Critically Endangered Socks Review

We are a nation of animal lovers; no matter whether they’re feathery, fluffy or scaly – animals have a special place in our hearts. Because of this, we have a duty to protect them. That’s where Critically Endangered Socks come in.

However, we are all aware that there are some critically endangered species of animals out there. They’re trying their hardest to exist in an environment that’s ever changing and facing unnatural challenges directly associated with human. It’s alarming to realise just how much human interference has stunted the population of many beloved species, such as Borneo Orangutans and Hawksbill Turtles

Thankfully there’s a way that we can help these critically endangered species. It doesn’t involve flying out to the rainforest and volunteering your help for a few months (although what an amazing experience that would be!), but rather it starts with your socks.

*Critically Endangered Socks sent me a pair of their Borneo Orangutan socks in order for me to give an honest review. All thoughts and images are my own.

Yes. Socks!

Critically Endangered Socks is a company that works alongside charities, like NGO Friends Of The National Parks Foundation, to help support five of the world’s most critically endangered species.

It started ten years ago, when Critically Endangered Socks founder visited Borneo and spotted the endangered orangutans for the first time. When he visited once more ten years later, he found that the once lush rainforest had fallen victim to palm oil plantations and illegal logging.

This spurred founder Dom to get in touch with other organisations and form Critically Endangered Socks. Their aim is to help protect these animals through conservation and education.

I was lucky enough to be sent a pair of Critically Endangered Socks to review. I think it’s important to know that even when you’re spending money on a charitable cause, the product you’re getting in return is of a nice quality.

More about Critically Endangered Socks

The first thing I’m going to say about these socks is that they’re on the pricey side. But you’ve got to remember that some of the profits go directly toward helping to save the world’s most needing and deserving animals. The Critically Endangered Socks website states that fashion is not a sustainable industry, however they do try to be as kind to the planet as possible by using natural and fast growing bamboo as well as natural cotton.

For your £12, you get your socks – there are five to choose from, each representing the top most critically endangered animals on the planet – a fact sheet about your chosen species and they both come in a fully recyclable box which fits through your letterbox.

The socks are nice and soft, they’re extremely comfortable and stretchy.

I like that the colours used represent the endangered animal they help fund support for. My favourite feature is the little embroidered silhouette of your chosen animal at the top! This is a lovely little touch and a gentle reminder that by purchasing these socks, you’ve helped save some of the planets most critically endangered animals.

I also really love that the colour choices represent the animals. For example, my socks are orange – representing the Borneo Orangutan. My favourite socks from the Critically Endangered Socks website are the Amur Leopard socks, which are grey and blue.

The 5 critically endangered animals these socks help

You can choose between five of the world’s most endangered species:

The Borneo Orangutan

The Amur Leopard

The Hawksbill Turtle

The Sumatran Elephant

The Maui Dolphin

Or you can purchase all five as a bundle deal. If you buy 3 pairs or more, you become eligible for free UK shipping.

The fact sheets that come with the Critically Endangered Socks give you a little overview of the animal you’ve chosen and tells you what the money from your purchase has helped fund. For example, the Borneo Orangutan socks help Friends Of The National Parks Foundation buy rainforest space in Borneo, helping to protect on conserve the Orangutans natural habitat from palm oil plantations and illegal logging. The Hawksbill Turtle socks (a beautiful sea green and blue sock) help the Oceanic Society fund Sea Turtle grants, teach communities about marines conservation in Bangladesh and help communities identify the key habitats for Hawksbill Turtles.

Give Back To The Planet With This Thoughtful Gift

So, if like me, you know some mad animal lovers, these Critically Endangered Socks would make a wonderful, thoughtful gift – and not just for them. Or, if you’re looking for a sustainable way to support the species that our society has endangered, “wearing your heart of your feet” is a great way to get involved and do your bit to help save the planet.

    I like the concept. I hope they are giving a good % to the charities. The socks look great – are they made of bamboo?

    This is such a great idea! There’s so many different ways to be kinder to the earth/animals these days but so many get forgotten about – who would have thought you could get critically endangered socks! x

    Wht a lovely way to donate to a good cause. My daughter is learning about palm oil and the death of lots of endangered species such as the orangutans so would love this x

    This is such a great cause. I mean we all need socks – I would definitely prefer my money to go to a cause like this than create more waste.

    I am a huge sock fan (my husband bans me from buying any more as I have far too many) but knowing that purchasing these and helping to save endangered animals like the Sumatran elephan seems like an expense that I could justify the purchase for.

    I love fabrics made with bamboo, they are so soft. These look like a great way of donating and helping to save our planet

  11. March 12, 2019 / 6:48 pm

    Wow! Such a great way to help without going somewhere and just starting of with your socks. I love the idea. I will need to get one. Good job!
