How To Save The Planet With The Ocean Foundation

"Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love."

Lao Tzu

If you're lucky enough to live by an ocean I hope you're surrounding yourself with nature's beauty.  The ocean is a magnificent body of wonder with parts of it and its creatures unknown. On the other side, our magnificent oceans are also in deep trouble. The negative impact of greenhouse gas emissions from human activity can already be seen today. And its adverse effects include rising air and water temperatures, ocean acidification, coral bleaching, sea level rise, loss of marine mammals, and the decline of fisheries.

Since day one, we've committed to giving back to the community. We believe that purchase power is activism. It's important to give our community a voice in saying what matters. That's why there are five causes to choose from, ranging from ocean conservation to mental health. You can save the planet everyday and give back to important causes. 

We get a lot of questions asking, "How did you choose the non-profits?" Starting with an online tool, Charity Navigator, to research NGOs and learn how donations are used and how each non-profit is run. Organizations listed with scores allow auditors to review records and share how they run their NGOs.

That's how we discovered our favorite ocean conservation non-profit, The Ocean Foundation (TOF). They have maintained an "A" rating over the years. That means they're financially accountabilty and transparent in their operations.

The Ocean Foundation's Impact on the Ocean as of July 2022:

What we love even more about TOF is they have various global programs you can support. You can donate directly to support TOF’s general operations or to support one of their specific conservation initiatives or their SeaGrass Grow program. Carbon offset funds donated to The Ocean Foundation’s SeaGrass Grow program support the conservation and restoration of mangroves, seagrass and salt marshes throughout the world.  Through SeaGrass Grow, you can calculate your own carbon footprint and offset it through a donation.  SeaGrass Grow is part of the Blue Resilience Initiative which also provides practical, hands-on training for local conservation practitioners to equip them with the resources and expertise to launch and sustain successful projects in their own region

To learn about how seagrass and bamboo toothbrushes can combat climate change, visit the article here. There are so many ways we can collectively save the planet.

The Ocean Foundation also has a Community Ocean Engagement Global Initiative, International Ocean Acidification Initiative, and a Redesigning Plastics Initiative

When you shop our blue collection, you are supporting so many amazing movements to reverse the trend of destruction of ocean environments around the world.
