What is honu? 
(pronounced ho-noo)

Honu is the Hawaiian name for the beautiful green sea turtles often spotted swimming the shallow waters of the Pacific on the shores of the Hawaiian islands and was the first sea turtle species our founders ever saw in the wild. Hence the inspiration for Shop Honu founded in 2017. With 6 out of the 7 species of sea turtles now tragically endangered, our store was created to do what we can to help prevent their extinction. We are partnered with the Sea Turtle Conservancy in Florida and we donate 10% of our profits to aid the amazing work that they do.
 
By buying from honu, you'll be benefitting sea turtle conservation through the work of Sea Turtle Conservancy, the world's oldest and most accomplished sea turtle research and conservation.
Their vital work helps towards restoring the nesting habitat of sea turtles and maximising the survival rate of hatchlings throughout the Caribbean. 
 

95% of our packaging is recyclable or made from recycled materials, minimising the risk to sea life and many other animals and the environment. Our aim is to make our packaging as environmentally friendly as possible.
You can help to make a difference.
