Join us in celebrating World's Ocean Day with a fellow mission-based company and a non-profit environmental organization. We are all working to protect our Big Blue from plastic pollution, which is a growing threat to sea turtles and countless other marine animals. Together we are part of the plastic pollution solution!
Raising funds for sea turtles
ECOlunchbox has teamed up for the entire month of June with Love Bottle, Ocean Sole and SEE Turtles to raise funds for sea turtle conservation and protection. World Oceans Day is June 8. All three of the participating companies are part of the plastic pollution revolution, driving awareness about the perils of plastics and creating for sale products that don’t burden our oceans with more plastics.
For every order placed on each of our participating Web stores, we'll donate $1 to SEE Turtle's Billion Baby Turtles project.
“Sea turtles are extremely important both to people and to wild habitats. Sea turtles help control the amount of jellyfish in the ocean, keep seagrass healthy, and eat sponges that allow coral reefs to grow,” says Brad Nahill, co-founder of SEE Turtles.
SEE Turtles is an organization that supports community-based turtle conservation programs in Latin America through their Billion Baby Turtles program and conservation tours. Every $1 donated helps save at least one endangered hatchling at an important nesting beach in Latin America.
“I’ve seen how important bringing volunteer support to sea turtle protection projects is in terms of protecting long stretches of beach and providing financial support,” Nahill adds. “It is something we need to keep doing.”
The non-profit oceanic research organization Five Gyres estimates that more than 1,200 species are impacted by plastic through ingestion or entanglement - which sicken and kill animals. Sea turtles as well as birds, fish, dolphins, sharks and whales, among many other types of marine life, are ingesting plastic trash in our oceans as well as getting entangled in plastic debris, such as fishing nets.
We are so thrilled to share our love for the oceans and sea turtles with our communities. To join us in raising funds for the sea turtles, please choose to use one of our products and use the code SEETURTLES at checkout.
