Gifts that give back to the world

There’s no time like the present to start adopting some eco-conscious behaviour. Even better, is when you share that with someone else. So, give the gift that gives back to the planet or people in need, and you will not only feel good but will be doing good.

Here are some of our favourite gifts that give back.

Coral for the reef

Born on Mo’orea, the sister island of Tahiti in French Polynesia, in 2017, a small group of island kids who were witnessing the rapid degradation of the coral reef around them and decided to take action. Coral Gardeners came to life. Today, the small group of island kids grew to an international collective of scientists, engineers, creators, and advocates determined to save the reef by revolutionizing ocean conservation and generating collaborative action around the world. Buy a piece of coral to plant and you have a direct impact on saving coral reefs.

Photos that feed the hungry

A group of friends and nature guides in South Africa launched Photos For Food as an initiative to provide food security across local South African communities. They have collaborated to bring you an amazing collection of wildlife photographs that are immediately available to download and ready to be used as high quality digital screensavers and for canvas or paper prints. They commit to donating 100% of all sales directly to Nourish, a South African non-profit organisation that is focussed on connecting communities and wildlife conservation through providing economic empowerment, education and food security. By purchasing one digital wildlife image, you will be feeding a family of four for an entire week.

Fashion for Elephants

Elephants are the inspiration for American designer Nicole Miller’s latest collection. It is partly inspired by an early 2020 visit to Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort in Northern Thailand’s ancient jungle where rescued elephants roam in their natural habitat. A percentage of online sales of Nicole Miller’s Pre-Fall 2021 collection in August will be donated towards the upkeep of these elephants along with projects to protect wild elephants and to improve the welfare of other elephants throughout Thailand. The almost total disappearance of tourism throughout the country due to COVID-19 continues to have a negative effect on Thailand’s 3,800 odd captive elephants and their carers who still need to find around US $20 per day just to feed their elephant.
