Creating toys with longevity is what Tenderleaf strive to do best. Every year, they spend around two months working alongside their suppliers Mentari International in Indonesia, makers of all Tender Leaf Toys. Their family-run factory operates with high standards of training, wellbeing and respect and provides dependable employment for hundreds of local villagers. They are deeply committed to protecting Indonesia’s natural resources and only work with reclaimed rubberwood, 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. They also support Eden Projects here in the UK, who are now recognised as one of the most effective re-forestation projects on the planet.
