Eastman and Ducks for Change: A sustainable collaboration

At Eastman, people are at the heart of our business and for us, corporate social responsibility is more than just philanthropy. It shapes how we operate. So, we invest in our local communities as well as global initiatives where we see potential for collective impact. We are proud to share the successes of our efforts with the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People (DMTFYP) and their program known as Ducks for Change.

 

Ducks for Change is a fundraising campaign through DMTFYP, featuring a variety of novelty toy ducks powered by Eastman 168™ non-phthalate plasticizer.

The ducks are sold in participating Hilton Worldwide hotels around Europe to raise money for charitable grants. They are sold in themed sets of three; you can buy intrepid emergency service ducks, fairy tale characters, festivalgoers, and much more! In keeping with the ethos of the Foundation, many of the ducks reflect aspirational career choices for young people such as the chef, firefighter, and pilot ducks.

The Eastman and DMTFYP relationship started in 2013 after an Eastman employee discovered the Ducks for Change sets for sale at a hotel in Amsterdam. Since then, Ducks for Change has created 10 new duck ranges sponsored by Eastman 168™ non-phthalate plasticizer.
