Advocate Apparel Inspired by the green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas)

A solitary species that rarely interacts with others outside of mating rituals, sea turtles struggle to survive from the day they hatch out of their egg. Sea turtle mortality rates are depressingly high, about 99% of juveniles will meet their demise before reaching sexual maturity.

6 out of the 7 species of sea turtles are listed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as either vulnerable or critically endangered. Marine turtles are threatened by pollution, marine plastics and debris, climate change, boat strikes, poaching and bycatch, and habitat loss.

LOVE the print

Love sea turtles and this reminds me of the shells. Leggings are thicker since it’s recycled plastic. I do normally wear a medium and these are a little big and I would have sized down.

Leslie Lockhart (Mountain View, HI, US)
I adore this pattern!

Must be seen to be appreciated. Longtime wanderlust fan! Happy customer!

Awesome leggings

I wasn’t sure how these would fit; everyone’s sizes vary a little, but they are excellent! I’m 5’9” and 225# and the 2XL was a little looser than I thought it would be, but fit quite nicely! The waist and lengths are great, they stay up well when working out and the pattern is gorgeous! I love talking sea turtle facts to people who ask about them!

Ali (Bradenton, FL, US)
Absolutely LOVE

I am 5’9” usually a medium or a large. I went with the mediums and they fit perfectly! I can’t wait to get on the water and wear them!

Amazing Leggings

Aside from the awesome fact they are made from recycled materials, these feel and look amazing. Print is very vivid and does not fade, great pockets and fit. Highly recommend!

Celine (Minneapolis, MN, US)

You know it's a good find when your husband exclaims, "They look even better in person!" I couldn't be more thrilled with these. Not only do they fit great and have lovely deep pockets, the fold-over waist option is lovely and the ability to trim their length is a WINNER (especially for shorties like me at 5'1). The cherry on top is the beautiful pattern and wonderful cause it contributes to. So pleased and have already ordered another pair. :)
