Hundreds of £ donated to conservation
What We Do
Giving to Conserve was founded with the aim of assisting plant and animal conservation efforts around the globe. Sadly, the world's rich biodiversity is in trouble, and our wildlife are facing an unprecedented amount of threats. We needed to act.
As a sustainable brand, we wanted to give anyone the opportunity to buy high-quality jewellery and clothing without any worry of harming the environment. Not only do we plant trees and offset our carbon emissions, but 10% of all our profits are donated directly to organisations around the world, who work tirelessly to protect endangered species. This gives every purchase a new meaning, and YOU can make a real difference. Over the last two years we have worked with nine organisations and funded several release, rehabilitation and protection programmes for species such as the orangutan, sloth, koala and cheetah. Find out where we are currently donating funds and your impact below.

The Sloth Conservation Foundation
The Sloth Conservation Foundation (SloCo) is a registered non-profit organisation dedicated to saving sloths in the wild, through research and conservation initiatives. To achieve this, SloCo develops long-term community-based conservation solutions that target both human and sloth populations, with the goal of developing sustainable and beneficial ways for sloths to coexist with the people sharing their habitat. SloCo was founded in 2017 and is based in the South Caribbean of Costa Rica.
YOU can make a difference
We have partnered up with The Sloth Conservation Foundation in Costa Rica, and are donating 10% of all profits to assist with their efforts in saving the sloth. Sloths face many threats across their range, which without any action may push their populations to decline. We are thrilled to be supporting such an incredible organisation, who work tirelessly to save this threatened species. You can help to save wild sloths today, through just a single purchase of any of our nature-themed jewellery and clothing.
Deforestation is common across much of the sloths range. As this persists, it gradually isolates forest; known as habitat fragmentation. This is a major issue for sloths. Not only does it reduce sloth habitat, but they are forced to find new forests. To do this, a sloth must either cross dangerous power lines, or attempt to cross roads.
If habitats become too fragmented, this prevents sloths from using the trees to travel around. This can force sloths to use power lines to reach new habitat. Sadly, in Costa Rica the majority of power lines are not insulated, causing sloths and other animals to get electrocuted if they touch them. In many cases, this leads to death.
Power Line Electrocution
Sloths may come to the forest floor to cross into new forests, in order to find food and mates. Due to their slow nature, crossing roads is extremely dangerous for them. Road collisions and the chances of death is highly likely. This issue is becoming more common around towns and cities, where urbanisation is taking place.
Dogs also pose a serious risk to sloths in the rare occurrence that they come to the ground. Around human settlements, pet dogs and stray dogs are a common sight. Therefore, there is very little control over attacks that may take place. To prevent this, stray dog sterilisation can be carried out to avoid further breeding and reduce populations.
