Maple Landmark - Wooden Toys
Maple Landmark manufactures wooden toys like building blocks, ABC blocks, cars, trucks, puzzles, rattles, rocking horses, trains (including their well known Name Trains), and wooden board games. Located in Vermont, Maple Landmark's 40 employees produce all of the products themselves from locally harvested wood. Most of the lumber comes from a forest nine miles from their shop. Part of Maple Landmark's mission statement is to practice good stewardship of the environment. They strive to reduce waste, reuse, and recycle, and they strive to use suppliers who meet the same standard they set for themselves. Their sawdust is reused by local farmers for cattle bedding and wood scraps are available for local residents to use for kindling. Maple Landmark uses reclaimed packing and shipping materials and they accept waste packaging, magazines, and junk mail from the community to shred for packing material. Recycling has become a way of life for the employees at Maple Landmark. The company's products are sold to thousands of toy stores, gift shops, and catalogs plus all of their products are available for purchase online.
