70% of this plant is covered in water.
As humans, we are intimately connected to our oceans. We depend on them every day, for clean water, clean air, and the health of these ecosystems is essential to our survival.
But the ocean is becoming a dumping ground.
Toxic for marine species and ecosystems are on the verge of collapse. Water quality is the most important environmental issue of our time. The number of people living on the coast has increased by 40% in the last 30 years and shows no signs of slowing down. With the population increase, the amount of toxic run off from coastal cities and towns has increased 10-fold, placing an unprecedented amount of strain on coastal resources.
Oysters are the answer.
Nature has provided the filter-feeding oyster to keep our coasts clean and teeming with life. A single oyster filters up to 50 gallons of coastal water per day, removing the toxins from run off and creating a habitat where hundreds of species like fish, crabs, and shrimp can thrive.
WITH YOUR HELP, WE HAVE PLANTED 280,214 SQ. FT OF OYSTER BEDS
That's enough oysters to filter over 82 million gallons of water per day! For every product sold, we will replant new oyster beds to help clean our coastal waters.
