Saving nature is one of the commissions we humans have been given here on earth. We wish to lend our resources with those charged with protecting the elephants from poaching for their ivory. A portion of the profits from everyone of our Eco-Ivory products will be shared with those organizations whose purpose it is to protect the elephants and other species throughout our planet. Eco-Ivory is a proprietary product created in our Massachusetts studio. It has the look and feel of real ivory but is a man-made product. No animals were harmed or used in any way. This is a USA made, man-made product.
