The Bimini Shark Lab has recently partnered with some amazing companies! Whether it be products for our crew to use in the field while conducting research, or donations generated through a meaningful collaboration, these companies have teamed up to support us and our research efforts!
Fourth Element has taken sustainable to a new level! They create wetsuits and garments using recycled and even plant based materials, use less water in production, and make an all around conscious effort to minimize environmental impact. Fourth Element has partnered with the Shark Lab, providing our Research Team with OceanPositive garments and SurfaceSuits (made from plants!) to keep us warm and comfortable while we're out in the field! We are proud to be supported by a company who shares our values!
Waterlust creates beautiful, eye-catching, ocean themed & recycled apparel for water people everywhere! They have a variety of organizations and research groups that they support through a portion of their proceeds, and we are happy to have the Bimini Shark Lab as part of their Positive Impact Partnership (PIP) program. This means when ordering any apparel through our affiliate link (below), it will result in 25% of the profits from your order being immediately donated to the BBFSF!
Spending hours and hours on the water can be straining on the eyes if not properly protected. Costa Sunglasses provides our Research Team with high quality, polarized sunglasses to keep our eyes safe from harmful UVA/UVB rays, and also help us #SeeWhatsOutThere!
Over the last few years, AllMatters (formerly OrganiCup) has generously donated 60 menstrual cups to the Bimini Shark Lab's volunteers and researchers. Now, dealing with a period while out in the field can be the last thing anyone will have to worry about! Not only do the cups provide comfort & discretion, they also help us produce less waste (globally, period products produce over 200 000 tonnes of waste per year). You can get an AllMAtters menstrual cup for 20% off with our code ORGANISHARK at the checkout (and free shipping worldwide too!)
Legend Bracelets have created an eco-friendly, cork tree bark Shark Bracelet which supports the Bimini Shark Lab's research. Each Shark Legend Bracelet has two capsules - one contains a piece of ghost net which has been removed from the ocean, and the other is empty and ready to be filled with sand, earth or something that is meaningful. 12% of the profits from each Shark Legend Bracelet sold will be donated to the BBFSF.
Did you know chemical sunscreen contributes to the decline of coral life? We proudly recommend Stream2Sea Reef-Safe & Biodegradable sunscreens and skin care products. By using our coupon code (BIMINISHARKLAB) or the affiliate link below while purchasing these coral friendly products, you will actually be donating 20% of the profits from your sale to the Shark Lab! It's a win-win-win for our oceans!
Made in the USA with certified organic cotton, Bee's Wrap uses responsibly-sourced beeswax, certified organic plant oils, and tree resin to create a durable, yet pliable wrap that can be used again and again. Bee's Wrap provided the Shark Lab with a variety of their Ocean themed wraps, and we are thrilled to have a sustainable alternative to plastic cling wrap to use on our little island which has limited options for garbage waste.
