Also last season: Oscar de la Renta guests found stuffed elephants on their seats.
Now you can make a stylish contribution to the cause without an invite to an ODLR show. Made and the Clinton Foundation have teamed up with Suno, Pamela Love, and Prize Pins on items you can buy now to help save the elephants. Each brand created items from which a percentage of the proceeds from each sale goes to support conservation efforts by leading NGOs like the Wildlife Conservation Society and Conservation International.
“There is no ‘safe’ ivory, as ivory only comes from slaughtered elephants,” Chelsea Clinton told Style.com. These pieces trump ivory in every way.
