From our friends Sustainimals, located in Portland, OR!
Sustainimals creates soft, plush stuffed animals, with sustainability as its guiding principle. Each animal is made from fabric, stuffing, and thread that are Global Recycling Standard 4.0 certified. The animals are CPSIA and ASTM F963 compliant, so they are safe for all ages. Not to mention, they are pretty darn cute!
Sustainimals’ founder, Julia Nachman, has always loved animals, both real and stuffed. Growing up, she and her brother used to spend hours playing with their stuffed animals, giving them elaborate names, personalities, and back stories. As an adult, Julia never lost her love for stuffed animals, and set out to to take a product that was so near and dear to her heart, and make it sustainable.
Sustainimals’ first group of stuffed animals is the Arctic Collection, comprised of Annik, the Arctic Hare; Kallik, the Snowy Owl; Klondike, the Polar Bear; Nanook, the Arctic Fox; and Kulu, the Beluga Whale. Each animal is snuggly and adorable, and certain to pique and interest in learning more about the Arctic and the incredible animals that live there.
Every purchase from Sustainimals donates 25% of the profits to animal rights and environmental advocacy non-profits.
