Our Giving Network
Giving away all these bears to children in need is hard work! To make sure our precious teddy bears get into the right little hands we have partnered with a number of reputable charitable organizations. They each bring their own expertise to the process, and ensure that each gifted teddy bear is personally delivered with love and care to just the right child. Whether it’s to children with a life-threatening illness, an underprivileged home, or a needy veteran’s family, our bears end up just where we want them: with someone who could use a smile. We love what we do, and only partner with organizations that share our values.
Our organic faux fur is probably the closest thing to hugging a real bear.
And way, way safer.
A child's toy is an incredibly intimate item. We think the things our little ones play with and sleep with should meet the same high standards as the food they eat and the clothes they wear. After two years and thousands of revisions, we have developed the safest, softest materials possible. We care that the toy your child turns to for comfort is up to the challenge. This isn't the rough kid from down the street; this is a playmate that needs no supervision.
100% Certified Organic Hemp
This miracle fiber is a long-overdue addition to the mainstream fabric market. Hemp is remarkable in its diversity, just like some precocious kids we know. No other all-natural fabric endures the knock-down, drag-out lifestyle of an energetic child. And for you sensitive types, hemp shines as a naturally antibacterial option. Hemp wears well too, so your bear will only get better over time.
100% Certified Organic Cotton
Turns out, not all cotton is created equal. While traditional cotton undergoes waves of pesticides, fertilizers and post-harvest treatments, our cotton is clean. The all-natural farming and processing methods of our organic cotton fabrics are developed without a host of chemicals. Our bears deliver the classically soft and reliable cotton feel, plus a few good feels for sustainability. Win-win!
GOTS Organic Certification
Bears For Humanity uses 100% certified organic materials, as rated by the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) organization. GOTS is the world’s foremost standard for textiles made from organic fibers, which means that every aspect of our fabrics - from raw material production to finishing - is environmentally and socially responsible. We are proud to be the best organic teddy bear on the market, and we have the certification to prove it.
