Tender Leaf Toys – $6 – $60
Toys for this generation, trees for the next. Tender Leaf Toys only works with reclaimed rubberwood, a by-product of the latex industry.

Their packaging is recycled cardboard, and they are close to eliminating single-use plastics, resulting in a perfect toy you can feel good about.
