs)
We have produced a suite of Global Goal games that help the the player to understand what the sustainable Development Goals are, how they interact with one another, and how they can be used in the workplace as a framework to help guide a business's ESG initiatives..
Available in: Global Goal 2in1 card game; Global Goal bingo; Giant Global Goal Snakes + Ladders
