Save the Turtles

Save the turtles.

Plastic is one thing but habitat loss is another.

Sea Turtles are one of the most endangered sea animals are are directly impacted from plastic pollution. 

They not only mistaken plastic bags for jellyfish. They ingest plastic because they are curious or hungry and see that the plastic is part of the ocean now, causing many turtles to suffocate, die, or be in pain.

Our responsibility is to be mindful and help the Earth we need to create compostable materials that aren’t harmful to wildlife, go back to zero waste practices, reduce consumption, protect turtles, leave their nests alone, and don’t destroy their habitats. Only then will they be able to thrive again.

Here are some turtles you might know. 

Green Sea Turtles

Green Sea Turtles are the only herbivore of the 7 turtle species. They live in the ocean and hatch their young in nests on beaches. They usually go back to the same beach to hatch their young and swim for more than 1,000 miles to get there. They weight up to 300 pounds and live up to 80 years old. They live on seagrass which is their main diet. Green Sea Turtles start out as carnivores but move on to be omnivores then to a plant-based diet in their adulthood. 

It is illegal to kill them. They are unfortunately killed in bycatch, for their meat, or from fishing lines, but some are threatened from disease. They are losing their habitats fro beach front property across the world, and from excess pollution found in the ocean. 

 

Hawksbill Sea Turtles

Hawksbill Sea turtles are critically endangered. They live in every ocean in tropical waters and coral reefs. Their favorite food is a sea sponge but they are omnivores. They sometimes eat the deadly Man-O-War Jellyfish. Hawksbills are known for their curved back shell, which is called a carapace. In Hawaii, they are revered and called “Honu’ea” or just called “ea.” They are endangered because they are exploited by humans, eaten, and taken from their habitat and sold in shops around the world. Have you heard of tortoise shelled glasses? It is illegal to hunt them in many countries. Their population has severely declined and they have been on the critical endangered list since 1986 by the IUCN. Save and respect the Hawksbill and their young. 

What we are doing?

Our mission is to save marine animals from pollution and educate the masses about what is happening to the ocean with our ocean apparel. Our ocean conservation shirt spreads awareness that we need to protect our sea animals and adopt a eco conscious lifestyle. Less than 3% of our oceans are protected.

We have produced a book called Empty Ocean to further our causes which explains what is happening to the ocean and sea turtles. 

If you want to help sea animals, a great way is to purchase one of our ocean conservation shirts and create awareness. Our shirts are environmentally friendly and eco conscious, made in the USA, sourced locally, and printed with eco friendly water-based inks. Purchase one today on our products page.

We donate a portion of our shirts to ocean organizations that help sea turtles such as Sea Shepherd and 4Ocean.

How do we reduce our dependence on plastic?

1. Rethink what you buy. What is the end use of the product you buy? 2. Ask for no bag, unless it is paper. (Bring your own bag!) 3. Try used clothing. It can't hurt, you can find some really good things. www.thredup.com, www.buffaloexchange.com 4. Bring your own containers everywhere. Keep a bag full in your trunk. 5. Wait longer to get shipments and get as many items together when you order online.  6. Refuse the straw, the plastic utensils, and plastic at dining establishments. 7. Eat all of your food, don't bring home leftovers or dine out less. 8. Shop at a refill store. These are popping up all over now. This is an excellent opportunity to think different.
