Our Focus

Our oceans uphold all life on Earth.

Human impact on our environment is profound and far-reaching, with severe consequences that are becoming increasingly apparent. Plastic is littering our landscapes and oceans, harming wildlife and entering our food chain. Overfishing is depleting fish stocks to the point of collapse, threatening the livelihoods of those who depend on them and the balance of marine ecosystems. 


These issues are interconnected, their effects having significant environmental, social, and economic implications with lasting impacts on our planet’s most essential ecosystem, our oceans. It's clear that our current trajectory is unsustainable, and urgent action is needed to mitigate our impact and create harmonious coexistence between our planet and future generations.

Vote With Your Dollar Initiative

Our Vote With Your Dollar Initiative is designed to further the awareness of environmental preservation in our communities through providing consumer solutions to pollution caused by plastics and persistent chemicals. Our purchasing power is one of the most consistent ways we interact with and shape our economy. By diverting consumer spending to our network of vetted businesses, we begin a shift towards an economy that prioritizes the environmental, societal, and ethical impacts of business.

Cleanup Initiative

Our Cleanup Initiative addresses the inundation of plastic pollution in our environment by mobilizing volunteers to make an impact in their local areas. While cleanups play a crucial role in mitigating plastic pollution, it is essential to recognize that they primarily serve as a reactive measure. Through our efforts, we aspire to cultivate a sense of community responsibility and collective action to create impactful lasting change, encouraging sustainable waste management practices and highlighting the urgency of preserving and protecting our ecosystems.
