The idea behind Makedo is to inspire change through play and altering the perceived value of materials. Designed for disassembly then reuse, this allows parts to eventually be recycled.
Makedo products have won several toy and design awards, including the 2011 Creative Toy Awards product of the year; 2010 Dr Toy Award for best green product, and the Good Design award.

Makedo parts are made of nylon 6,6 which has been selected for its flexibility & strength, thus allowing for extended reuse of the product. Makedo provide a take-back service (they feed back into the production cycle) as this plastic is not yet recycled in most council facilities.

In the factory where Makedo is made, they use energy saving globes, source recycled paper for all office uses, recycles its rubbish and sets its air conditioner to 25.5 degrees in summer!
