New Plastic Recycled Tags for Coral Restoration Introduced


The Reef Renewal Foundation Bonaire recently announced a new partnership with NOBO, which developed a plastic recycled tag to support coral restoration activities on Bonaire.

The idea for the tag was presented to various nature NGOs on the island, and RRFB was immediately enthusiastic about the plastic recycled tag as a way to support their work.

The foundation offers a diving training course where divers can learn about the reef restoration methods that are used on Bonaire.

The “Donature Tag,” which can be attached to a BCD or used as a key chain, is imprinted with RRFB’s logo and will initially be sold at RRFB affiliated dive shops. All tag proceeds will directly support RRFB’s reef restoration work in Bonaire.

According to RRFB Coordinator Francesca Virdis:

“Collaborations between nature organizations on this island are critical to make the difference, and we hope that people will show their love for Bonaire and support to local nature protection and restoration initiatives by purchasing the unique Donature Tag.”
