THE OFFICIAL SMOKEY BEAR & WOODSY OWL TEE
Hank Player has teamed up with the United States Forest Service in cooperation with the Advertising Council, Inc. and the National Association of State Foresters, to bring Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl to a whole new audience with our hip graphic tees.
The United States Forest Service (USFS) is an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that administers the nation's 154 national forests and 20 national grasslands, which encompass 193 million acres. Their mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the nation’s forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations..
Created in 1944, Smokey Bear (often called Smokey the Bear or simply Smokey) is a mascot of the United States Forest Service created to educate the public about the dangers of forest fires. His motto "Remember... Only YOU Can Prevent Forest Fires", was created in 1947 by the Ad Council and more than 60 years later, his famous words of wisdom continue to be at the center of one of the most successful PSA campaigns in our nation's history. In April 2001, the message was updated to "Only You Can Prevent Wildfires".
Created in 1971, caring, friendly, and wise Woodsy Owl is a whimsical fellow and he's got his heart set on motivating kids to form healthy, lasting relationships with nature. As Woodsy flies across our land, he encourages youngsters to marvel at and explore the natural world, even in the city. His mottos "Give a Hoot, Don't Pollute" and "Lend a Hand, Care for the Land!" encourage everyone to make a positive difference in their world.
Proudly made in the USA, Hank Player's vintage inspired t-shirts are pre-washed for a super soft feel and printed with the distressed classic Smokey Bear and the retro Woodsy Owl logos.
