subQuark is Erath-friendlyEco-friendly is no longer enough—having all materials being recyclable isn't the best that we can do. The sustainable use of resources, including how labor is treated, is a core tenet for us. Sustainability isn't marketing, it's a challenge to which we must all rise.

Certifications earned by our game components:

We don't have confirmation of certifications for our Chessex dice which are manufactured in England, Germany, and Denmark, or for our magnetic labels (their factory is 100% solar-powered) or rules paper.

As a former professor of Environmental Science and a former laboratory geologist, we only show the certifications we've confirmed (via chain-of-custody).

We're able to select our vendors because we do the labor ourselves. And spending a few cents more on sustainable meeples is something we choose to do. But it does limit how custom we can be—a side benefit is that off-the-shelf components also have a smaller carbon footprint than custom-made components.

When you play our games, you're voting for more responsible game development and accountability.

Your support spurs us on to become better with each game—thank you.
