With the anniversary of Steve Irwin’s unfortunate death approaching next week, daughter Bindi Irwin is making sure her father’s conservation efforts continue on. The new Bindi Wear International fashion line is an eco-friendly collection of t-shirts, jumpers, swimwear, sleepwear, hats, bags and shoes that carry environmental messages. An amazing 100% of the profits from the nine-year-old’s line will will be used to fund Australia Zoo’s conservation programs. From the article,
“The tags are made from recycled cardboard, the soles on the shoes are made with recycled rubber. ‘They are clothes with a message,’ Bindi said in Las Vegas. ‘We’re getting just further and further away from animals. If we keep making them into boots, bags and belts what are we going to be left with?'”
Apparently, not only are Australian stores lining up to sell the clothing, but American companies are also extremely interested in stocking up. This comes as little surprise as Steve Irwin’s passing resulted in an extreme amount of outpouring from the States, where his Crocodile Hunter television series was immensely popular. We wish Bindi the best with her new venture and know her Dad would be proud. Hit the jump for more.
