It’s World Oceans Day!
Take a look at what our awesome partners are doing, to help our oceans (and us) get healthier. With your help, we can build a more sustainable future for our planet and the communities that inhabit it.
Every day we are bombarded with news about climate change, sea levels rising, melting ice caps, and thermal expansion. And it’s all important but it can be overwhelming. So let’s start with the most basic thing – the air we breathe. The oceans and specifically marine plant life are responsible for 70% of the oxygen in the atmosphere, according to National Geographic. So, the simplest reason to care about ocean health is for your own and those around you.
Soma x Charity : Water
Single-use plastics are the main culprit of ocean pollution. One way to keep single-use plastic out of our oceans is quite simple - don't use it.
For every year you use your Soma Water Bottle you are keeping an average of 156 plastic bottles out of our oceans. And with every Soma purchase 1% of profits help our partners at Charity:Water provide clean water to those who don’t have access to it. How we drink our water, matters. Donate here
Full Circle x Plastic Bank
Full Circle is 100% Plastic Neutral. This means that for every ounce of plastic we use, we work with Plastic Bank® to recover and recycle the same amount of plastic that would otherwise enter our oceans. Plastic Bank® builds ethical recycling ecosystems in coastal communities and reprocesses the materials for reintroduction into the global supply chain. Collectors receive a premium for the materials they collect to help them provide basic family necessities, such as groceries, school tuition and health insurance. Our everyday purchases can have a big impact in the lives of people that need it the most. Donate here
For Good x Rethink Food
108 billion pounds of perfectly good food goes to waste every year, while more than 38 million Americans lack reliable access to nutritious meals. Rethink Food wants to create a more sustainable and equitable food system, where everyone has access to high-quality, nutritious, and affordable food - at the same time as reducing the environmental and human issue that is food waste. For Good is a proud partner of donating 1% of profits to help scale Rethink Food’s mission, but we are also on our own mission to make preserving food more sustainable. Donate here
