If you want to help save elephants from extinction, the easiest thing to do is to never, ever buy ivory products. Even if the ivory item is marketed as “antique,” the reality is the majority of ivory is less than three years old. You should also only purchase coffee with bags stamped with the Forest Stewardship Council mark of approval. This ensures that not only is the coffee grown with fair trade practices in mind, but also it is done without destroying natural wildlife habitats critical for elephant survival.
