Sustainability

We all share one earth, and at Burke we want to preserve our planet for future generations of children. We’ve implemented a variety of practices to help us help keep our shared world a better, greener place.

Manufacturing

Being ISO 14001:2004 certified means we have strict environmental controls built into our manufacturing process. We get 100% of our energy from wind and other renewable resources. This helped us earn the Green Power Partner designation from the US Environmental Protection Agency – the only playground manufacturer to achieve this!

Design

We design high-quality products with long life expectancies and quality components to extend the useable life of the playspace. Many of our raw materials have recycled content, including our steel tubes and castings. In addition, many other Burke products are made from recycled material. For example, the NaturePlay® ClubHouse™ Board Panels and Roofs are made from 75% post-consumer material and are 100% recyclable after use

Offices

Our corporate office uses energy efficient lighting to help reduce energy use on a daily basis. We also use recycled paper to print our catalogs and created a digital catalog to decrease the amount of paper being used. We abide by the six R's: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair, Recover and Respect.

To minimize transportation costs, we prefer to work with suppliers located near our manufacturing facility.
