Fresh from announcing its own initiative to use 100% sustainable materials, Aurora World has revealed its first eco friendly concept.

All characters are 13 centimetres and retail at €8.95 ($9.89).

Gary Stoner, Travel Retail Manager, Aurora World: “We have received a lot of positive feedback since the announcement of our Green Initiative and we are very excited to be launching the first of many sustainable lines. As climate-change tension continues to rise, it is imperative that we do our bit to help the planet and our new sustainable products can be purchased and joyed 100% guilt-free!”
