There’s this company called Parks Project that takes the TOMS shoes business model and turns the charity aspect towards supporting over 30 different conservancies across the USA, providing vital funding for the ongoing care of National Parks. They have a full line of products from jewlery to homegoods but it was this unique Polaroid that caught my eye. If you’re into retro photography and supporting our national parks we got the thing for you:
- Fixed focus lens (4 ft – infinity)
- Built in flash (with override option)
- Exposure compensation slider
- Built in neck strap
- No battery required (the battery is inside each film pack)
- Compatible with Polaroid 600 Film available here
