Buyer Beware Eco NOT
The Green Movement is growing but are all these manufacturers truly friends of the environment? While protecting our environment it is essential not to be fooled by false claims. A recent Twitter post caught our attention;
So very New York! Step into Madison Avenue. This white and beige horn cuff is carved from naturally shedded buffalo horn from Africa. http://tinyurl.com/EcoNOT
When do buffalo shed their horns? They don't. Their horns are permanently on their heads just like the horns are on a bull or cow. African buffalo are threatened by habitat loss and hunting pressures ( IUCN Antelope Specialist Group, 2008).
