We donate proceeds from the sale of these shirts to help save our planetShop Our Prints + Purpose
We have seen the endemic destruction of forests from Nicaragua to Cambodia, Brazil to the Congo. Food production and palm oil are major contributors. Our collective irresponsibility and indifference have led us down a dark hole of oceanic pollution and destruction.
We aim to do what we can to reverse these outrageous and life-threatening trends. Baja Llama will continue creating the most unique themed, handmade prints that represent the plights our earth is facing. Subsequently, we're donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales of these shirts to their corresponding charities.
OCEAN CLEAN UP
OVER 5 TRILLION PIECES OF PLASTIC CURRENTLY LITTER THE OCEAN
Trash accumulates in 5 ocean garbage patches. The largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, located between Hawaii and California. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health, and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.
The Ocean Cleanup develops advanced technologies to rid the world's oceans of plastic. A full-scale deployment of our systems is estimated to clean up 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years.
COOL EARTH IS THE NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT WORKS ALONGSIDE RAINFOREST COMMUNITIES TO HALT DEFORESTATION AND ITS IMPACT ON CLIMATE CHANGE.
Half of the world’s rainforest has been destroyed in the last 40 years. Contrary to the headlines, the rainforest continues to be lost at a faster rate than ever before. But it’s not too late. Cool Earth believes the rainforest can be saved - we just need a new approach. That’s why they don’t create reserves or put up fences. They don’t buy land. Instead, they put local people back in control of their forest. An approach that research is continually proving to be the most effective way to keep rainforest standing. By developing local livelihoods, their mission is to end the cycle of deforestation entrenching villages into further poverty. Creating strong, self-determining communities – not dependency.
