GIVING BACK IS SECOND NATURE
In 2015, we designed our first cause bag – a beautiful blue seabird inspired by the Albatross on Midway Island - and gave back 10% of the proceeds to support 5Gyres.
Our 2016-2017 cause bag featured a sea turtle, a beautiful (and well loved) animal at risk because of plastic pollution and many other issues like commercial fishing, habitat loss, illegal hunting and shell trade. It is estimated that more than 100 million marine animals are killed each year because of plastic waste in our oceans. Specifically, thousands of sea turtles who mistake floating plastic bags for food, like jellyfish, which is a main part of their diet. When they swallow this plastic debris, turtles can become sick and starve. In 2016-2017 we gave back 10% of the proceeds to the Sea Turtle Conservancy and to 5Gyres.
Today, our mission of giving continues with the Oceanic Preservation Society. We donate proceeds from every order to help protect our planet.
