OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU
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.
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.
