We Replace What We Use

Trees are important! They clean our air and water, help regulate our climate, and provide an essential habitat for wildlife. It’s imperative that we do our part to ensure the world has healthy forests. Our global reforestation program with One Tree Planted allows us to plant a tree for every tree we use each year.

We Source Responsibly

Recognized by parents as the #1 preschool brand for sustainable toys and for wooden toys, Melissa & Doug is a leader in the industry in responsible supply chain management, using mainly sustainable materials, such as wood and paper, across most of our toys. In 2020, we were the first major toy brand in the U.S. to earn Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) certification for our new stationery line, which was independently certified by SCS Global Services. We are committed to ensuring 100% of paper products and more than half our wood products will be FSC® certified by 2025, meaning these materials come from sustainable, responsibly managed forests.

We Are Carbon Neutral

Reducing our global carbon footprint is essential. We’re proud to announce that we have made a commitment to become carbon neutral in our operations by the end of 2021. The carbon offsets we have purchased are going toward forest management projects in the U.S. and the Brazilian Amazon.
