Ex-zookeeper makes wildlife wearable just in time for Christmas
With Christmas just around the corner, ex-zookeeper and mother of three, Cheryl Wellington has made wildlife wearable, with her new children’s fashion range - Clanwell Wildlife Wears. Cheryl's enthusiasm for the environment and passion for all things wild, motivated her to create a distinctive range of children's sleepwear or casualwear that is comfortable, durable and educational, that also contributes to a great cause. That's right, for every purchase, 10% of the profits will be donated to Earthwatch along with additional contributions being donated by the company. The
funds will go towards a Community Fellowship which will enable one lucky 18-25 year old with a genuine interest in the environment to take part in an international Earthwatch expedition place (flights included).
The Clanwell designs are comfortable, full of fun and feature educational
wildlife illustrations, plus there are great children's fact sheets and wildlife crafts to colour in and make. ‘I wanted to provide parents and children with an alternative to mainstream fashions. Clanwell Wildlife Wears allows children to be individuals while also gaining wildlife education,’ says Cheryl.
Keeta Nova, an early childhood teacher and journalist from Sydney,
‘Clanwell Wildlife Wears is introducing the concepts of wildlife and
fauna protection to children, in ways they can love and understand. Even
very young children can show compassion for others and a genuine
interest in important environmental issues.’
There are a range of illustrations to choose from including lady-bugs, panther chameleons, freckled ducks, slender-tailed meerkats and monarch butterflies. Children can have fun mixing and matching the separates, including long
and short sleeve tops, singlets, shorts and long pants. Garments range
in size between 2 and 14 and they are made from the highest quality
fabrics. Purchase a gift with a difference this Christmas from
