The animals on our cereal boxes aren’t just for fun. Every animal on our packaging represents an animal EnviroKidz supports. Each time you purchase an EnviroKidz product, 1% of the sales are donated to organizations supporting endangered species, habitat conservation and environmental education for kids worldwide.
You might’ve noticed our ‘Choco Chimps’ cereal features the Chimpanzees. Whenever you purchase a box of Choco Chimps cereal, you are helping to support the Jane Goodall Institute who rescues Chimps from commercial pet and bushmeat trade and brings them to their rehabilitation centre. The Institute also works with local communities and helps to protect Chimp habitats through conservation and education.
Chimps are human relatives who share 95 to 98% our DNA, and are more closely related to humans than gorillas. The Institute also works on improving the lives of individuals living near chimp habitats by combining conservation with education. (To learn more about chimps and the Jane Goodall Institute, read on here.)
EnviroKidz wants to help get kids (and parents!) passionate about animals and their habitats – and what better place to start than to learn a little about them!
