The ocean produces at least 50% of the planet’s oxygen and is the home to most of Earth’s biodiversity. Our oceans cover more than 70% of the surface of our planet, and now, they are in need of our support. We need to work in synergy to create a new balance where the oceans no longer deplete their goodness but instead are revitalized and provide new life for healthy life cycles for generations to come.
In honour of World Ocean Day, Veganologie has partnered with Azraq, a volunteer-led organization in the United Arab Emirates, dedicated to restoring coral reefs, reducing debris, and achieving a healthier ocean.
To celebrate our partnership, Veganologie has contributed to planting three mangrove trees on UAE’s coastline. Veganologie is proud to share that from now, for every 10 sales we receive, we will plant a mangrove tree.
Mangroves help in stabilizing the coastline by reducing erosion caused by any storms or tides. They help protect water by removing pollutants from stormwater before they reach the coral reefs. Mangroves also assist in reducing the chances of coastal flooding, and therefore, provide a great habitat for fish, birds, deer and honey bees. Mangroves are beneficial for both fish and birds as many birds depend on mangroves for seasonal migrations.
Being a Dubai based start-up, we are proud to be partnering with a local organisation that can support us in achieving our goals of protecting the environment and re-vitalising it back to its original form. At Veganologie, we are proud to stay committed to our goal of providing you with sustainable and ethical fashion, and we are equally proud to be starting the conservation of mangroves locally. Starting local means we can measure the impact and share it with you as we go on this journey together.
There is no “small action” in taking care of our environment. Every step counts.
