1998 Sea Lily Miami Corals Planted By Sea Lily

April 22nd is Earth Day and this year’s focus is to End Plastic Pollution. Plastic Pollution is a huge problem worldwide, with 28-billion pounds of plastic ending up in our ocean each year. Plastic doesn’t break down naturally, so the  plastic products that we use for only a short period of time will pollute our oceans for hundreds of years.

At Sea Lily our passion is not only for fashion, but also for ocean conservation. Our focus is to help our oceans by replanting corals – a necessary component to healthy ocean ecosystems, but also to keep our oceans clean and free from pollution.

In honor of Earth Day we have teamed up with local ocean conservation organizations focusing on plastic clean ups and plastic pollution education.

Here are a few things that you can do to cut back on plastic pollution:

  • Say no to straws
  • Use a refillable water bottle and coffee tumbler
  • Bring your own reusable bags when grocery shopping
  • Give up gum
  • Pick up litter when you see it

Want to learn more about the impact plastic has on our oceans?
Stream the Netflix documentary A Plastic Ocean, a mind boggling film that will make you think twice about using plastic.

Looking to make an even bigger difference? 
Head to Debris Free Oceans  or the Plastic Pollution Coalition  to find local beach clean ups.

“5.25 trillion pieces of plastic reside in our oceans compared to the 400 billion stars in the Milky Way. That means we have 13 times more pieces of plastic in our oceans than stars in our galaxy. It’s time we embrace the principle of Zero-Waste, and the place to begin with is you.” – DFO
