HELP OUT A TALL BLONDE!CELEBRATE WORLD GIRAFFE DAY, JUNE 21
Finn + Emma’s Giraffe Collection Will Inspire You For World Giraffe Day, June 21***
June 21 is World Giraffe Day, an annual event to celebrate these amazing animals, raise awareness toward the challenges that they face in the wild and create understanding about what can be done to save the species.
With only 100,000 giraffe remaining in the wild—a number that lists them as ‘vulnerable’ to extinction—and, in particular, only 32,000 Masai giraffe remaining in East Africa, the time is now. According to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF), their numbers have plummeted to half in the last thirty years and that trend hasn’t abated in more recent times.
Finn + Emma’s delightful collection, from their Safari line, of giraffe inspired clothes and accessories is a great reminder to all of us that we affect one another on this earth, even with decisions about what to wear.
Made from 100% G.O.T.S. organic cotton and using only non-toxic eco-friendly dyes, Finn + Emma clothes are made in a fair trade, sustainable setting, so that the kids can be comfy while parents rest easy knowing they have made a sage consumer choice.From rattle buddies and pacifier holders, to soft pyjamas, footies and bodysuits, the Finn + Emma’s Giraffe collection is not only comfortable, but is safe for baby and toddlers to wear. Safe for them and safe for the environment too.
Take some time on the longest day of the year—June 21—to think about the world we live in and the things we can do to help support the interconnectedness of the environment and all living creatures.
Supporting organizations like GCF in the important work that they do to conserve the gentle, long-necked species in the wild is a part of that effort. And it’s so easy to do: a donation of $50 is all it takes to support the field work of a ranger in East Africa for a day!
Taking steps to protect the natural world isn’t just about you. It’s about him. It’s about all of us. How you can help, by shopping for organic clothes and accessories? Synthetics and non-organic cottons contain petrochemical that have been linked to serious health issues. In addition, the production of non-organic fabrics contributes up to 20% to the world’s water pollution problems. The G.O.T.S. certification means that the fabric contains a minimum of 95% of organic fibers and all inks and dyes used must meet certain toxicity and biodegradability standards. That’s a great choice
With styles that are classically designed and fun, kids will love the Giraffe motif and parents can feel confidant that they have made a high-quality, ecologically sound choice.
And then take the time to make a donation to GCF on World Giraffe Day, June 21st.
