I know this is odd, but does anyone like seahorses in design? I love them in nature...so mythical and elegant. They're one of the creatures hardest hit by acidification. I had an idea years ago...what if we donated to a cause for every image we use from nature? For the seahorse...we donate to Oceana. For zebra printed rugs...we donate to WWF and Rainforest Alliance. Why Rainforest Alliance? Well the rugs are printed on cowhides, which are raised mostly in Brazil. They need land, so guess what gets cut down to raise them....yup rain forests. The only image I really like below is the pink one...how about you?
