Every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you're connected to the sea." - Sylvia Earle
"We need to respect the oceans and take care of them as if our lives depend on it... because they do."
Earle is a pioneering marine biologist and conservationist. Her campaign Mission Blue aims to create a global network of marine protected areas. These areas currently encompass 2.07% of the world's oceans.
More than 8 million tons of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year.
The design for this mug is based on the iconic woodblock print "Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Japanese ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai. The water is strewn with plastic debris.
This mug is based on an original re-usable mug. Stokes Croft China highly recommends using this mug for your take-away drinks, instead of non-recyclable cups.
Stokes Croft China's profits fund homeless help initiatives and community art delivered by the Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft.
