24Bottles, a sustainable design brand born in 2013 from the inspiration of Giovanni Randazzo and Matteo Melotti, announces support for Sea Shepherd Italia on the occasion of Oceans Day 2021, World Oceans Day, with the special 24Bottles X Sea Shepherd collection.
World Oceans Day is a very heartfelt anniversary for 24Bottles. In fact, the brand was born with the aim of reducing the impact of disposable plastic bottles on the planet and on our lives.
Plastic accounts for 95% of marine litter.
Every year, millions of tons of plastic are dumped into the sea, causing a danger to the marine ecosystem, damage to biodiversity and a threat to the survival of several species. So, 24Bottles has chosen to support Sea Shepherd Italia, which has always been committed to safeguarding this ecosystem and the life forms that inhabit it.
Through the Jairo Med project, Sea Shepherd is active in the conservation and protection of turtles in the Mediterranean, with particular attention to the endangered Caretta Caretta species. These animals are strongly affected by the anthropogenic impact on their ecosystem, many specimens ingest plastic, get trapped in fishing nets and egg laying is compromised by the presence of humans on the beaches.
The Jairo Med project sees Sea Shepherd volunteers patrolling the Italian coast during the summer months to locate and preserve turtle nests, protecting the eggs until they hatch. Patrolling continues in the cold months to look for beached or troubled turtles, including due to illegal nets and litter.
The 24Bottles X Sea Shepherd Collection
For the occasion, 24Bottles X Sea Shepherd Collection was launched which includes two variants of Urban Bottle 500ml, 24Bottles extra light stainless steel bottle.
Jolly Roger Urban Bottle and Whale Urban Bottle will be available on the website http://www.seashepherdstore.it starting from 8 June and all proceeds from the sale will be used to support the Jairo Med project.
