Make a Statement
As the most biodiverse ecosystems in our ocean, coral reefs are crucial to the health of our planet. Unfortunately, the world’s coral reefs face widespread devastation due to mass bleaching as the result of rising ocean temperatures and acidification caused by pollution.
Bleaching occurs when corals take on too much stress caused by changes in ocean temperature or acidity. Prolonged periods of bleaching cause irreversible damage to coral reefs and their millions of marine life inhabitants. The Great Barrier Reef is now terminally ill due to unprecedented levels of coral bleaching, and an increasing number of reefs now face the same fate as the health of our ocean continues to deteriorate due to irresponsible human activity.
Raising awareness about the harmful effects that plastic pollution and fossil fuel emissions have on our ocean is key to saving more coral reefs from mass-bleaching. We urge you to make an ocean-minded statement every time you wear these leggings in honor of the world’s coral reefs.
