Planet Buddies, an environmentally conscious child friendly accessory brand announces their first charitable partnerships in pledge to educate and support conservation efforts and educate children through use of technology.
Successfully launching in the summer of 2020, Planet Buddies products were designed and created specifically for children. The Planet Buddies brand was born out of a dedication in raising awareness for endangered animals all over the world and educating children on what they can do to help.
Starting in January, the partnership will see an annual investment made to these two highly regarded and respected UK based charities. Planet Buddies products will be split across the charities, for example, water-based product packaging like ‘Noah the Whale’ will bare the charity logo and support for the Marine Conservation Society. ‘Olive the Owl’ and land-based animals will carry the World Land Trust logo and investments here will go towards specific programs like Keepers of the Wild which supports many of their partner organisations to employ local men and women as rangers, straight into conservation’s frontline.
“In partnering with the Marine Conversation Society and World Land Trust, we stay true to our core values; supporting conservation efforts and educating future generations on their actions towards the environment. At the same time, respecting and utilising the role technology plays in how Children can learn with fun and engaging products” explains Adam Bailey, Marketing Director at Planet Buddies. He continues “demand has exploded this year due to more children learning remotely and parents making more considered purchases to protect and educate their young families at home”
The Planet Buddies product range includes a family of headphones, true wireless speakers and tablet cushions, all representing endangered, vulnerable or threatened species including ‘Pepper the Penguin’ and ‘Olive the Owl’. The products each have a story about its character, why they are endangered and practical tips on what children can do to help protect all life on our planet such as turning off lights when they leave a room.
Following on from their successful launch in September this year Planet Buddies are launching brand new products to the market, all of which will be linked to the same wonderful colourful characters. Fantastic products including Light Switch Stickers, Wardrobe Dividers, Lunch Bags and many more additions to the already popular technology line.
Katharine Sharp – Corporate Partnerships Manager, Marine Conservation Society “We were thrilled when Planet Buddies approached us with an aim to work together and through the sale of their wonderful products raise some much-needed funds for our work. Their products are not
only beautifully made and kind to the environment, but they encourage positive messaging around how to care for and look after our planet, something which supports the work of our own Education team. We are excited to work together to spread the word about how amazing our marine environment is, and how important it is to look after it. A huge thank you to Planet Buddies for their support.”
