FLUFFY FUN: Stephanimals donates money to local environmental organizations for every purchase.
It’s about time stuffed animals came with a cause. Stephanie McPherson’s Stephanimals line pairs handcrafted stuffed animals with a storybook about animals and the environment to help teach kids about all of nature’s creatures. The books are made from recycled materials, and the animals are stuffed with Eco-Fill, a polyester material made from 100 percent post-consumer plastic bottles.
Plus, for each item sold McPherson will donate $2 to local environmental organizations.
