Back lit by the sun, sea ice appears to glow.

A Few of Our Favorite Things

With the holiday season fast approaching, we wanted to make it easy for you to find the perfect gift, while supporting your favorite conservation organization, Polar Bears International. With items to fit any budget, here is a list of some of our favorite things to keep you warm, stylish, and on time for all of your holiday engagements.

Canada Goose Camp/Lodge Hoodies. Stylish, soft and warm, this versatile jacket will keep you warm in every climate. A favorite of our staff, you can’t go wrong with this PBI-branded coat. And with $50 from the sale of any coat from the Polar Bears International collection going to support polar bear conservation, you'll give back to polar bears and their sea ice home.

Shared Planet. You can help polar bears this holiday season and look good doing it by supporting the polar bear line of Shared Planet cosmetics. Whatever the occasion, Shared Planet has you covered—whether you’re going to the office, a holiday party, or a night on the town. Vegan and ethically sourced, these products are just what you need to look and feel your best. Shared Planet is a Platinum Sponsor of Polar Bears International.

David Yurman North Star Collection. Charity and elegance all in one, the North Star collection will surely get you added to the “nice” list. And knowing that you’re also supporting a future for polar bears makes the feeling twice as nice. David Yurman will donate 20% of all proceeds from the North Star necklace and bracelet sales. For locations, visit the store locator page on their website.

BERING Time. This year, BERING would like you to think green to keep the Arctic white. You can join them by giving the gift of time with a stunning watch from their Time to Care line. $15 from every purchase goes to support Polar Bears International’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions and protect sea ice habitat.

4Ocean. Like many marine species, polar bears need environments that are free of pollution and plastic. You can help support this mission by purchasing one of 4Ocean’s polar bear legacy bracelets and give back to initiatives to protect sea ice and polar bears. With the purchase of a bracelet, 4Ocean commits to removing one pound of trash from the ocean.

And for those seeking an adventure, we have some great ideas to choose from including a trip to Churchill, the famous polar bear gathering place, or photo expeditions around the world. Each of these experiences will feed your soul while providing you opportunities to fully immerse yourself in nature: 

  • To see polar bears, we suggest a trip to Churchill, Manitoba with Polar Bears International and Frontiers North Adventures. There, you can learn from experts about this unique population of polar bears and see them up-close as they gather along the shores of Hudson Bay. As a bonus, you will get to visit our new, state-of-the-art interpretive center and learn more about what makes Churchill, Manitoba such an extraordinary place to visit! Our Conservation Journey runs from October 28th through November 3rd right in the middle of the polar bear migration. For more information on dates and availability, contact us at fundraising@pbears.org.
  • If photography is your passion, you can’t go wrong booking one of the many excursions offered by our friends at Daniel J. Cox/Natural Exposures. National Geographic photographer Daniel Cox and his wife, Tanya, lead unique trips around the world where they will teach you the techniques for capturing that perfect shot, whether it’s a polar bear in Hudson Bay or a snow leopard in India, you will learn all of the tips and tricks to taking you own award-winning photograph, like the one above. To learn more about the trips offered through Natural Exposure, visit their website.

From all of us at Polar Bears International, we wish you a very happy holiday season and a prosperous and healthy New Year!
