Pledge To Avoid Turtleshell

When traveling in Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia, or Africa, I pledge to shop carefully at souvenir shops and look for and avoid any products made of turtleshell, including bracelets, earrings, rings, guitar picks, combs, and fans.

When I find turtleshell for sale, I will let the vendors know that I only purchase from stores that are turtle-friendly.

Instead, I will look for and purchase locally-made and eco-friendly products.

And I will encourage my friends and family to avoid turtleshell products and share this campaign with them and report turtleshell products when I find them online or while traveling.

We will send occasional updates on the campaign and other ways to help save sea turtles. You can unsubscribe anytime.
