Got an animal loving friend with a birthday coming up? Instead of flying to Africa, shooting a rhinoceros and then mounting its decapitated head on a plaque, you might want to consider one of of these cardboard busts as a gift instead. I wish I had. Not only are they kind to animals, but they’re also made with 100% recyclable cardboard so when the novelty wears off, they can just be tossed in a recycling bin. Besides rhinos, there’s also a moose and deer version, and all of the cardboard puzzle pieces are laser cut so that they stay together with a precise fit when assembled. (No glue required.)
The animals all come flat packed and are available in a medium-sized version for $24.99 or a large-sized version for $47.99 from Perpetual Kid.
