Sustainability Statement

Marbles Kids Museum is committed to practicing environmental sustainability and stewardship.

What We Do

Where We Work 

  • Marbles operates on unceded land that provided life for indigenous people and communities for thousands of years prior to European colonization.  

  • Marbles honors this land and its past and present inhabitants, including descendants of indigenous people, by reducing waste, increasing recycling, prioritizing the use of recycled materials, and keeping an open mind to ways we can improve our impact on this land so that play and learning may abound.   

Who We Serve 

  • Marbles understands that sustainability and stewardship also encompass social equity. We aim to be a safe and playful space for all visitors.  

  • Marbles recognizes that play helps foster resiliency and problem-solving abilities – two skills that are crucial for building sustainable futures.  

  • Marbles does this work to engage and connect our community, to honor people who have come before us, and to conserve and protect resources for future generations.  

Marbles Kids Museum will continuously seek ways to reduce our carbon footprint and improve our environmental practices.
