*1)Where we find our seashells ?*
We care about our environment and the sustainability of the marine life.For example, in Philippines, local villagers collect the shells and use the meat inside to feed their families. The shells is considered a by-product and is sold once the meat is extracted. We like to support the livelihood of these villagers by buying our shells directly from them. We also buy some shells from the commercial food industry where the shell is also considered a by-product and would otherwise be wasted.
The biggest threat to seashells is the destruction of habitat, with pollution being the number one killer. We dump vast quantities of sewage, rubbish and industrial waste into our oceans. Tough controls are required if we are to sustain our natural marine resources for future generations.
In recent years a convention on international endangered species (CITES) was formed. Its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants (Including marine life) does not threaten their survival. Whilst the system is regrettably open to fraudulent practice it generally works well and is adhered to by bona fide shells suppliers.
*4)Seashells Art & Crafts*
We promote decorative and educational shells under the name of Seashells Arts and Craft.It is our pride to bring in recycling over 99% of their shells products from wasted and create sustainable fishing activities. It is our mandate to only work with responsible sources and through understanding and knowledge bring shells to today’s generation without endangering species for generations to come.
