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 love the wide neck of the bottle and so far it's keeping my water cold, haven't tried a hot drink in it yet though, the design is so simple and clean looking and it doesn't scratch easily. The cork on the lid is such a nice touch, definetly recommend for a bottle that doesn't look like the usual 'chilly bottle' shape
This bottle has really exceeded my expectations, has kept my water cold for way longer than I expected too! Plus the cause that it supports is really good so it’s a win win.
I honestly love the Arctic bottle! The outside feels nice and the minimalistic design is perfect. I used it for sports and what’s especially nice is the big opening so your nose doesn’t get crushed and you don’t have to drink from a weird angle. Also keeps your drink cool! The cap is easy to take off and it doesn’t leak. Might buy another one in the future :)
Great quality, quick delivery. My water stays cold for so long. No weird smells or anything. The bottle itself feels such high quality. Was very very pleasantly surprised.
The Arctic Bracelet
Veramente fantastica, come il progetto che vi è dietro!
The Arctic Bracelet
I received my bracelet + reusable bottle faster than I expected, like 4 days :)
The Arctic Bracelet
I purchased a Water Bracelet in XS/S size and I simply love it, I wear it all the time! I was a bit annoyed by hair pinching at the beginning - but that's just the way it is with bead bracelets. I got used to it though and I hardly notice it now.
The bracelet itself is super pretty, and the customer support is beyond helpful ^^
I bought my bracelet in December 2019 and since then it has been my favourite. The meaning, the quality and color is amazing. Unfortunately it broke not too long ago from the elastic that had gotten weak after my everyday use of the bracelet. I still highly recommend this bracelet and I know I'll definitely be buying one again soon.
I was so excited when I saw money went to good causes. I just had to buy because it’s such a beautiful bracelet. My only downfall when it’s arrived is that one of the beads isn’t blue and doesn’t fit in with the rest so doesn’t really look right but other than that it’s an amazing product
pas de suivis concret mais il arrive a bon port
I love this bracelet, for the nature and Earth. Shipping in time, perfect
The World Bracelet
First of all I wanted to ask sorry to all the people that work on this project, I faced some problems with the shipping and that's the reason why I wrote my previous 1 star review.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience, I finally got this bracelet and I love it! The natural gemstone are just amazing, they have such beautiful colors and shades.
It' a very good product, you deserve more than 5 stars :)
Servicio y atención perfecta, ni un error en la comunicación y las pulseras son super bonitas y se adaptan a la muñeca sin problema. Sin duda volveré a por mas productos, y todo por una buena causa también.
The customer support was helpful and quick to respond.
The Puffin coffee cup is really well presented in an attractive and informative box. The cup looks great and I love taking my time knowing that my drink will stay warm.
I got the Puffin coffee cup as a present and it arrived in time and in a nice package. Excellent customer service, nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend it for a gift to yourself or loved ones and it's amazing to have the chance to support the initiative. Well done
