Creature Candy

Fancy a dangling brown long-eared bat on your tea towel or mug? Yep, so do we...

The brainchild of ecologist and entrepreneur Lizzie Barker, Creature Candy was created to help raise awareness of Britain’s declining and protected wildlife. Focusing on a trio of compelling species (the buff-tailed bumblebee, the brown long-eared bat and the privet hawk-moth) the products are simple yet stunning. We are particularly taken by the bat design, which adorns notebooks, prints, mugs and tea towels.

Having studied endangered species and worked alongside charities such as the Bat Conservation Trust, Lizzie donates 10% of every purchase to help British wildlife and each online purchase comes with additional information on the relevant species. Surely you need no further reason to go out and treat yourself to something special, and feel very good about helping a worthy cause at the same time.
