David Attenborough Pop-Up Shop


The 93-year old British broadcaster and natural historian David Attenborough is a hero to many, including us, who have grown up with his delightful nature documentary narration. Active since the 1950s, he has helped showcase the natural world to millions of people around the planet, raising awareness, and spurring a new generation of conservationists and scientists.

As an ode/love letter to his life’s work, Jen Pyrah has created a pop-up shop in England, featuring all David Attenborough products, most of them created by her and her company, Wren and Wilson.

The cute products include hand painted portraits of Attenborough, and a delightful cartoon likeness on mugs, t-shirts, socks, and enamel pins. True to his ethos, the shop features no plastic items, and tries to be as eco/nature friendly as possible. In addition, she’s donating 10% of its sales to the World Land Trust. We think it’s a great idea, and a lovely shout out to an extraordinary man. Via BBC:
