Our wooden toys are made from rubberwood grown in Vietnam which is an eco-friendly, sustainable and high quality timber.
The rubber tree produces sap which is used as latex for rubber-based products around the world. Rubber trees produce latex for approximately 25 to 30 years after which it dies. In the past, rubber trees that were no longer producing latex would be burned. Now, these discarded trees are being used to make environmentally friendly toys and even furniture.
New rubber trees are always being planted in their place. This process of recycling ensures that deforestation is never an issue.
Studies show that rubberwood plantations can be as efficient as natural forest in removing carbon-dioxide from the air, making rubberwood an environmentally friendly choice.
Why are rubberwood toys environmentally friendly?
Rubber wood perishes easily when discarded therefore helping to protect the environment.
It only takes 25 – 30 years to grow an impressive 75 feet or more over their lifetime.
Rubberwood plantations are plentiful and aren’t restricted for logging.
Other timbers are felled solely for producing furniture. Rubberwood is used only after the tree completes its latex-producing cycle and dies.
Sawdust from the wood is used to make compressed fuel cubes and the finer dust is used to manufacture incense sticks.
Rubberwood is strong, flexible, resistant to fungus, bacteria and mould.
Plantation rubber trees give our wooden toys the natural beauty of wood patterns, while leaving unharmed natural forests.
