YAW Store has been supporting EJF this June by helping run our Just For pop-up shop on Newburgh Street and by donating a percentage of their fabulous ethical wares to our Oceans work. Their support has been amazing this month, and they have helped raise awareness about our work to protect people and planet. Yet as the doors closed on the shop last Sunday, 22nd June, YAW Store decided that they wanted to continue to support our work by donating 20% of sales from their sea themed ‘A Question of..’ stock to support EJF Save the Sea.
The amazing support by YAW Store this past June has helped support EJF’s oceans campaign which works to end pirate fishing in West Africa and end human trafficking, slave labour, and human rights abuses aboard fishing fleets across the world. Our recent work in Thailand aided the recently published Guardian investigation into slavery at sea, whilst our work in Sierra Leone has enabled communities to log and report illegal fishing vessels, which we monitor and pursue, resulting in over $100,000 of fines and deterring vessels from destroying the sea bed and food source for local people.
