Bindi Irwin Officially Launches Eco-Friendly Fashion Line, Considers Run For President

Yesterday in Sydney, Australia, Bindi Irwin — daughter of the late Steve Irwin — became the fashion world’s youngest designer by unveiling her Bindi Wear International clothing line. As we’ve mentioned before, the more than 100 different items in the collection will all have some measure of green — with 100% of the profits going towards various conservation efforts. Not only will the clothes carry environmental messages like “Tigers should be loved, not rugs” and “Extinct Stinks!” but where possible, they will also contain recycled materials.

Bindi is also looking ahead — with plans to run for Prime Minister of Australia or President of the United States already on the table. “In America they are looking for the next president and I’ve listened to everybody and, nothing against them, but they are talking about jobs, houses, developments, money, money and more money and there is nothing about conservation,” she said. “I haven’t heard anything about that. We really do need to start doing something – we can’t eat money in the long run.”

Bindi also got heavy on the subject of whaling — something her father was adamantly against. Last year, the Sea Shepherd Society honored his memory by dedicating an anti-whaling boat in his name. Said Bindi, “It’s awful what’s happened – it’s become war. It’s bullets now.”

Oh, by the way, she’s only 9-years-old and her environmental policies are already years ahead of the Bush Administration. Which, frankly, is not surprising.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals
