Paperpod & Kid-Eco Join ForcesPosted March 30 2012
Paperpod products were the brain child of Paul Martin, a well respected and award winning East Sussex product designer with over 25 years experience as a cardboard engineer. Inspiration for Paperpod products first came to Paul from seeing Christmas and birthday presents put to one side whilst his kids had hours of fun playing with the boxes.
Paul went on to design an imaginative range of eco-friendly products for schools and nurseries using recycled cardboard. Intended primarily to promoting creativity and imagination, the Paperpod designs support EYFS and National curriculum recommendations, are sturdy, safe and fun. They can be decorated using paint and collage or left blank to inspire young imaginations. Paperpod products fold flat for storage, are fully recyclable and biodegradable.
In March 2012 The Paperpod brand and all associated designs, were acquired by 3WM Limited, who produce a complimentary range of products under the Kid-Eco brand. This transition was the result of harmonious agreement with Paul who aims not to lose touch with his designs, remaining on hand in a consultative capacity.
Kid-Eco fully intend to keep the Paperpod brand alive alongside their own in recognition of the Paul's initial inspiration. We hope that Paul will continue to produce innovative designs for The Paperpod Collection and that his ideas will reach their true potential through our combined efforts.
