TRIKONA x re:earth
Blue carbon ecosystems sequester away large amounts of carbon – they can sequester up to 10-20 times more carbon per acre than land forests! Kelp forests along coast lines "capture and hold" carbon, acting as carbon sinks. These coastal systems are much smaller in size than the planet's forests, but sequester carbon at a much faster rate - meaning that protecting and restoring coastal habitats is a good way to reduce climate damage.
TRIKONA TATTOOS, a London based tattoo studio (check them out here), and re:earth have partnered to bring you a tattoo that gives back to these precious ocean ecosystems.
What is The Blue Carbon Tattoo?
A tattoo to help give back to Mother Earth in the form of replenishing and rewilding kelp forests. This tattoo will directly help to replant 50 to 100 square feet (depending on tattoo selected) of underwater kelp forest in Palos Verdes, Southern California. The tattoo designs range from £60 - £100, and 100% of the funds go to planting kelp forests. Take a look at the designs below, to book contact TRIKONA (contact here), to finalise the booking donate 50% via the donation section below.
Why Save The Oceans?
Blue carbon ecosystems not only prevent climate change, they also protect coastal communities from its harmful impacts, such as rising seas and flooding, and provide important habitats for marine life. However these important habitats are being lost at a rate 5-10 times higher than the rainforests. Over the last 100 years, more than 90% of California's kelp forests have disappeared.
Kelp is the fastest growing organism and can grow up to 2ft per day! Every square foot of giant kelp you help to restore via The blue Carbon Tattoo provides employment for local people and divers, creates critical habitat for 100s of species and sequesters carbon. It’s a superstar.
100% of the funds go to planting kelp forests, facilitated by SeaTrees.
