Meet the Brand – Elephant Branded


“Every purchase provides school equipment for children in Cambodia and Africa”


Who is Elephant Branded?


Elephant Branded was founded by James Munro Boon in 2011. Working for the China office of a London-based Architect firm, James had noticed in his travels throughout Asia and Africa the lack of school supplies available to children.


Whilst in Cambodia, James met up with Pry and Mey who were making bags out of recycled cement. James worked with their design to adapt it to Western markets to use profits made to fund school equipment supplies in Africa and Asia.


James set-up Elephant Branded with a vision to help with the supply of school equipment as every time you buy a product a donation of school is made to children in Africa or Asia. It’s a simple philosophy, but one which has proven to be highly effective.


With eco-friendly values at the core, Elephant Branded has developed a range of products, which are made from recycled and sustainable sources. Buy ethically from Elephant Branded and know that you are donating school supplies to needy school children.
