The holidays are the perfect time to give back to those you love. 

Why not also give back to nature at the same time? 

Conservation International’s 2020 gift guide offers a range of items that you can feel good about giving — meaningful ideas that support nature. Here are some of the top picks from our newest partners.

Prints for Nature

Conceived by National Geographic photographer Ami Vitale, the Prints for Nature collection features work from more than 85 of the world’s foremost nature photographers. From images of elephants congregating in Kenya to humpback whales diving in the South Pacific, these photographs capture some of nature’s most iconic wildlife and ecosystems — and 100 percent of net proceeds will support Conservation International’s efforts to protect them.

Made from 30 percent recycled content, the HP Tango Terra is a net-carbon-neutral printer that allows you to print photos or documents directly from your phone. Through a partnership with Conservation International, each HP Tango Terra printer sold helps support rainforest conservation in the Peruvian Amazon.

Pangaia x Costa Brazil Organic Cotton T-Shirt

Fashion brand Pangaia and skincare company Costa Brazil have teamed up to create a limited-edition, organic T-shirt to help you sport your love for the Amazon rainforest. Together, they will donate 100 percent of proceeds to Amazon Forever — a campaign by Conservation International and BrazilFoundation to support Indigenous communities in the Amazon.

Italian silk scarves by Isa Catto

Featuring designs of endangered bird species and rare flowers, Isa Catto Studio’s collection of Italian silk scarves is inspired by the nature it supports. For each scarf purchased, Isa Catto will donate funds to plant a mangrove tree on Chira Island, just off the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, where Conservation International is working with the local community to restore mangrove forests. 

Socks by Conscious Step

In partnership with Conservation International, the sock company Conscious Step puts purpose in every purchase. Proceeds from its new line of socks will go to Conservation International and other partners to help protect the vulnerable species — including sloths, sharks and koalas — featured in each sock’s design. 

LXMI 33 Face Oil

LXMI 33 face serum is made from 33 natural ingredients including tukha — a rare Brazil nut oil sourced directly from the Alalapadu community in the Amazon. Proceeds from this product will not only improve people’s livelihoods, they will also help protect the rainforests of Suriname.
