Gift packaging - A Gift that gives back
Every band comes in its own drawstring fabric pouch together with a planting certificate for your 10 trees. You address your certificate personally (by hand) which explains how your trees combat global warming to help people and animals alike. There is also a gift card on which you can write a personal message, the back of which tells you all about The Great Barrier Reef and why it is disappearing before our eyes.
Your necklace & care
The tempered glass beads will hold their colours in water although they should not be exposed to perfumes, chemicals, cosmetics and the like. The 24K gold plated beads should be treated like all gold jewellery (see care guide).
The Snow Leopard
The Snow Leopard is a solitary animal living at altitudes over 4,000 metres above sea level on steep cliffs and mountains where their habitats are under threat from Climate Change and global warming - they live in the snow and its disappearing!
Snow Leopards are built to live in freezing conditions - their fur grows up to 12 cms (5 inches) in length and their tails, which can be over a metre long, are designed like scarves to keep them warm as they nestle in the snow. Their feet are, of course, designed like snow shoes.
Measuring up to 5 feet in length and weighing up to 500 pounds, Snow Leopards are more closely related to Tigers than leopards. That said, they cannot roar and their meow is described at a high pitched piercing yow which can be heard for miles.
There are somewhere between 4,000 and 6,500 Snow Leopards left in the world and the combination of Climate Change and deforestation caused by agriculture are bringing these beautiful cats into ever greater contact with humans - and the rest is history! Snow Leopards are no match for man.
Welcome to Bands of Courage and please enjoy planting 10 trees with every band. Join us on Instagram and we will plant a tree for you too!
