The Jolly Roger logo features our own creative version of the pirate flag. It was designed by the artist Geert Vons and shows what we stand for. The crossed shepherd's staff and Neptune's trident are the symbol of our watch over the living beings in the oceans and our determination to fight for them so that they can live freely in the sea. The skull represents the death that humanity brings to the oceans. Yin and Yang – whale and dolphin – on the other hand, symbolize our goal of bringing the sea back into balance, preserving the grace of dolphins and the wisdom of whales.
How does my purchase help with marine conservation?
Sea Shepherd is an international non-profit organization, and our work is only possible because of generous donations and through the sale of our official merchandise.
Our eStore gives us the opportunity to raise vital funds for our marine conservation campaigns across the Americas. Every purchase you make helps us maintain our fleet of ships, equip our crew, and continue the fight for the ocean. Thank you for helping us protect marine wildlife worldwide!
What are your products made from?
We are committed to sustainability, with most of our products having a GOTS or Fairtrade certifications. For our clothing, we source 100% organic cotton for natural-fiber, plastic-free apparel. This also helps keep plastic out of the ocean as every laundry load of synthetic clothing releases millions of plastic microfibers into the ocean.
For our other items, we source recycled materials and screen all of our suppliers for a responsible supply chain, sustainable product, sustainable operations, and community involvement.
Sea Shepherd has high standards in terms of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and eco-friendly sourcing.
Can you change your shipping costs?
Our goal is to reduce our global footprint, and so we encourage everyone to choose the Sea Shepherd merchandise store closest to you if possible. That’s why our shipping costs outside of the US are higher.
We carefully source our shipping providers to ensure their sustainability and we maintain regular checks to try and reduce costs where possible.
