At Arcticus our main focus is to support and protect the Arctic environment and its wildlife. We do so by donating to major NGOs such as the WWF and by raising awareness of the impact that climate change has on the Arctic.
WHY THE ARCTIC?
1. The Arctic will be the first environment to disappear from our planet due to climate change.
2. At this rate, the Polar Bear and the Pacific Walrus will be extinct in about 80 years due to the rapid decrease in sea ice. These animals depend on ice patches to reproduce and survive.
3. As the sea ice melts more and more every year, new commercial routes are opening through the Arctic, causing more destruction and pollution to the environment and its wildlife.
4. Animals such as the Arctic Fox and Narwhales are in danger due to overhunting and the constant rise in temperatures, reducing their ability to hide against hunters and predators.
5. Beluga Whales are at great risks of extinction due to the increased fossil fuel extraction in the Arctic regions. The documented number of beluga whales stands at only 321 (since 2012).
If nothing is done, in about 100 years, climate change due to human activity will be the single greatest cause for the disappearance of a whole environment and all its wildlife.
Learn how your purchase will support the Arctic, what organisations we donate to, and their work:
25% of the profits from your purchase will be directly donated to organisations such as the WWF. The donations are specifically destined to research & conservation efforts in the Arctic Circle.
We mainly donate to the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) which is an international NGO that focusses on environmental preservation.

We donate to the WWF via Work for Good UK, a service that facillitates regular donations of businesses to various charities. By donating through their service, the donations are guaranteed to be used for projects in the Arctic Circle.

Moreover, we sometimes make adequate donations when need be. An example is a donation to WIRES the New South Wales Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service that we made to support the recovery from the Australian bushfires in January.
The donations are used to financially support 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.
Our last donations have made us become one of the top 10% of business donors via Work for Good UK. This is all thanks to our community and we are very proud to see what we can achieve together.
The Story of
The idea behind Arcticus started from the realisation of how big of an impact climate change has on the Arctic environment. We began to explore the topics of sea ice loss and climate change and very quickly found the Arctic to be one of the environments most affected by the global rise in temperatures.
Therefore, we decided to TAKE ACTION and establish a brand that was going to directly donate money to support the Arctic and raise as much awareness as possible of the threats that this habitat is facing.
I got it yesterday. It took a while, but I can understand this now with covid and all that stuff.
The bracelet feels good and comfortable for now. The cord is so long, but this can be make kt accesible for more people.
The support team was very nice. Chris answered all my questions in a very nice and detailed way.
I'll definitely buy another when I'm able.
A nice bracelet with a good cause 👏🏻

The Arctic Bracelet
I got the water and ice bracelet, was happy to have found them. They are well made, look really good and feel good on the arm. One stone broke in half but only because I wear the bracelet all the time and hit it while climbing. Glad I can help the environment with my contribution, even if it is small.
Beautiful bracelet. Easy to adjust.
This bracelet is great quality and I would recommend.
