The sand brittle star Ophiura ophiura is a member of the class Ophiuroidea which is the largest group of echinoderms. We chose this incredible ‘other worldly” creature to help raise awareness of how echinoderms are being affected by microplastics. We were really pleased to be in touch with Marine plastic scientist and doctoral research student Winnie Courtene-Jones, who has written a blog for us about her research into how micro plastics are being eaten by deep sea brittle stars at depths of 2500m. You can read more about it in her blog
The art work for this T-shirt is from an original by Ian Hughes and is also available as a notebook.
10% of profits from these t-shirts will go to #2minutebeachclean we love the work they are doing showing that everyone can make a difference to the plastic pollution problem in just 2 minutes! They say – ‘We believe that every piece of litter removed from the beach matters. So it doesn’t matter if you do 2 minutes or 30. Each and every piece of marine plastic removed from the beach is a piece that will no longer go on to kill.’ And we couldn’t agree more!
T- shirts are a standard unisex fit,
They are machine washable at 30°c
