Recycling Oyster Shells on National Oyster Day

#DYK that today is National Oyster Day? I’m sure I’m not only speaking for myself when I say that this is a very important holiday here in the Lowcountry 

Oysters not only play a vital part in the social lives + outdoor gatherings of Charlestonians – they also play a major role in our ocean’s ecosystem. These slimy shellfish filter sea water, create reefs that act as habitats for other creatures and reduce erosion, and serve as food for both humans + animals.

While you may have already known this about one of the Lowcountry’s favorite shellfish, did you also know that we can help oysters help the environment by recycling their shells?
