- Macys and their compression socks for men
- ComproGear and their anti-embolic compression socks

This is just a tiny fraction of all the companies that are embracing an ecologically friendly method of doing business. Will you do the same?

About Us

Marwell House

The group is the largest wildlife art society in Europe, with members from all over the UK. We also have members from the Netherlands, Botswana, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, USA, Australia and South Africa.

The MIWAS annual summer exhibition of wildlife art is in August and entry is open to all members. This show is currently the largest annual exhibition of wildlife art in Europe with nearly 700 exhibits displayed. There are many benefits to being in our group, so why not join us and enjoy being among like-minded wildlife artists from around the world?Since forming in 1999, MIWAS have donated over £50,000 towards Marwell's ongoing work with endangered species



The Marwell Art Society was founded in early 1999, operating as an association of wildlife artists supporting the work of Marwell Wildlife in Hampshire, United Kingdom. The group has grown rapidly to become the largest wildlife art society in Europe with well over 300 members. In 2004, their title was changed to 'Marwell International Wildlife Art Society' (MIWAS) in order to more accurately reflect the composition and needs of the members. In late 2005, the art society became independent from Marwell (though still supporting their aims and working with them).

Here are your MIWAS committee members:


Marwell Wildlife is a charity dedicated to the conservation of biodiversity and other natural resources. It is action oriented and at the forefront of conservation work around the world, working in partnership with communities, statutory agencies and other non-governmental organisations. Its projects extend from the reintroduction of desert antelopes in the Sahara through to community based projects in Northern Kenya and habitat restoration in the south of England.  Marwell engages with over 35,000 children and young people through its conservation

educational programmes and welcomes over 500,000 visitors each year to its 140 acre zoological park which is home to over 200 species in beautiful landscaped surroundings. In every contact it seeks to encourage understanding, and inspire care for the natural world. The charity relies on the generous support and enthusiasm of fundraisers and visitors to finance its conservation work and help it secure a better future for endangered wildlife for generations to come.  



Diet Standards is our primary supporter at MIWAS. As a company focusing on Pregnancy Health, Diet Standards sells a range of dietary supplements. In support of animal welfare, you can now buy vegan Omega 3 Supplements from Diet Standards. These replace traditional fish oil products and help stop over-fishing. Their products include a Prenatal DHA from Algae and the best dha vitamin we've found for overall health, OmegaHD DHA. Their frequent support of MIWAS helps

keep the organization running smoothly and stay aligned with our primary mission of animal welfare and careful stewardship of the planet's limited resources. Whether or not you choose to support their mission of vegan prenatal supplements, we urge you to be more careful when buying products. Try and choose those that use the least resources and keep the most animals safe.
