The First Coral-saving Laptop Sleeve
Did you know: a native species in the indo-pacific, Lionfish is a significant invasive species in the west Atlantic, Caribbean Sea, and Mediterranean Sea?
As a result of human error in the late 1980s, a handful of lionfish slipped undetected into Atlantic waters off the coast of Florida. Fast forward to today, the invasive lionfish has completely taken over the Atlantic Ocean from Boston to Brazil to Barcelona. Everywhere they appear, they destroy coral reefs and oceanic food chains.
Invasive Lionfish affect over 42+ million livelihoods in the Western Atlantic Basin that make their living from coral reefs. Invasive Lionfish in these regions not only destroy native biodiversity and the health of the coral reef systems but also destroy the livelihoods of local fishermen by killing off the fish they catch for a living.
To raise awareness of this dangerous threat to marine eco-systems and to enable the precious coral reef ecosystems to rehabilitate, we partnered up with INVERSA Leathers, a sustainable leather company that specializes in removing certified destructive invasive fish from the ocean and making them into beautiful and practical leather to launch a special addition to our Captain Sleeve family: the Captain Sleeve Plus.
By removing invasive lionfish predators, we enable the precious coral reef ecosystems to rehabilitate. For each lionfish, we can protect up to 70,000 native reef fish. Using the leather from invasive lionfish allows the reefs to rebuild from this destruction.
