True Warriors! The Crew of the Sea Shepherd MV Brigitte Bardot, Antigua

   True Warriors! 
  The Crew of the Sea Shepherd MV Brigitte Bardot, Antigua.

It is late at night in my skinny bunk on board the Marine Vessel Brigitte Bardot and I am rolling slightly while reviewing my menu for tomorrow.. This ship was built for speed, not comfort and held the world record for the fastest circumnavigation of the globe for almost 20 years. 



I have been invited to crew for five days as a vegan chef in a kitchen the size of my handbag, my small handbag. Or maybe four pairs of shoes for my rather large feet..?

After studying cooking in seven counties and owning restaurants I think I can handle anything. 

However I soon realize I would much rather hang with the amazing, international and hugely talented crew and take everyone to dinner every night... a great deal more fun! 

I have an extreme admiration for Sea Shepherds mission and have designed and dedicated a bedding collection to them.





Our Anna Sova Sea Shepherd Collection in Sea Mist Blue




We are at port in Antigua and the movement of the waves is so subtle that you don’t recognize movement till your feet touch the hardness of the land. Then you are jarred back into how hard and motionless the land and the people of the land can be.




Are you familiar with Sea Shepherd? Have you ever seen the television show Whale Wars? Tales of violent conflict on high seas...That is Sea Shepherd. Founded forty years ago by Captain Paul Watson after he co founded Greenpeace. Captain Watson believes more aggressive action is needed to protect and conserve our oceans. 

We feel so passionately about Sea Shepherd we donate from 5% to 40% of every purchase with the website purchase code: loveseashepherd







Our Anna Sova Sea Shepherd Collection in Indigo



           

.Our elegant Italian Matelasse with an ironic Japanese wood block design of an ocean filled with happy Whales, Dolphins, Vaquita Porpoises and Sea Turtles all protected by Sea Shepherd Ships majestically riding the worlds waves.

We are at port in Antigua and the movement of the waves is so subtle that you don’t recognize movement till your feet touch the hardness of the land. Then you are jarred back into how hard and motionless the land and the people of the land can be.

The reality on land is the worlds consumption of seafood has led to extreme over fishing. The heroes in this story are the environmental activists who risk their lives to save the marine life this planet so desperately depends on.


After seeing the evil ship Nissan Maru, capable of processing an entire years worth of seafood quota in three weeks I realize Captain Watson is extremely accurate in his assessments.

Help Sea Shepherd fight a monumental battle in the oceans that we can not really grasp from our land locked safe havens filled with plastic bottles and disposable consumer goods;


Please visit the beloved Brigitte Bardot
