Looking for a great holiday gift for someone? How about handmade soaps, with 100 percent of your purchase of $45 or more going to the Lisa Jo Randgaard Fund at the Sea Turtle Conservancy, which supports sea turtle protection? These special soaps are stamped with a sea turtle design and come in five scents using essential oils:  Citrus, Lavender-Litsea, Lemongrass, Rosemary-Mint and our brand new Sea Clay!  Go to loveintosustainedaction.com to learn more.

Also, did you know that eco-tourism can support or harm wildlife such as endangered sea turtles?  Observing naturally rather than feeding, touching or chasing sea turtles is the best way to protect them.  Feeding sea turtles reduces their fear of humans, making them vulnerable to obesity, egg and meat poaching, and motor boat propeller injury and death.

Jenny Randgaard, Lisa’s mother, is a former Norix Furniture sales representative who worked for the company for more than 20 years. Click here to read the story of her daughter who passed away in 2012 and the sea turtle conservation work her family continues to conduct in her memory.
