Partners in purifying the blue.
It's only because of our incredible partnerships that we can stay dedicated to donating 50% of our profits to ocean cleanup. Each organization we work with is committed to innovating, impacting, and saving our oceans in more ways than one. We are so lucky to have these partners by our side –together, we hope to set a standard of ethical business that keeps the environment at the forefront.
#tide ocean material
#tide ocean material is our primary ocean cleanup and manufacturing partner. They, along with other social enterprises, collect ocean-bound plastic in Southeast Asia. On five islands in the Andaman Sea, local fishermen are trained and paid to gather and sort plastic waste. The material is registered, washed, shredded, then upcycled into our beautiful products.
#tide is much more than just a recycling company. By building a global supply chain for a premium second life raw material made from 100% ocean bound plastic, #tide demonstrates what conscious entrepreneurship should look like in the 21st Century. #tide is both a material supplier and a strong label for social and environmental sustainability and transparency. Needless to say, we couldn't be happier they are on our team.
Fellow ocean lovers and adventure seekers, Project AWARE, are doing some amazing ocean conservation work. We've joined forces to further their mission of "connecting the passion for ocean adventure with the purpose of marine conservation." Project AWARE has spent over 25 years building a community of deep sea divers and ocean enthusiasts that not only cleanup the ocean, but create programs and policies to safeguard marine life and communities impacted by ocean pollution.
Project AWARE's conservation efforts are focused on community and policy. They work with local communities and international conservation agencies to address the greatest threats facing our oceans. Everything they do is grounded in science and research – resulting in real progress to make oceans clean and healthy again.
