I do not know if I am proud or sad to be featuring Critically Endagered socks. I am proud as it gives me the chance to raise awareness of critically endagered animals around the world. But I am sad that these animals need awareness raising to save them
About Critically Endangered Socks
10 years ago the founder of Critically Endangered Socks Dom Desmond visited Borneo and one of the world’s oldest rainforests and a plethora of critically endangered spercies. Dom visited the island’s northern jungles and spotted the critically endangered Borneo orangutans int he wild for the first time.
Going forward 10 years and the once lush rainforests have fallen victim to palm oil plantations and illegal logging.
In 2017 Dom returned to Borneo and on witnessing the sites of destruction the the rainforests had become. He met with Friends of the National Parks Foundation, who work to protect and restore areas of primary rainforest by purchasing it.
This is where Dom thought up Critically Endagered Socks, whose mission is to eventually help every critically endangered animal on the brink of survival by selling the most beautiful crafted, ethical products they can create.
