Smart souvenir shopping

Bringing a piece of your holiday home is a great way of keeping the memory alive – just make sure it’s wildlife-friendly!

It’s easy to be dazzled by all the trinkets on offer to help you commemorate your holiday experiences, but it’s important to be aware of where these items have come from, and avoid any that harm wildlife.

Many products contribute to the harm of animals and overexploitation of fragile ecosystems. By avoiding these items we can collectively stand in favour of eco-friendly choices, and reduce demand for environmentally damaging products.
