Asian American Publisher Duck Duck Books Launches Line of Sustainable Eco-Friendly Products

Duck Duck Eco Goods offers the Duck Duck Gift Swaddlinga multi-purpose, reusable and washable wrapping cloth inspired by traditional Japanese furoshiki, and the Duck Duck Backpack, a reusable and washable toddler backpack-turned-lunch bag that grows with your child. The latest product, the Duck Duck Backpack, is made with SUPERNATURAL PAPER™ from out of the woods, creators of eco-friendly and sustainable vegan bags made from responsibly and ethically sourced materials.

“Sustainability is a big part of who we are and what we do,” said the founder of Duck Duck Books. Serena Y. Li. “Our vision is a world with more families making green decisions and adopting eco-friendly lifestyles.” An Asian American mother of a toddler, Serena Y. Li was baffled by the amount of waste generated by children’s consumerism and wanted to leverage her brand to help reduce waste. She imagined the design of the convertible backpack and initiated an exclusive collaboration with Out of the Woods.

“It was a delightful experience working with Serena Li and Duck Duck Books in developing a backpack that synthesizes the best of functionality, charm and of course durability – for our most valued customer. We share the same philosophy as Duck Duck Books in creating offerings that encourage conscious choices for everyone, ultimately leading to greater collective impact.” said Pierre Barlier, CEO of Out of the Woods.

This isn’t the first time the team at Duck Duck Books has innovated an existing product with quality and durability in mind. Duck Duck Books’ multilingual children’s books for ages 0-5 – which focus on social-emotional themes with multicultural values ​​- are also printed with vegetable-based ink on responsibly sourced paper.

“Change doesn’t have to be drastic. Change isn’t all or nothing. If we all take small, solid steps to contribute to a more sustainable world, we can leave the planet in better shape than we found it for our next generation,” Li said.
