Shopping at Christmastime is all about finding perfect gifts to give—to family, friends and even our pampered pets. But what if the gifts you choose for the special people in your life also had a positive impact on important causes?

This year, we’re featuring Lush Charity Pot partners you can help by purchasing some of the gifts available on their websites. In doing so, you can say you purchased a gift that gives back!

Meet Rocky Mountain Wild

One such partner is Rocky Mountain Wild. For more than fifteen years their mission has been to protect, connect and restore wildlife and wild lands in the Southern Rocky Mountains.

Rocky Mountain Wild is committed to building a biologically healthy future for the region that includes a diversity of species and ecosystems, thriving populations of wildlife and a sustainable coexistence between people and nature. They’re assembling a community of educators, students, activists, philanthropists and citizen scientists to realize their vision.

A recent example of Rocky Mountain Wild’s valiant efforts is their fight against the destruction of Wolf Creek Pass, one of the most biologically important areas in the Southern Rockies. This area provides habitat and migration pathways for elk, deer, black bear and the Canada lynx, and is under threat due to a recent land exchange between the US Forest Service and a private land developer. Any development on this land puts wildlife at risk. It also jeopardizes water quality and the natural beauty of the Colorado wild spaces. Without public support, Rocky Mountain Wild wouldn’t be able to protect the species and ecosystems in this beautiful region.

Volunteers regularly offer their support to safeguard the residents of the Rockies. More than 500 rare and endangered species call the region home, and your support will help ensure that this doesn’t change.

Gifts that Give Back

Rocky Mountain Wild has a bunch of fun gifts you can purchase to support them. For anyone who likes the therapeutic benefits of art, grab a stress-relieving Rocky Mountain Wild coloring book. Stickers spread the word and show your support, or you could get one of their cool t-shirts, totes, onesies or mugs at their RedBubble Store. You can even support Rocky Mountain Wild by making a donation in your recipient's name!
