Animal Hats Crafts

As part of my Campaigner job at Liberation Foods CIC (the UK’s only farmer owned, Fairtrade nut company) I ran fair trade craft workshops for children. I upcycled the cardboard packaging which Liberation nut packs are delivered in, to create animal hats.

The elephant design was inspired by a solar powered ‘elephant friendly’ fence which the Keralan nut farmers use as a deterrent. Another interesting animal link for Liberation is the Agouti/ Jochi, a small mammal with an important role in the lifecycle of the Brazil nut tree. Liberation Brazil nuts are gathered from the Bolivian Amazon.
