Coffee FOR A CAUSE
Lost Pirate Coffee donates, for every bag of coffee sold, to SeaTrees
We aim to make history with our responsible corporate behaviors by donating to non-profits, helping them rebuild oceans throughout the world and communities around the sea. We believe in a sustainable future for our beautiful oceans, sea creatures, and marine life... including the endangered coral reefs and kelp forests. We buy only the best, highest grade coffee, and roast our beans in a way that is both delicious and eco-friendly
WHAT DOES SEATREES DO?
SeaTrees is working to plant mangrove trees in Indonesia and Kenya, restorative of the kelp forest in California, and rebuild coral reefs in Bali. These efforts will all help to restore the coastal ecosystems by removing carbon from the air. Mangrove forests - are 5-10x more effective than trees in the rainforest at removing carbon from the air.
We are all connected to the ocean in one way or another. These connections are not always visible, and as a result, oceans have been critically undervalued. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated this and has resulted in increased marine plastic pollution due to the rise in single-use medical equipment (mask, gloves, and single-use gowns.)
We need more people and companies to get involved with the protection and restoration of ocean health. Threats like climate change, pollution, and ocean acidification are accelerating faster than ever before in geologic history. Humanity must rise to meet that threat.
At Lost Pirates Coffee Co. we are ready to meet this challenge and assist with funding for this important cause.
10 IMPORTANT REASONS THAT A HEALTHY OCEAN IS VITAL TO US ALL.
1. NO POVERTY
More than 3 billion people depend on oceanic and coastal resources for a significant portion of their livelihood.
2. ZERO HUNGER
The Future of Food from the Sea report by Costello et al (2020) finds that approximately 17% of global food currently comes from the sea. But with better ocean and sea management, we can boost current yield by 36-74% percent.
3. GOOD HEALTH AND WELLBEING
A healthy ocean is necessary to sustain the marine plants which produce 50% of the oxygen we breathe.
4. GENDER EQUALITY (DEI)
Women account for approximately half of all workers in global fisheries, proving them with steady employment and access to a means of financial independence.
5. DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH
Oceanic resources and industries account for 5% of the global GDP, valued at about US$3 trillion per year.
6. INDUSTRY, INNOVATION, AND INFRASTRUCTURE
A number of ingredients used to treat life-threatening diseases such as cancer and Alzheimers are sourced from the ocean.
7. REDUCED INEQUALITIES
Regulating the fishing industry will prevent overfishing by large corporations, thereby facilitating more equitable access to natural marine resources
8. SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES
Over a third of the world's population lives in coastal areas, all of whom depend on healthy oceans to sustain ecosystems as well as the local economy.
9. CLIMATE ACTION
The Earth’s oceans are carbon sinks, absorbing 31% of our excess carbon and over 90% of the excess heat we produce.
10. PEACE, JUSTICE, AND INSTITUTIONS
Healthy oceans are key to avoiding fishery collapses and avoiding subsequent conflict between countries over scarce marine resources.
