Ice in the Arctic Sea decreases by 13.3% each decade, limiting the natural habitats of countless species. It is expected that the global sea levels will rise by 1 meter throughout the next 80 years. Considering that 10% of the country of Bangladesh, also having one of the densest populations, lies below 1m above sea level, this rise will have unignorable, dramatic consequences. The oldest glaciers in the world are starting to melt over time and some have even disappeared already. The lives of thousands of living species in the Arctic Circle is a stake and if we want to preserve this precious environment for future generations, we need to take action now.
The purpose of Arcticus is to create a community of like-minded individuals that are ecologically conscious of their mind-set and lifestyle, whilst donating to environmental
organisations and raising awareness about the threats that the blue planet is facing.
Donations to the Arctic:
When you buy an Arcticus product, 25% of the profits are directly saved and donated to organisations that work with research and the protection of the Arctic environment and its wildlife. The organisation we mainly donate to is the WWF, via the service of Work for Good UK.
The money donated is used in projects that are taking place in different Arctic countries and involve experts in fields like resource management and climate and wildlife. Current projects include the analysis of ice samples to understand the causes of climate change better and limit its extent. Another example is also the tracking of polar bears to understand their movement better and avoid human interference with their environment.
