You guys already know that we just got back from New York after participating in the ENK Children's Club show. But did you know that our booth was made entirely of cardboard!?
Thanks to the folks at Flatgoods, we were able to bring our values of recycling and reusing to every aspect of our booth.
Read more about our sustainable and reusable booth here and below.
Nas and Sydney rocking at the Nawi booth in New York during ENK Children's Club
"Nas ordered some furniture and a big backdrop for the ENK Children’s Club tradeshow in New York City on Oct. 19-21, 2014.
FG: Hi Nas! Thanks for chatting with me. For starters, tell us a little bit about yourself. What is Nawi Kids?
Nas: Nawi Kids is a line of kids gifts (plush toys, blankies, etc) based on our dinosaur characters: Coco, Ryder, and Frankie – more coming soon!
Inspired by one little girl’s love of dinosaurs, and her parents frustrating search for cute dinosaurs that spoke to girls, Nawi Kids was born in 2013. All our products are made in USA, with sustainability in mind, and packaged in reusable and re-sealable pouches.
FG: What led you to Flatgoods and to cardboard furniture in general? Sustainability? Uniqueness? Affordability?
Nas: Because we make all our products with sustainability in mind, when looking to furnish our trade show space, it was important for us to find something reusable, easy to move, but cool! When I saw that I could customize everything, I knew Flatgoods would be perfect.

Nas: The response was overwhelmingly positive. People were intrigued, and I can say that we had the coolest booth at the show.
FG: Do you plan to re-use your items?

FG: Okay, last question! Would you recommend Flatgoods to a friend? Why/why not?
