HOW IS BLUE SHARK WORKING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
From its inception, we created Blue Shark Vodka as a vessel to help keep our waterways along the Atlantic and beyond healthy.
BE COLORFUL BOTTLE
Blue Shark Vodka released its Be Colorful bottle featuring the vodka’s signature underwater artwork, Blue Shark and a Pride flag with the message, “Love” imposed inside. The coral reef at the bottom of the seascape is adorned with rainbow colors. Proceeds from the limited-edition series will go to the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN.) The organization works to end bullying and harassment based on sexual orientation and gender identity in K-12 schools.
THE WYLAND FOUNDATION
Our limited edition release of a bottle label designed by world-famous ocean muralist Wyland gave $1 from every sale to The Wyland Foundation. His foundation centers around educational programs in communities and schools, sharing with children the importance of ocean conservation.
THE ATLANTIC SHARK INSTITUTE BLUE SHARK TAGGING
This summer Blue Shark Vodka is partnering with The Atlantic Shark Institute. This organization conducts critical research and provides much-needed support and resources to the most respected shark researchers working in the northwest Atlantic. The result is high quality shark research completed in an open and collaborative way. The goal of the Atlantic Shark Institute is to partner with these researchers to answer the most pressing questions of biology, survival and sustainability of sharks in the northwest Atlantic Ocean.
Estimates show between 10 million and 100 million sharks are killed annually worldwide. For many species, harvests are not sustainable and an alarming number of species are considered vulnerable, endangered, or critically endangered as a result.
Blue Shark launched with a Wrightsville Beach, beach sweep with dozens of volunteers picking up litter along the dunes.
