Reducing Plastic Waste - Tip of the Month!
Each month we are aiming to bring you a new and fun tip to reduce plastic waste in your everyday life. This month Tammi, our clean ocean campaigner, has this awesome tip for you:
Hello Ocean Helpers!
March, the month of dolphin awareness as well as the start of spring. The weather begins to get warmer and beach cleans are happening around the world to clean up after the storms of February.
This month I am asking again, have you got a travel mug yet? Not only do they keep your hot drinks hot on cold winter mornings, but when those warm summer days come around they can keep your cold drinks refreshing and cool. They are made from stainless steel and many coffee shops are now accepting reusable mugs so there is no need to use disposable coffee cups which are often lined with plastic. You can read more about the Disposable Vs Reusable Coffee Cups here.
Get an Ocean Helper Reusable Mug today for just $19.95, you will not only be reducing plastic but also supporting marine conservation charities. Or you can grab an extra couple of mugs to pass on to your friends and family to help them reduce plastic with our offer of 3 mugs for the price of 2! Click here to get yours today!

Last month we are excited to announce that we were able to donate over $300 to Whale and Dolphin Conservation all thanks to your support! This month we are going to be donating 10% of our profits to the Dolphin Project.
If you didn't know already, March is Dolphin Awareness Month, so our focus this month is heavily on dolphins, learning about them and raising awareness for them. We have already celebrated World Wildlife Day this month where we focused on , and shared a petition fighting for dolphins in captivity to be released.

Later this month you can look forward to Recycling Day on the 18th, as well as International Day of the Seal on the 22nd and Manatee Appreciation Day on the 25th too. We also have another petition on how you can further protect dolphins in the wild. Keep an eye on your inbox for our emails with more information on those topics!

Do you know the difference between a dolphin & a porpoise?
There are around 32 dolphin species whereas there are only 6 species of porpoise. According to NOAA the biggest difference between the two is their face, dolphins have a longer and more pronounced nose, where as porpoises have a smaller mouth. They also have different fins, porpoise have triangular dorsal fins unlike the dolphin that has a curved or hooked fin. Typically dolphins will be leaner than porpoises too.
