FILLING: 100% recycled PET (a type of polyester made from recycled plastic bottles). The smooth fibres of polyester generally tend to be dust mite deterrent and, in turn, hypoallergenic.
WHITENING, DYEING, FINISHING: The dyes used are low-impact, non-toxic, reactive dyes. Only an oxygen whitening process is used to whiten the fabrics, where necessary. No chlorine or bleaches are used and all are in compliance with organic and Oeko-Tex 100's standards.
The reactive dyes are so-named for their low environmental impact and the way in which they react very effectively with the fabric, minimising pollution and eliminating the need for other further processes such as the use of colour-fasting agents. The finished cotton fabrics are covered by the Oeko-Tex 100 certification.
MANUFACTURE ETHICS: These toys are made in a factory that supports its employees with fair wages, no forced or child labour, reasonable working hours, safe, clean, working conditions and facilities for first-aid and sickness. Both breakfast and lunch meals are provided for the workers and a stress-free and happy work environment is encouraged.
