Elephant Branded – One Elephant… One Idea…

ElephantBranded is a simple idea that two University friends, James and Tim, created after working in Africa and Asia. Upon seeing the lack of basic school equipment, James wanted to make a positive, sustainable difference to these young people’s lives and thus ElephantBranded was born.

The idea is that you buy one ethically made, recycled bag or related product and they will give one ergonomically designed school bag and kit to a child in Africa or Asia. The local villagers who make the bags are provided with a fair and competitive wage, as well as the opportunity to learn valuable skills to escape poverty.

 

As a small business, ElephantBranded need all the help that they can get to ensure that their positive message to reduce poverty and enhance lives is heard. Our very own Creative Director, Louise Panayides, has become an ElephantBranded representative and has vowed to help spread their message.

Louise says..

“ElephantBranded is a leading example of how a simple idea can benefit so many people’s lives. The notion to mix quality handmade items that are also fashionable and practical with such an amazing message behind it is what has made me want to get involved.”

We believe that every child deserves the right to an education. If you agree, please help spread the word so that we can all make a difference.
