While FoxSea Skin is a small operation, we're passionate about donating a portion of each year's sales to organizations fighting for our oceans. Our waters are becoming increasingly contaminated, which affects our seafood and the fishing industry. Coastlines are seeing more and more pollution. Climate change is causing the temperature of the oceans to rise, resulting in damage to coral reefs and wetlands, as well as extreme weather, which negatively affects tourism. And this is just a small portion of the damage being done.
This year, FoxSea Skin is happy to donate funds to Oceana, an international organization focused on the health of the world's oceans. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., Oceana is the largest international conservation and advocacy organization focused on protecting and restoring the world's oceans. The organization is committed to fighting the affects of industrial fishing and pollution with clear policy changes in support of marine life.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Be aware of what you throw away and work tirelessly to reduce, reuse and recycle what you can. One way to make a seemingly small contribution is to stop using plastic straws, which are polluting our oceans. Opt for reusable metal straws or biodegradable paper straws instead. Another is to refuse to use plastic bags. There are so many lovely reusable shopping bags and totes these days so there's no excuse here. My personal favorite is by Baggu.
In addition to supporting businesses which give back to causes important to you, those same causes benefit the most from your direct donations and support. Get involved, make regular donations of time and money and spread the word for your favorite cause. One small ripple can makes waves...
