"Protect our Oceans" with "Tangaroa Blue"...
"18,000 pieces of plastic are estimated to float in every square kilometre of ocean"
"633 species worldwide including 77 Australian species are impacted by marine debris"
"Over 75% of what is removed from our beaches is made of plastic"
We are proud to announce that as of 2018 we are supporting the Tangaroa Blue Foundation. This Australian-wide not-for-profit organisation not only cleans up after us, but is dedicated to the prevention of marine debris.
If all we do is clean up, that is all we will ever do!
So now, every time you shop with us get excited to know that $1 from every transaction will be going towards helping solve this environmental issue.
To successfully solve this problem, an on-ground network of volunteers, communities and organisations contribute data from rubbish collected during beach and river clean-up events to the AMDI (Australian Marine Debris Initiative) database, and then work on solutions to stop the over-flow of litter at the source.
In Maori and Polynesian mythology, Tangaroa is the god of the ocean. Tangaroa made laws to protect the ocean and its beautiful creatures "Tiaki mai I ahau, maku ano koe e tiaki"… If you look after me, then I will look after you..." When, after a week-long clean-up event, the whales and dolphins come close to our beach and slap their flippers, we sometimes wonder if it Tangaroa saying "thank you".
Help us help Tangaroa Blue save our oceans!
