At Nautical Sun Beads, our mission is to do our best to reverse the damage mankind has inflicted on our seas and the beloved creatures who call it home. Our oceans take up over 70% of planet earth's surface so we believe it is important to take initiatives towards protecting our massive oceans.
🏄🏼 When you purchase from Nautical Sun Beads, you are actively taking a step in our initiative to restore our ocean's coral reefs, reverse the effects of ocean acidification and protect all seven species of sea turtles.
🏄🏼 What is Ocean Acidification? Ocean acidification is the issue of decreasing pH levels caused by increasing levels of carbon dioxide resulting in seawater to become more acidic. Just like the increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the air have been causing global warming, the same has been happening to our oceans. Our oceans take up over 70% of our earth and ocean acidification serves as a major threat to the biodiversity of our global ecosystem. Carbon dioxide deteriorates the shells and skeletons of marine organisms. It is extremely corrosive to coral reefs, which are feeding grounds for many marine organisms.
🏄🏼 Why is it important for humans to take action? Ocean acidification serves as a global threat to the the biodiversity of many ecosystems and ecosystem services that are vital to humans. Increased ocean acidity destroys marine life, food sources, and economies that rely on tourism, shellfish, and fisheries. It is becoming more severe near the Pacific coast, but has affected oceans around the world. A solution to this problem calls for global action to reduce carbon emissions that come from fossil fuels and other greenhouse gases.
Vincent Van Gogh once said, "Great things are done by a series of small actions brought together."
