October is Joyful Clay Gives Back month!
Every day, Joyful Clay is dedicated to the preservation of the beauty that is our natural world. While Joyful Clay has organized give-back campaigns in the last couple of years, I'd like to make the commitment that every October, Joyful Clay will contribute toward an environmental cause. Thank you so much for taking the time to join me.
From the changing climate to commercial fishing, poaching to the never-ending onslaught of trash in our waters, sea turtles face an uphill battle for their survival as a species. Through research and rescue (knowledge and power!) we can help these important and beautiful animals survive. Please join me in a commitment to save the sea turtles!
For the month of October, 50% of the sale price of a Joyful Clay Sea Turtle Mug or Sea Turtle Wine Cup will be donated to the Atlantic Marine Conservation Society (AMCS), an organization dedicated to the research and rescue of sea turtles and other marine wildlife.
If you don't already, please follow Joyful Clay on Instagram (@thejoyfulclay) for fun facts on sea turtles and ways we can help them!
