Eco is Sexy gives 2% of all our website order sales (sales - not profits!) to three charities that are doing important things to help keep our oceans clean, educate people, and reduce single-use plastics. Here is some information about these charities:
This global non-profit organization addresses plastic pollution and how it affects us, our oceans, and marine life. Plastic Oceans wants to change the world’s attitude towards plastic and seeks to educate and engage everyone to rethink plastic through an awareness campaign using film and media. Plastic Oceans relies on donations to help continue their campaigns that raise awareness and social change by inspiring people to rethink plastic.
5 Gyres is a non-profit organization that uses science and education to drive solutions. It focuses on scientific research and how plastic is damaging our environment. In 2012, 5 Gyres was the first to discover that plastic microbeads are seriously polluting our water and used this information to help convince large companies to stop including the unnecessary ingredient. Their voice was strong and at the end of 2015 President Obama signed the Microbead-Free Waters Act into law. Their work is paramount in educating people about the facts and figures in the plastic pollution crisis.
Greenpeace was founded in 1971 by environmental activists. With offices in over 40 countries, they are an international environmental organization with a goal to “ensure the ability of the Earth to nurture life in all its diversity.” Their campaigns are mainly focused on global warming, deforestation and overfishing. Greenpeace is also fighting the war on plastic and is calling on governments to act. They are encouraging us to act together by creating closed-loop systems that will allow us to reduce and reuse materials rather than letting them becoming waste pollution.
