Their story began in 2001 just before the “Build Your Own Plush” movement became all the rave. This interactive concept of stuffing your own unstuffed plush animals quickly took off as a great activity for children. The movement quickly created a new division in the plush toy industry that continues to grow with thousands of retailers incorporating the “Build Your Own” model into their stores and vacation resorts worldwide.
Over the last 20 years, The Bear Factory has been the leading plush supplier worldwide in innovation and quality. They have obtained this reputation by serving thousands of customers with the highest quality “un-stuffed plush animals”, offering Custom Plush Lines and providing enhanced safety measures with our Patented Enclosure System.
Through the years they have seen the impact that manufacturing and distribution has had on our planet. It can be overwhelming at times, but taking small steps is what The Bear Factory has done to do their part as a business, and citizens of our beautiful planet. Social and Environmental Awareness are two very important topics they have a strong stance on, and are always looking for ways to improve. Being a family owned and operated company, The Bear Factory shares a close relationship with the local community, and have made a commitment to preserve the area we live in, as well as, the planet we live on.
They are doing this by implementing green practices into their business operations. Some of these include recycling programs, waste management protocols and implementing energy efficient equipment & practices into their daily routine. This commitment is then taken a step further by actively leading local environmental groups to help educate and promote environmental awareness.
Their hope is to inspire others along the way so they too can make an effort to improve their footprint. If you’re looking for some ideas on how you can get started, let The Bear Factory know! They would love to talk with you on what you can do to get started on operating with a green mind.
They had a vision where one day they would be able to offer a green product line that holds up to sustainability standards while also providing an opportunity to educate children on the importance of environmental and animal conservation. A quest that started in 2018, took more then two years of research and development, has led them to #PlushforthePlanet. Plush for the Planet is our Sustainable Collection of plush animals made from 100% recycled fabrics. While holding true to our quality standards, we are proud to offer the world’s first sustainable build your own plush line.
