- Tidy up the jungle inside any home with ROYALE's new multipurpose towel
- it has tiger strength and heart -
DIEPPE, NB, Oct. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - The newest member of the ROYALE feline
family has come roaring into the Canadian market with the launch of
Tiger Towels, a soft, strong and thirsty multipurpose paper towel. Now
prowling the shelves of retailers across the country, the launch also
marks the start of a new partnership between ROYALE and PANTHERA, the world's leading wild cat conservation organization, which works in
partnership with Save the Tiger Fund to conserve the world's remaining 3,200 wild tigers.
"We are extremely proud to announce our new partnership with PANTHERA
through Save the Tiger Fund, which lets us directly contribute to the
preservation of tigers and their habitats worldwide," said Gary
MacIntosh, director of marketing, ROYALE Canada. "During our research
as we developed the Tiger Towel concept, we were shocked to learn that
tigers are now an endangered species. Given the majestic beauty of our
new brand ambassador, we felt a responsibility to ensure future
generations will grow up in a world with tigers. We hope this
partnership helps raise awareness and interest for tiger conservation
As a proud partner, ROYALE will donate $40,000 to the fund as well as
provide ongoing support to raise awareness and increase fundraising
efforts throughout 2014, including, online and social media support,
retail point of sale material and community events.
"Right now, there are fewer than 3,200 tigers remaining in the wild. One
of the world's most iconic species is near extinction because of
rampant poaching for the illegal wildlife market," said Andrea Heydlauff, vice president, PANTHERA. "Panthera and our partners are working
tirelessly in the field to stop tiger poaching, and protect their prey
and habitats across Asia, so these animals can live in the wild
forever. Tiger conservation is a global issue and what tigers need to
survive is for the world to care. This is why we are delighted to have
ROYALE on board to help raise awareness and support of our programs in
Canada and beyond to ensure a future for wild tigers."
