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!

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!

Extraordinary!!!!

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. :)

Dr. Fuentes with loggerhead turtle

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. Dr. Mariana Fuentes is a marine conservation biologist at Florida State University and focuses her research on developing science-based solutions for the conservation and management of sea turtles. Her research group integrates field-based ecology with systematic conservation planning, decision theory approaches, climate modeling and applied qualitative and geographic spatial analysis to answer a series of ecological and management topics related to sea turtles.

10% of profits from your purchase will be donated to the FSU Marine Turtle Research, Ecology and Conservation Group, led by Dr. Mariana Fuentes, and will be used to fund two projects. The first initiative is to assess the effects that the recreational bay scallop fishery has on sea turtles in the Big Bend of Florida. Researchers will collect biological, ecological and spatial data on sea turtles in the region and use it to inform management practices to better protect these endangered species. The second is to increase night monitoring of St. George Island, Florida and to identify threats to turtles nesting there. The information gained will aid in identifying critical habitats and provide important information to better understand the size, nesting behaviors, and movements of sea turtles in the region.
