Ivoryella: A store that helps the elephants

Story by: Hannah Dunmire Danasiah Mithchell

Put together by a group of five people, Ivory Ella is a brand founded here in Connecticut.

The brand sells clothing, water bottles, phone cases, and more online and in their shop located in Mystic. The warehouse located in Westerly, RI is just one of the many that package and ship out products to customers worldwide.

The brand's large appeal comes from its affiliation with the Save the Elephants organization that works to sustain elephant populations and end ivory trade. The brand gives 10% of its proceeds to this and other charities, helping to work towards providing quality products and helping out a good cause.
