3 minute video from World Land Trust

This 3 minute video from World Land Trust gives some background on their campaign, a project we endorse and support at Elephant Approved, to widen an existing elephant corridor in India. The matching campaign is over, but you can still support their efforts by purchasing Elephant Approved products or by contributing directly to WLT/WTI, via the information included in this video - 

*One additional bit of information regarding this and similar projects - work that benefits a keystone species or a flagship species generally benefits a wide range of other species as well, just as protecting a habitat protects wildlife in general. We've referred to this as an "Elephant Corridor" but this particular will benefit a broad array of wildlife species, including tigers.

Creating an Elephant Approved™ stamp

The Elephant Approved™ creative journey continues.  Here are photos of the process of creating a linoleum block to hand stamp our natural linen bags with our Elephant Approved™ logo.  The bags will be used as packaging for our very special Keepsake Elephant Approved™ Tea Infusers.  We wanted a reusable, soft housing for the infusers that can be utilized to keep them safe when not in use or on display.  We will update with photos of the  printed bags when they are finished.
