A Totally Organic Penguin

Popular organic sock and apparel manufacturer, Maggies's Organics has released the second stuff animal in their Maggie's Menagerie collection – a Penguin.

Just like their Sock Monkey, Maggie's Penguin is made from excess fabric and irregulars and stuffed with reclaimed polyester mill scrap helping keep factory waste from landfills.

The Penguin’s embroidered eyes and securely sewn on hat make it safe for all ages.

Maggie's new penguin is made in the USA by workers at Opportunity Threads, a 100% worker-owned cooperative in Morganton, North Carolina.

Like the Sock Monkey, Maggie's new Penguin is a creative way to help keep jobs in the USA and prevent scraps from everyday mill operation from end up in landfills. The concept of creating products like these cute stuff animals from these types of materials and resources is innovative and speaks to the character of the company itself.

Maggie's latest stuffed animal the Penguin is available directly from the company for $20.
