Enjoy A Fun Recyclable Playhouse and Raise Money for Habitat for Humanity!

Cascades is pleased to present its new cardboard playhouse for children, My Pretty Playhouse, made from 100% recycled cardboard. Cascades is also proud to announce its partnership with Habitat for Humanity, whose mission is to build houses for families in need. For each playhouse sold, Cascades will donate two dollars to the organization in Canada or the United States.

"Since its creation 45 years ago, Cascades has always been involved with the community. It was only natural to partner with Habitat for Humanity, who offers direct assistance to families in need," explained Carl Blanchet, Corporate Director of Business Development at Cascades. In the coming months, a number of Cascades employees will roll up their sleeves for a day of volunteering on a Habitat for Humanity housing construction project.

Small and Affordable

The playhouse is part of the line of children's playhouses available at Boutique Cascades. The advantage of this playhouse is its small size and affordable price. It fits nicely into smaller areas such as apartments, condos and daycares. Designed for children three years and up, the playhouse is safe and easy to assemble, and can be recycled when no longer needed. This customizable playhouse will instantly be a favourite with the little ones, providing hours of entertainment and a place to draw and use their imaginations. What a great way to stimulate children's creativity and give mom a break!
