Planet Buddies, an environmentally conscious, child friendly accessory brand has announced its first charitable partnership in a pledge to educate and support conservation efforts and educate children through use of technology.
Successfully launched in the summer of 2020, Planet Buddies products are designed and created specifically for children. The Planet Buddies brand was born out of a dedication to raising awareness for endangered animals all over the world and educating children on what they can do to help.
Starting this month, the partnership will see an annual investment made to 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 bear 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.
