Eco Snoopers; A Fun Way for Kids to Go Green
Definition: Eco Snoopers (noun) – 1. A band of bulbous-headed, carefree and winsome animal characters whose interests revolve around camaraderie, friendship, and a universal concern for the environment..
Pecoware Company presents the newest in green awareness. Eco Snoopers® is a lovable line of original characters and products calculated to entertain and educate children - from pre-school to emerging tweens – on the benefits of environmental awareness. Slated for release through 2009, Eco Snoopers® are entirely unique to the Pecoware stable of products, and bear no equal in the marketplace today.
Eco Snoopers® enlighten children on how to become environmentally friendly. Early on, designers opted to pattern Eco Snoopers® after a wide array of exotic animals, and gave each a quirky human-like personality. The message being, animals and humans alike are all affected by how we treat the earth. Back-stories were created for each character and these stories will eventually evolve to include a wider array of green issues.
Eco Snoopers® are also global in their make-up. In their back-story, Eco Snoopers® originate from Indonesia, Europe, South America, Asia, Africa…even from a distant plant. Children learn that their relationship to people of varying backgrounds – culturally and environmentally – which highlights the importance of global awareness.
Visually, Eco Snoopers® are edgy with a puckish cartoon quality. They’re symmetrically-askew. They burst with color. They’re a patchwork of patterns and fabrics. They are infinitely cuddly and wholly whimsical.
Educationally, their message is subtle, but the fun generated is totally blatant. Eco Snoopers® do not scare children into environmental awareness. Rather, the Eco Snoopers® make “going green” loads of fun. The plush characters and their accompanying line of activity books treat kids to games and craft activities that range from recycling to organic gardening.
Behind the scenes, Pecoware Company executives steadfastly maintained that Eco Snoopers® was to be an environmentally friendly line of products. Inks, paper and fabrics were tested and reviewed, and months of research was conducted on varying types of recyclable materials. Finally, a formula was approved that would incorporate recycled materials in the manufacture of select Eco Snoopers© products.
