The Elephant Pants

August 16

A wonderful organization with an even more amazing cause. This brand popped up on the side of my Facebook one day in an advertisement so I decided to click on it and I am sure glad I did. You may recognize the name, well, that’s because The Elephant Pants were on Shark Tank! I want to tell you more about their cause and why I decided to partner with this brand.

Their Mission:

Their mission is “Save Elephants. Feel Good.” And that’s exactly what they do! The company was founded in 2014 where two friends saw the exploitation of elephants around the world and made a mission to help save them through producing pants. “Producing pants?” You might be questioning this in your head right now and be a little confused. These pants, shorts, and more apparel are the most comfortable and stylish items that you have ever worn with proceeds going to an amazing cause.

Why They Care:

I couldn’t say this any better than how they addressed it on their website so I’m just going to copy and paste their exact words for you to read. “It’s 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. 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.”

How They Help

They partner with other organizations that share similar interests in saving and protecting elephants. Their current partner right now is “Tusk” that supports and connects the people providing the most promising solutions to the iris facing Africa’s wildlife.
