Why does Three Sheep and a Mill safeguard Loggerheads?
We believe we are guests of Mother Earth and need to play an active role in sustaining her nourishment.
Sea turtles are a fundamental link in marine ecosystems. They help maintain the health of sea grass beds and coral reefs that benefit commercially valuable species such as shrimp, lobster and tuna. Sea turtles are the live representatives of a group of reptiles that have existed on Earth and traveled our seas for the last 100 million years. Turtles have major cultural significance value.
Hundreds of thousands of sea turtles are accidentally killed by fishing gear—caught on dangling hooks or entangled in nets—every year.
The way loggerhead turtles feed on their hard-shelled prey recycles important nutrients and keeps ocean floor sediments in balance. Loggerhead turtles carry colonies of small plants and animals on their shells which serve as important habitat themselves. As many as 100 species of animals and plants have been recorded living on one single loggerhead turtle.
Nothing is asked of you.
However, we want you to know the part you play in being a conduit of assistance to Earth’s Loggerhead population. Every time you specify or purchase $1,000 or more of Three Sheep fabric, we will send you our new ‘1% for Loggerhead’ Three Sheep insulated Tervis Tumbler water bottle.
We all know how bad those plastic bottles are for the environment – why not show off your pride with a new, reusable, insulated, life-time warrantied water bottle?
Thank you for caring!
