Little Ninja will kick your ass on Earth Day

Aww schucks ma, he's so cute, can we keep 'em?

Pictured above is an eco friendly creature affectionately referred to as Forest Spirit Wee Ninja . 100% organic, sustainable, and handmade, the little bugger was created in celebration of Earth Day using the following materials:
~ The fabric and thread used to form the body and head are constructed of organic cotton/hemp
~ The mask around the eyes is constructed of natural wool and leaves which are also naturally dyed
~ The eyes are wood, bio-degradable and natural
~ A hemp cord was used for the hang tag and leaf satchel, the hand-cut leaves are naturally dyed and 100% wool felt
~ The stuffing is kapok tree fiber: an all-natural fiber pulled from the seed pods of the kapok tree
~ The glue used to adhere the mask and eyes is non-toxic

"Now more than ever it's important to consider the impact we have on our environment. The Forest Ninja project is as much an exploration of the organic and sustainable materials available as it is a new addition to the Ninjatown line. By supporting the companies that produce such materials, we hope to raise awareness of what's available, and new ways to use them. In addition, we know that every component that goes into the Forest Spirit is completely bio-degradable - it won't sit in a landfill for thousands of years. The Forest Spirit came from the forest and it can become one with it some day!" says developer Shawnimals.

Something to think about my friends, something to think about...
