The dream of a father
On a hot summer day in June 2011, Steven van Bommel, father of two daughters came home one day from a long day of work. Van Bommel had been producing plastic toys for the past few years and was busy on the promotional activity of it. He grew up in a family business, where he started working as a young boy in 1986. In the year 2000, after 14 years of hard work, he took over the company from his father who retired. At that time, the company was going through a turbulent time. The two daughters were always interested in the activities of their father. The youngest of the two asked that evening why her father still made toys in the far east from normal plastic. She told her father that the current products were harming the environment around him and that of the next generation. At school that same day she learned that plastic is for the most part made of petroleum. Petroleum is a scarce raw material that causes enormous damage to the environment. The productions of these plastics results in high CO2 emissions.
