Chico, California (PRWEB) August 26, 2013
Ivy Street Distributing, the exclusive distributor of Lassig products in the United States, announces today the availability of the new Wildlife Collection, the newest line of backpacks, trolley bags, washbags, dish sets, and bibs that all support the Momella Foundations Sparkling Elephant Project.
The Momella Foundation aims to contribute towards the positive development of the Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro regions to enable it to consciously and proudly carry the name Momella which means “shine” or “sparkle” in the local Maasai language. The Sparkling Elephant Project is a conservation project focused on raising the awareness of local endangered wildlife and enhancing the creativity and education of children in Eastern Tanzania.
The new designs feature elephants, lions, tigers, turtles, giraffe, rhino and ostriches in vibrant colors that children enjoy. The bags are all consistent with the Lassig legacy of marrying design and functionality like no other. The bags are made of eco-friendly materials, and are free of PVC, nickel, AZO dyes, cadmium, and phthalates.
“This line is particularly intriguing given the requests from real parents who have expressed their child’s interest or adoration for wildlife characters,” says David Beerman, CEO of Ivy Street Distributing. “Being able to bring a line that kids will love, and parents will find make their lives easier, is only enhanced by knowing that we are able to give back to a global foundation.”
The bags will be available starting August 15, 2013 and can be found at lassigusa.com as well as specialty boutiques. The price of the product is set to be: $19-$50. The accessories will be available the end of August including bibs $9-$12 and dish sets $27.
