Question: Why are there 5 eggs engraved on my glasses?
Answer: They represent the 5 baby sea turtles that are saved by purchasing the glasses.
Billion Baby Turtles was founded in 2008 by Brad Nahill and Dr. Wallace J. Nichols. Their amazing program supports sea turtle conservation organizations that work to protect sea turtle hatchlings across Latin America. The funds go towards paying local residents to patrol important turtle nesting beaches, protecting turtles that come up to nest, and ensuring that the eggs are protected.
