Change Through Education

For the fourth consecutive year, we are excited to offer #OperationConservation. OC takes place during Earth Day Week, and is when we identify endangered species in our line to bring awareness and educate while also taking a percentage of gross sales of those items and donating them to an organization our team identifies. If you see below, we have created unique postcards that are available for digital distribution and print-ready, focusing on specific environmental topics and how to implement change in your everyday life actively.

Please join us and make a conscious effort to purchase these items while also educating your customers on these important environmental topics.

plush for the planet lesson: plastic waste. At least 8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year, and make up 80% of all marine debris from surface waters to deep-sea sediments. Common items include food wrappers, beverage bottles, grocery bags, straws, and take out containers, all made of plastic.
Plush for the planet lesson: animal agriculture. A "factory farm" is a large-scale industrial operation that houses thousands of animals raised for food- such as chickens, turkeys, cows, and pigs- and treats them with hormones and antibiotics to prevent disease and maximize their growth and food output.
Plush for the planet lesson: deforestation. Deforestation refers to the decrease in forest areas across the world that are lost for other uses such as agricultural crop lands, urbanization, or mining activities. Greatly accelerated by human activities since 1960, deforestation has been negatively affecting natural ecosystems, biodiversity, and the climate.
Plush for the planet lesson: sustainable food practice. Eating sustainably does more than just fuel your body, it fuels our environment! The sustainable food model looks at the way we produce, process, distribute, and consume our foods. Modern farming has led to soil depletion and damaged ecosystems. By making the switch to a more plant-focused diet, you'll fuel your body to allow more self-healing while encouraging a sustainable environment.
