Penny Pachyderm Cruelty-Free Leather Elephant Bank

Item # 42480
No longer available

Not putting your change away for a rainy day? Tusk, tusk! Pack your pennies, nickels, and dimes into this friendly fellow and watch them grow into mammoth savings. Our darling elephant is the perfect place for your money -- because it's not peanuts.

Leather is sourced from local Haat markets where the predominantly vegetarian population reveres goats, sheep, cows and buffalo for their value as milk animals, and where a live animal is worth far more than a dead one. Without economic incentive to kill animals for their skin, the artisans instead reclaim skins from animals that died naturally. Our supplier's practices are geared toward creating more respect for all life, as well as for the environment.

  • Cruelty-free leather with nylon lining
  • Button-snap closure on side
  • Not for children under the age of 13
  • 5.5" H x 6.3" W x 1.5 D (6.5 x 6.5 x 3.8 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from India

August 13, 2012 - Awesome product! Bright and beautiful. I was attracted to these banks by their fair-trade, cruelty-free virtues, and have re-ordered for their quality and 'cool factor'...I give them as gifts and they're a big hit. Recommend you purchase more than one...

July 11, 2012 - Fairly small 'piggy' bank, but beautifully done. The colors are vibrant and lovely. LOVE that no animal was killed for its skin, but that nothing was wasted once the animal died on its own.
