Help us support the SEA LIFE Trust this Easter by buying our Ocean Eggs
For Easter 2020, we have partnered with the SeaLife Trust, a marine conservation charity based in nearby Poole here in Dorset, dedicated to helping to protect the world's oceans.
As Chococo started in Swanage by the seaside in Dorset & our co-founders Claire & Andy are keen sailors (Claire actually raced around the world in the BT Global Challenge Round the World yacht race back in 1996/7!), we are very connected to the sea. Doing more to help a marine conservation charity felt like the right thing to do as everyone becomes more aware of the impacts on ocean life caused by plastic pollution & global warming.
The SEA LIFE Trust is a registered charity (no. 1175859) working globally to protect the world’s oceans and the amazing marine life that lives within them. Their vision is of a world where our seas are healthy, protected and full of diverse life. It does a diverse array of work to help our oceans, including protecting sea turtles, owning and operating marine sanctuaries, combating overfishing, reducing ocean litter and protecting marine life.
So this year, we have created a range of Ocean Eggs, from our 175g boxed Ocean eggs available online & in our shops, up to our 2.5kg Ocean Giant (did you see what we did there?) egg, with us donating an amount to the SeaLife trust for each one sold.
Each egg is studded inside with chocolate turtles & starfish & is hand-decorated with naturally coloured waves (the blue colour is spirulina) with a light dusting of edible shimmer.
We will donate 50p from each boxed Ocean Egg sold, up to £10 for each Ocean Giant Egg sold. Please be aware that the Ocean Giants are only available to buy in our Chocolate Houses as they are too difficult to post. However, if you wish to buy & collect one, please let the chocolate house team know or give us a call to order one over the phone & we will ensure there is one ready for collection for you!
By the way, the removable plastic front you can see on our boxed eggs, is actually made of 80% recycled plastic content & is 100% recyclable & the giant eggs in our shops are wrapped in compostable cornstarch cellophane.
