Spread holiday cheer while Defending our Oceans

Feature story - December 3, 2013
This Yuletide season, you can help protect our precious seas, and at the same time make your loved ones feel special. When you purchase a red or green Lagu beach-friendly blanket*, PHP 50 from the sale will be donated to Greenpeace on your behalf, to fund our work in Defending our Oceans.

Lagu is just one of the many emerging product developers that hold functionality and impact on the environment in the same high regard. Their tremendous concern over beach erosion and beach-goers’ unintentional contribution to it brought them to create the world’s first beach-friendly beach blanket, made of sand-repellent material.

However straightforward their cause sounds, it’s all but insignificant. Lagu estimates that every time we step foot on a beach, we leave with nearly 3 handfuls of its precious sand. This is a lot, when multiplied with the number of beach visitors annually.

This infographic on their website illustrates that apart from climate change and overdevelopment, we too play a major role in the diminishing of Boracay’s sand:


We’d like to thank Kendrick Co, owner of Lagu, for going the extra mile by giving their customers an opportunity to support Greenpeace’s broader advocacy to protect the global ocean from overfishing, climate change, and pollution. Like him, you too can be an Ocean Defender or raise much-needed funds for Greenpeace campaigns, or both!
