Eco-Friendly Toy Maker, HOSUNG NY Inc., and the Jane Goodall Institute Partner to Create ‘My Natural’ Wild Animal Plush Toys
NEW YORK, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ — Hosung, a premiere eco-friendly plush toy maker known for its environmentally sustainable miYim organic toy line, has partnered with the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) to design and manufacture an alternative to chemically treated toys.
The all-natural plush toys, under Hosung’s award-winning eco-friendly brand name “My Natural,” will help support the Jane Goodall Institute’s efforts to empower people to make a difference for all living things.
The My Natural “Jane Goodall Wild Animal Collection” is a line of plush toys depicting animals from various habitats across the globe. The toys will be made from certified non-toxic unprocessed cotton and colored with Hosung’s all-natural PureWaterWash process.
“We are thrilled with the opportunity to work with the Jane Goodall Institute as our organizations share similar values,” says Serah Chae, president of Hosung. “We believe that the future of the planet lies in educating our children so a partnership with the Institute is a natural fit for us.”
Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of JGI and a UN Messenger of Peace, established the Institute in 1977 to continue her pioneering research on chimpanzee behavior — research that transformed scientific perceptions of the relationship between humans and animals. Today, JGI is also a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats and its initiatives include community-centered conservation efforts in Africa and Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, a global environmental and humanitarian program for youth from preschool to college.
To raise awareness about its mission, JGI has forged new and exciting partnerships’ with leading consumer goods companies like Hosung that are equally committed to making the world a better place for generations to come.
The My Natural “Jane Goodall Wild Animal Collection” will be available this spring, just in time for Earth Day 2010.
