The Smokey and Friends t-shirt is made of certified organic cotton with a sturdy, heavy-weight structure that holds its shape over time - guaranteed to be the smoothest tee in your cramped travel bag. This fall, we pay hommage to forest-dwellers of all kins, helmed by the mighty Smokey Bear. In this post-card-inspired print, Smokey and his friends deliver a bold message in fairytale lettering: Keep your matches away from our home - 10% of sales revenue of our Smokey Bear products goes to the US forest service.
The idea for a national forest fire prevention symbol was conceived during World War II, with the looming threat of wildfires in America’s Forests due to incendiary munition shells. While searching for a unique symbol to fill the role, the CFFP program was able to “borrow” the use of Bambi, the Disney Studios’ character, for a term of one year. Subsequently, they created their own symbol that would soon become America’s No.1 Fire Preventer - Smokey Bear was born on August 9, 1944.
