This Blue Friday we will donate 5% of all orders

Go Blue this Black Friday with Chococo.

5% of all orders made today will be donated to Project Seagrass, an environmental charity devoted to the conservation of seagrass ecosystems through education, influence, research, and action.

 

What is seagrass?

Seagrasses are flowering plants that live in shallow sheltered areas along our coast. These sensitive plants are different from seaweed and form bright green leaves. These leaves form large, dense meadows under the sea. Like the coral reefs and rainforests of the tropics, these underwater gardens are full of life, hosting many animals of different shapes, colours and sizes.

However, like rainforests and coral reefs, these incredible underwater gardens are threatened. Globally, estimates suggest we lose an area of seagrass around the same size as two football pitches every hour. Protecting what is left is vital.

Seagrasses occupy 0.1% of the seafloor, yet are responsible for 11% of the organic carbon buried in the ocean. Seagrass meadows, mangroves and coastal wetlands capture carbon at a rate greater than that of tropical forests.

So make a change today and go Blue this Black Friday, with 5% for the seagrass.
