Happy New Year! In 2017, we're giving you new reasons to shop at our gift store. When you purchase an item from our gift store you are directly giving back to the Center. All of the proceeds from our gift store benefit our sea turtle patients, over 30 educational programs and our conservation initiatives. Additionally, our gift store offers a selection of conservation and eco-friendly products, including toys made out of recycled plastic, sweatshirts made from recycled water bottles and bento boxes. Our gift store staff, comprised of Bev, Barb, Kate and Kim, hand select the products to be featured and focus on choosing products made in America or by local artisans. To recognize our local vendors, each month we select a vendor to highlight. Choosing to buy a product from our store not only helps our brand awareness, but it also supports local community members. With every purchase you make at the Center, you are choosing to help spread our mission and vision for sea turtle and ocean conservation. In 2017, we challenge you to shop for a cause. We thank all of our loyal customers for their continued support!
