“If you care for the ocean, the ocean will care for you.” —Hawaiian Belief
Ric Dilz started The Respect the Reef project to help create awareness about our oceans’ coral reefs. Ocean reefs are vital to the survival of many plant and animal life and impacts humans in many ways. Coral reefs affect Over 500 million people, directly and indirectly. It is critical that we start reversing damage done by human activity, or our reefs may never recover.
The Respect the Reef project helps raise funds through product sales for reef research and education. We also encourage our visitors to donate directly to reef conservation organizations and to get involved in local preservation projects. We select recipient organizations that support sustainability and of course reef preservation. We are at the beginning stages of our project and our web site will give more information on who we are donating to and how to donate directly to organizations that share our mission.
We take our responsibility of being a good steward of the earth very seriously. Not only through environmental practices but through the many charities we support that help the less fortunate. Below is a letter from Bridget our recycling partner.
” [Respect the Reef] has been providing a complete recycling program for their staff for over 15 straight years. They understand how important it is to manage waste and keep as much out of the landfill as possible. It has been a joy to work with them and help them set a good example to not only their employees, but to the other businesses around them in Boulder. We live in a ‘green bubble’ these days—everyone is trying to say how green they are. Rein Designs/JIbber Jabbers isn’t new to green. They have had a green heart for a very long time. We hope if you are looking to support a company does the right things, you’ll pay attention to them!!”
