About PlanToys®: Safe and Green Toys from an Innovative Company

Thailand based company PlanToys (Plan Creations Co. Ltd)is the world's first and largest manufacturer of recycled wooden toys. PlanToys comes from rubberwood trees that are too old to produce latex. Prior to PlanToys, these trees were cut, burned and discarded, and hence creating additional carbon emissions. Through PlanToys these trees are re-used to create innovative and safe wooden toys loved by children around the world. There is no deforestation involved in the harvesting of rubberwood, as felled trees are replanted with new ones. Rubberwood is an eco-friendly, sustainable, high quality wood.


PlanToys selects the SAFEST and MOST ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENLDY materials:

-Organic Rubberwood:
All PlanToys are made with clean, natural rubberwood from rubber trees which no longer produce latex. To keep the rubberwood pure, no fertilizer is added to the soil for three years before the trees are cut. To strengthen the wood, PlanToys uses a special chemical-free kiln drying process.

-E-Zero Glue
PlanToys are assembled using a proprietary, non-formaldehyde E-Zero glue instead of the commonly-used toxic wood glues.

-Water Based Dye
PlanToys does not use dyes containing lead or any other heavy metals. They use only safe, non-toxic water-based dyes on all of their toys.

-Recycled and Recyclable Material
PlanToys uses recycled and recyclable material to minimize their impact on the environment.

-Soy Ink & Water based Ink
PlanToys uses soy and water-based inks on their printed materials. These inks are more readily biodegradable and can be recycled more efficiently than standard chemical ink.
