Skip the heart-shaped jewelry this year and get an elephant lover in your life a more meaningful necklace. Tiffany & Co. has a unique jewelry collection called Tiffany Save the Wild that supports wildlife conservation efforts.
This jewelry company gives 100 percent of its profits made from these designs to the Wildlife Conservation Network. They have a full range of animal designs, including elephant-shaped necklaces that are an ideal gift for someone who likes elephants.
If your elephant lover is not a necklace kind of person, give them an elephant bracelet instead. DivinityLA is a team of Los Angeles artisans who create handmade bracelets, including an elephant bracelet.
What makes these bracelets unique is that they use raw materials and donate a portion of each sale to organizations. DivinityLA donates 10 percent of their profits made from the elephant bracelet to the International Elephant Foundation.
You are probably wondering, what does tea have to do with elephants? Well, the production of tea impacts Asian elephants. Project Elephant reports that eight to ten Asian elephant deaths are results from falls in tea garden trenches.
To help prevent the death of Asian elephants, some tea companies are improving tea farming practices. One of those is the Elephant Origins. They produce high-quality tea from Certified Elephant Friendly farms. A bag of their tea is a sweet and perfect gift for some who likes elephants.
A membership to a zoo
If an elephant lover is lucky enough to live in a city with elephants in their zoo, buy them a zoo membership. Not only will they be able to visit their favorite animal all year round, but also support their conservation. Zoos help the wildlife through conservation efforts, educating the general public and providing research to save species. Here are some of the U.S. zoos that have African and Asian elephants.
