Why do some children have the right to an education whilst others don't? By buying one of our products, we donate school kit to children in Africa or Asia. Simple as that.

Our mission is to make a positive, long term, sustainable change to the communities that produce our products and the children that receive our school kits. One Elephant...One Idea.

Our name is Elephant Branded and the idea is simple. You buy one ethically made, recycled bag or related product and we give one ergonomically designed school bag and kit to a child in Africa or Asia. Simple as that. We pay a fair, competitive wage to local villagers who make our bags out of locally sourced, recycled materials. Not only do they get a fair, reasonable wage but they also have the opportunity to learn valuable skills that permit them to have a sustainable, effective way to get out of poverty. Then we sell it to people like you.

The Elephant has just stepped outside. Now we have to keep him there.
