For each “Save Japan Dolphins” bracelet purchased, EcoJoia donates twenty five percent of the sell price directly to Save Japan Dolphins.
EcoJoia: Save Japan Dolphins Bracelet
Save Japan Dolphins was co-founded in 2004 by activist Ric O’Barry and strives to end the mass dolphin slaughter in Taiji, Japan. This campaign became widely known after 2009 documentary “The Cove” was awarded an Oscar and was featured as the 2010 Earth Day special on Oprah. “The Cove” has been given close to 50 awards since its premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.
“Thanks for your dedication and hard work,” said David Phillips, Executive Director of Earth Island Institute (the parent organization of the Save Japan Dolphins campaign), “It’s making a big difference for our efforts.”
EcoJoia has a Facebook page with an increasing and dedicated fan base offering up comments such as: “Why can’t every company give for every purchase?” EcoJoia’s bracelets are just the start. As EcoJoia grows it will gain the capacity to help raise funds for more environmental and humanitarian nonprofit organizations-
