Editor’s Notes: As part of the collaboration between Steadman and Vans, the latter will donate $10,000 towards WildAid to provide crucial support to end the illegal wildlife trade in our lifetimes, deliver comprehensive marine protection and reduce our collective environmental impact. “We hope these vivid depictions of the world’s most imperiled species can help inspire the change we need to save them,” said WildAid CEO Peter Knights.
Keeping environmental protection in mind, the products were designed with the most sustainable materials available including organic cotton, with packaging made from 100% recycled content.
