NEW YORK, Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ECO SWIM By Aqua Green and retailer ziggie teamed up with the Sea Turtle Conservatory and the Endangered Species Coalition, in a collaborative effort to save endangered sea turtle hatchlings.

From July 11th to July 17th, up to 10% of the proceeds from all ECO SWIM sales on ziggie.com helped carry out sea turtle protection and recovery programs, as only 1 in 1,000 baby turtles survive to adulthood. The cause also helped to support free educational training, restoration of nesting habitats, and sea turtle-friendly lighting on beaches. "We are proud to partner with companies like ziggie who promote ethical brands and support environmental causes. We are thrilled to have made an impact and help in this initiative" said Sandra Davidoff, Director of Corporate Marketing and Public Relations at SWIM USA.

In a separate initiative, ECO SWIM and retail partners, alongside community volunteers have cleaned up numerous beaches and waterways around the country, collecting over 5 tons of trash that would otherwise end up in our oceans and rivers.
