It is important that everything around the Phing-Things is done in a fair and honest way. Spreading happiness starts by the way we make them. For the white plaster based Phing-Things, we work with a variety of community based organisations in Holland who create paid work for disabled people for who it is difficult to find a regular job. Wooden Phing-Things are made on a fair trade basis by Indonesian woodcutter. They are using wood from pinas trees.We are also working towards having Phing-things made from recycled plastic to getting rid of the plastic soup and clean up the oceans.
