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.
“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
