Turning Black Friday Blue

Today’s discount craze often encourages people to buy products they don’t need, solemnly for the sake of not missing out on bargains.

This Black Friday we are increasing our prices by €10, which will go straight to Sea Shepherd. For every purchase made we will donate another €10 to Sea Shepherd.

Our oceans - an ecosystem to fight for

There’s a sea of sales out there. Resisting them can be hard. Along the way we’ll give you some friendly reminders on what’s at stake. Once more we have teamed up with Sea Shepherd to focus on how destructive consumerism impacts our blue planet.
