Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument
We are proud to give 1% of all proceeds to the Papahānaumokuākea Marine Debris Project, created to protect the sensitive wildlife and critical habitats of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument from the threats of marine debris and towards maintenance of its many significant Hawaiian cultural sites.
A CRITICAL AREA IN NEED
Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument is the single largest conservation area under the U.S. flag and one of the largest marine conservation areas in the world and was inscribed as a mixed (natural and cultural) World Heritage Site. It covers an area of 582,578 square miles.
Marine debris have become a critical issue here due to the natural current that flows towards the islands carrying trash and marine debris with it. Being uninhabited without residents that routinely clean the area, a backlog of debris has accumulated and continues to.
