Sustainable Toy Design in China

In 2004, toy company Hape hosted China's first UNESCO bamboo workshop. Hape's bamboo toys, the first collection of toys based on this natural resource, grew out of this UNESCO event. Since then, Hape and Founder/CEO Peter Handstein have offered an Annual Bamboo Workshop, inviting international design students to propose and create new ideas. The bamboo facility is in Zheijang, adjacent to their own renewable, sustainable, bamboo forest.
