African elephants today face multiple threats, from ivory and bushmeat poaching, loss of habitat, increased conflict with communities and even the impacts of climate change. Due to expanding human populations, the ancient migratory routes elephants have walked for generations are being lost to settlements and infrastructure. With fewer trees, longer droughts and less space to roam, elephants are frequently coming into closer contact with communities, often with deadly consequences. With the purchase of an Elephant Bracelet, you plant 3 trees and help to support elephant conservation in Kenya.

PLANT & PREVENT
Keeping trees alive is as important as planting new ones. This is why we finance awareness videos on social media, to show people what we can do to minimise the impact of deforestation in our everyday lives. Along with financing tree planting projects, we also finance the protection of our newly planted trees.
Elephants share the same range of emotions that we experience as humans, including grief when a loved one dies.
SAVING ELEPHANT ORPHANS GIVES HOPE FOR KENYA’S WILDLIFE
Elephants are killed for their tusk ivory
“In Kenya, we are tackling challenges ranging from poaching to habitat destruction through our pioneering field projects, so that humans and wildlife can find balance and live in harmony for generations to come.”

Elephants are a keystone species, shaping entire eco-systems and supporting the survival of other wild animals. Despite conservation efforts, however, elephants are still in trouble. It is estimated that we will lose over half of all remaining elephants in the next 10 years.
Poaching is still one of the major threats to elephants. As recently as 2012, an estimated 35,000 elephants were being killed each year, often leaving helpless baby elephants behind. Today, the illegal ivory trade continues and one elephant is killed every 26 minutes for its tusks.
Increasingly, elephant populations now face the even greater threats of habitat loss, human-elephant conflict and drought.
By purchasing an Elephant Bracelet, you plant 3 trees in Kenya and join our efforts to support elephant conservation.
HAND-ASSEMBLED IN SLOVENIA, CREATING JOBS FOR THE LOCALS ALL OVER THE WORLD
Purchasing a Treecelet bracelet does more than just plant trees. Our bracelets are hand-made in Slovenia by mothers that take care of their children at home. This way, they can work from home and raise our most precious gold – children. Are children not one of the main reasons to preserve nature?
The bracelets also provide sustainable and living-wage jobs to local people where the trees are planted. By financing tree planting projects, nature preservation becomes their mission.
