Sea Arch Drinks have formed a unique partnership with The Seahorse Trust

Based on the South Devon coast near one of our study sites, Sea Arch produces an award-winning distilled non-alcoholic spirit. Bursting with coastal botanicals, Sea Arch is a deliciously refreshing alternative to alcohol.

Sea Arch Drinks co-founder Sarah Yates says, “We’re excited about the new partnership with The Seahorse Trust, supporting the important work they do to protect the marine environment, not only here in Devon, but across the UK and around the world. We are fortunate to have such a vast range of species living in and around our shores, and feel strongly that we have a responsibility to provide a safe and sustainable ecosystem for them. The marine conservation work that The Seahorse Trust does is vital in protecting seahorses and their natural habitats so that they – and we – can enjoy our coastlines for many years to come.”

We are really happy to be working with Sea Arch Drinks and look forward to a long partnership, helping to protect our seas together.

The Sea Arch name is inspired by the London Arch in Torbay, home of both species of British Seahorses, where The Seahorse Trust are studying these amazing ‘little horses of the sea’.

 

Just as the waves have washed away some of the cliff to create something truly stunning – a natural stone arch in the ocean – so the removal of the alcohol in Sea Arch Coastal Juniper leaves you able to taste and savour the layers of complex natural botanical flavours, making it even more beautiful without.

Sea Change Wines

Ethically sourced eco friendly wines

Are passionate about two things: protecting our oceans from plastic pollution and great tasting wine. Every bottle of Sea Change helps fund ocean conservation projects across the globe and our minimal packaging reduces waste and environmental impact.

We have just teamed up with Sea Change Wines for a special promotion, which is amazing news for seahorses and great news for wine lovers. Sea Change is a wine company with a difference, they are tackling the issue of plastic waste and helping conserve the natural world. Thank you to them for this amazing offer.

Lizzie from Sea Change Wine says,

‘At Sea Change wine, we are passionate about two things: protecting marine environments from plastic pollution and great tasting wine. We believe that everyone has a role to play in tackling the problem of plastics in our oceans. For every bottle sold, a donation is made to marine conservation charities who are actively fighting plastic pollution.

Packaging has been minimised on every bottle to reduce waste: natural corks made using renewable energy are used, and we’ve removed the unnecessary plastic wrap around the cork. The labels are made partially from grape waste and lovingly hand drawn by our designer Katie. Take a closer look and you’ll see the marine animals represent the problem: they’re filled with plastic.

Beauty Kitchen have put together a brilliant video about their Seahorse Plankton+ range! Click the image above to view.

Beauty Kitchen

A SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR FRIENDS AT BEAUTY KITCHEN

Our friends at Beauty Kitchen have continually offered to sponsor our work at The Seahorse Trust over the years by committing to donating 1% of sales (not profits!) of their award winning, 100% vegan Seahorse Plankton+ range, most recently to The Studland Seahorse Project.

Leaping Bunny certified by Cruelty Free International, the Seahorse Plankton+ range is also certified microplastic free by the Plastic Soup Foundation. Containing a super advanced blend of scientifically proven microalgae that Beauty Kitchen grown in giant algae baths, the microalgae absorb Co2 and release oxygen – creating renewable energy that they sell back to the electricity grid. This also means no resources are taken directly from the oceans that feed natural sea life (including seahorses!).

Beauty Kitchen are determined to end single use packaging waste by pioneering their groundbreaking Return•Refill•Repeat programme where customers can send back empty packaging to be used again & again.

Seahorse Sculptures

AMAZING SCULPTURES BY NICOLAS PAIN

Wildlife Artist and SCUBA diver, Nicolas Pain, has created two  fabulous sculptures. Each depicts Spiny Seahorses. One features a single Seahorse holding on tightly to a strand of seagrass in a strong current, while the second shows two Seahorses floating gently in calmer waters. Both sculptures accurately portray exquisitely detailed seahorses in their natural habitat. Nicolas’ work is inspired by many years of diving mainly in the UK.

Each sculpture is a foundry-cast bronze in a strictly limited edition of 18 and each is signed by the artist. These are offered here in conjunction with The Seahorse Trust and the artist will donate 15% of the sale price to the Trust. T

The dimensions of the single Seahorse are D17cm X W30cm XH43cm and the two seahorses together are D25cm X W14cm X H62cm. Both are supplied in hand made wooden presentation boxes.

The single Seahorse is priced at £1850 and the double at £2400. This price includes shipping on the UK mainland.

Seahorse art

Unique one off Seahorse art

Since taking early retirement Patti Boness has been able to indulge her love of art and crafts.  I am still exploring many forms and media.

Her work is varied – from a  simple style of Pointillism, developed preferring to use sepia and black pens, to Tuscany landscapes in acrylic and to her most recent work using slate, beach finds and metallic paints set in resin.

Her inspiration comes from a love of the countryside and many years of diving, with her first sighting of a Seahorse whilst diving off the south coast of England.

Following this passion for seahorses, Patti now donates 10% from any sales of her products featuring a seahorse to the Seahorse Trust.

Purchases can be made by contacting Patti at pattiboness1@gmail.com
