This Winter I discovered The Elephant Pants. Handmade in Thailand, this brand is dedicated to saving the elephants. Having sold over 400,000 pair of pants and donated over $127,000 USD since their launch in 2014, The Elephant Pants is working on making the world a safer place for elephants. I love these pants, their mission even more and decided to share it with you!
$1 USD per item sold is donated to organizations dedicated to saving elephants. Some of their partners include
“With people being the #1 cause of this steady population decline, we feel that it is our duty to do what we can to bring it to an end. Together, we can create a sustainable future where elephants thrive.” – The Elephant Pants
It all started with two friends. Two friends that clicked when looking up at an elephant and understood why they had been revered for thousands of years and why so many people traveled far and wide to see them. From there, they decided to help and put an end to the exploitation of saving them: by making the most comfortable pants that anybody had ever worn. Ever.
Let me tell you: they did. Here I am sitting, writing this article, wearing one of the most comfortable pants I have ever worn.
It is estimated that there were once 7-10 million African elephants roaming the African Continent while around 200,000 Asian elephants lived in the forests and grasslands of Southern Asia. Sadly, due to habitat loss and human conflict, both of these populations have dwindled severely. From 2010 to 2012 alone, an estimated 100,000 elephants were poached for ivory. That’s essentially one elephant loss every 15 minutes—a 50 percent decline in population in the past 35 years. There are roughly 470,000 African Elephants left in the wild and less than 40,000 Asian elephants. The high rate of elephant deaths combined with their incredibly long gestation period (22 months) could lead to a world without wild elephants by 2050.
The brand has worked and donated to the following partners:
