Drink Coffee. Save Turtles.
We believe it is our God given responsibility to take care of our planet and it’s creatures. Seven different species of sea (or marine) turtles live in the world's ocean waters. Sea turtles spend the majority of their lives in the ocean. They occasionally come onto land to warm in the sun and most importantly lay eggs, traveling 1000's of miles to lay on the very beach they hatched on decades before.
Over the last two centuries, human activities have nearly decimated the world sea turtle population. Slaughtered for meat, skin, and shells, sea turtles suffer from poaching and over-exploitation. Their nests are raided for their eggs. One of the largest threats to the sea turtle is accidental capture—known as bycatch—in fishing gear. Pollution, climate change and human encroachment on their nesting grounds have caused nearly all species of sea turtle to be classified as endangered, with three of the seven existing species being critically endangered. The Kemp's ridley is the rarest of sea turtles.
Humans have caused the harm. We are the solution. Individually we can’t do everything but we can do something. By donating a portion of each sale to conservation organizations here in Florida, we can make a difference together! When you buy a bag of our small batch roasted coffee will donate $1 to reputable 501(c)3 organizations.
Note: Our $1 donation to Sea Turtle Conservation is split between several organizations and occurs automatically when you make a purchase. Loggerhead Coffee Roasters does not receive the donation funds.
