Protecting America’s wetlands, one can at a time.
Growing up on the Gulf Coast, we’ve always been surrounded by the beauty, benefits, and protections that the wetlands provide to both people and wildlife.
However, as we worked closely with the LSU AgCenter Rice Research Station in pursuit of the perfect Louisiana rice, we began to develop a deeper understanding of the vital role of the wetlands.
Natural wetlands not only support the cultivation of rice—a worldwide food staple—but they also offer benefits that no other ecosystem does. Just like rain forests and coral reefs, wetlands are considered one of the world’s richest and most diverse ecosystems.
Wetlands improve natural water quality, create flood protection, control shoreline erosion, absorb wind and tidal forces, and provide habitats for fish, plants, and animals. They are beautiful, important spaces that need to be preserved for future generations.
The U.S. has lost more than half of the wetlands in the lower 48 states, and we continue to lose a football field of wetlands every 9 minutes. As we worked to create a product we loved, we knew we had to do something to protect the land we love.
Wetlands Sake pledges to donate 2% of profits to Save America’s Wetlands. This is our way of contributing to conservation throughout the U.S., and we hope you will join us in this cause.
