We’re so excited! National Geographic hosts a trunk show in the museum store at their Washington, DC headquarters. This year, the trunk show will feature bambeco products!
National Geographic is one of the largest nonprofit scientific and educational institutions in the world. It is a leader in the promotion of environmental conservation. We’re proud to partner with National Geographic for the Holiday Trunk Show. “It’s an honor and a privilege to partner with a globally-recognized leader in conservation like National Geographic,” Susan Aplin, bambeco CEO.
“We seek to inspire people to change the way they live, and what they buy,” Aplin continues. “Changing the world isn’t about being radical, but being real. We believe you don’t have to sacrifice style or quality to live sustainably.”
At bambeco, we give over 1% of our profits to environmental causes that support our Core3 concerns—climate change, land preservation, and clean water and waterways. “The National Geographic partnership is an ideal fit,” Aplin explains. “Their focus is using science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. At bambeco, every product has a story to tell, and every home should tell a thousand stories.”
The National Geographic Trunk Show runs December 3 through December 5, 2014 at the National Geographic Museum Store in Washington, DC.
