TYNE Rivers Trust, the charity that protects and improves the Tyne rivers have launched an environmentally sustainable gift collection.

The 'Love your Tyne collection' was designed by the Trust’s My Tyne project officer, Simone Price who is also, a talented lino print artist.

From a water bottle printed with mayfly to cards and mugs featuring trout, heron, dippers and water voles, the collection showcases the wonderful river wildlife which lives in the Tyne catchment. 

The Trust has announced all the money raised from sales will go towards improving habitat and protecting the wildlife of the Tyne Rivers.

Simone Price said: “We wanted to create a gift collection that looked good as well as being good for the environment.

"The mugs are made from Cornish clay in Staffordshire, while the cards are printed on recycled paper.

"The most rewarding part is knowing that the money raised from the online shop will go towards protecting and improving habitat for the wildlife that inspired it."
