World Oceans Day 2021

Today, we are celebrating our magical Oceans. Filled with an abundance of vistas and enchanting ecosystems, our Oceans are crucial in drawing carbon from the atmosphere and producing 50% of our oxygen. However, the strain that we have put on the Ocean over many decades, is causing the many resources it offers to become depleted. The ecosystems are slowly being destroyed due to the rising temperatures of the water. It is essential that urgent action is taken now. That is why the United Nations launched the Decade of Ocean Science. From 2021 to 2030 the UN hope to bring communities…

World Water Day 2021

March 22nd marks World Water Day. The United Nations have asked: what does water mean to you? And how can our water be better protected across the world? Here is Bare Native’s pledge… We cannot survive without water, yet many treat our water supplies as if they are disposable. Increases in oil spills, poor sanitation and warming of the oceans means urgent action is needed if we are to protect this vital supply. Whilst we may think that access to water is a given right, it remains something of a privilege. Minority communities and countries continue to be adversely impacted…

The history of Mersea Islands infamous Natives

Thomas Fuller made a significant claim for Essex oysters in 1622, stating that ‘the best in England, fat, green-finned, are bred near Colchester where they have an excellent art to feed them in pits for that purpose’. We like to think that Fuller was hinting towards our very own Natives on Mersea, in our expert opinion they are the best. That is exactly why we use them in all of our products. Why Native? Mersea oystermen worked, and still do work, tirelessly, dedicating their lives to the production of the finest oyster in England. It was set out in 1879…
