Mark your calendar and get ready to come on in to the shop on Saturday October 29th for our first ever Clearance Sale! We’ve pulled together discontinued or overstocked items that need to go and are offering them at super-low prices. This is a one-day sale so be sure not to miss it!
Many divers have already heard how the lionfish, a species native to the Pacific, is invading the Caribbean. The lionfish is a voracious predator who breeds quickly, upsetting the fragile balance of our marine ecosystem.
While as divers we are often encouraged to eat lionfish and sometimes learn how to hunt them, did you know there’s another way you can help? Wear lionfish jewelry!
Conservation groups are working with women in local communities through several countries in the Caribbean to create beautiful earrings, necklaces and more using lionfish spines, tails and fins.
Blue Planet is proud to be one of the first venues in Washington, DC to carry this lionfish jewelry! Stop by the shop to check out our amazing selection. These make great gifts for divers and non-divers alike. All proceeds go to women’s group and marine conservation.
On September 27, 2016, several of the artists will be in DC. Join us to “Meet the Artists”!
