Earth friendly

Our suppliers Mentari International are deeply committed to protecting Indonesia’s natural resources and only work with reclaimed rubber wood, a by-product of the latex industry. In addition, for every reclaimed tree it uses, Mentari plants a new one, driving ahead the cycle of regeneration. Mentari/Tender Leaf Toys have been awarded the ICTI Ethical Toy Program seal of approval for their ethical and sustainable supply chain. 


At ThreadBear Design, we are proud to be Seed Partners with Eden Reforestation Projects. For every order placed with us, including orders for Tender Leaf Toys, we are committed to planting 10 trees with Eden in areas around the world badly affected by deforestation.

Planting Trees



The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else is going to save it.

That’s just not going to happen.

Here at ThreadBear Design and TenderLeaf Toys, as manufacturers of wooden toys, we have an obligation to replace timber and for many years now we have been paying to replant the trees we use.
But replacing trees is simply not enough: we needed to do more.
Much more.

Our beautiful planet is choking to death and many communities are starving.
So we researched all the available schemes and saw that the 
Eden Projects best supports our aims and values.

Eden Projects are now recognised as one of the most effective re-forestation projects on the planet.
By focussing on areas of high unemployment they have created 3,500 jobs in some of the hardest hit places in the world: Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, Indonesia and Mozambique.

The scheme to, “hire a village and plant a forest” has already led to the planting of 250 million trees, and ensured an income for hard pressed people.

It’s good to know that when you buy a toy for your child, not only are you giving a lasting gift to inspire their imagination, you are actively helping to ensure their future, and ensure a fair wage for poverty stricken communities across the world.

Join us and help achieve the goal of 100 million new trees every year.
