Children’s book authors Stu French and Teigan Margetts created their own publishing house, Ethicool Books, to tells stories about the world’s big issues to inspire kids to create positive change.
The Melbourne-based husband and wife team produce illustrated children’s books for kids aged 0-6, that make storytime both special and meaningful, tackling social issues such as environmental responsibility and recycling with messages about making the planet more equitable and sustainable.
As part of 1% for the Planet, the publishing house donates 1% of their annual revenue to sustainability not-for-profits.
In a challenging year, the pair launched in February and then received an extra boost when they won an Amazon Launchpad SMB Innovation Grant, which they’re using to expand globally in 2021.
In the meantime, they now have 15 books in the range, so if you’re looking for books for children with stories that matter, Ethicool has a wide range of beautiful books available from Amazon Australia.
