You want to protect sea turtles not only because they are beautiful but also because they are a valuable part of our ocean ecosystems. From keeping jellyfish and sponge populations in check to helping keep CO2-storing seagrass beds healthy, sea turtles do important work. Help to protect our gorgeous turtle friends by rocking this tiny nurdle turtle necklace that not only takes plastic out of the ocean (ensuring that it will never end up in a turtle tummy) but also supports Hawaii Wildlife Fund's driftnet removal work, preventing turtles from becoming entangled.
- Gems are nurdles* that were rescued from the ocean.
- All recycled eco sterling silver.
- Pendant measures 5/8” by 1/2” and is on an 18" chain with handmade clasp.
- $10 from the sale of each Nurdle Turtle necklace will be donated to local nonprofit Hawaii Wildlife Fund's Hawksbill Sea Turtle Recovery Project.
Nurdles are the pre-production plastic pellets that most plastic consumer goods are made from. They are often found in great numbers on beaches around the world, and are in the top 10% of ocean plastic polluters.
