By buying a product of the Sea&Science collection of the Flanders Marine Institute you support the sea. This first gadget line includes sweaters (40 EUR), t-shirts (20 EUR) and cotton bags (10 EUR). 100% organic cotton, 100% fair trade. The profit goes for 100% to the philanthropy of VLIZ.
The products have, aside quotes, illustrations of marine organisms. These derive from books available in the VLIZ library.
- The drawing of the lumpfish used on VLIZ-products comes from the book 'Poissons marins' of the Belgian scientist Max Poll. The publication dates from 1947 and was issued by the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences. The book is present in the VLIZ library.
- The drawing of the edible crab used on VLIZ products comes from the book ‘A history of the British stalk-eyed Crustacea’ written by Thomas Bell. The publication dates back to 1853. This ancient book can be consulted in the VLIZ library, but you can browse it online.
Purchases can be done at VLIZ events (VLIZ Marine Science Day, World Ocean Day, VLIZ members' day, Science Day, etc.) or through the webshop.
