Irwin and Maathai!
Irwin is a camouflage-style print that features a variety of wildlife, including elephants, alligators and bears, in shades of Ribbit and Mirror with dark green and purple accents. Steve Irwin, aka "The Crocodile Hunter," was the inspiration behind this print. Irwin was an Australian wildlife expert and conservationist, in addition to his roles on television. Irwin considered conservation to be the most important part of his work. He once stated, "I consider myself a wildlife warrior. My mission is to save the world's endangered species."
Maathai (pronounced MATH-eye) consists of a floral design that features deep orange, Sassy, White and Mirror flowers on a Blossom background. Small ladybugs add a charming touch to this botanical print. Kenyan botanist and environmental activist, Wangari Muta Maathai, influenced this print. She was the first African woman, and the first environmentalist, to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004. She was awarded the honor for her "contribution to sustainable development, democracy and peace."
These are limited edition prints, available only in bumGenius 4.0 snap closure styles while supplies last. At this time, there are no plans to expand to any other bumGenius, Flip, or Econobum products.
