One of our favorite parts of running our small business is that we can give back to organizations doing wonderful work for people and the oceans. Two of our favorite nonprofits are Dive Into the Pink and The Olive Ridley Project.
Dive Into the Pink
Dive Into the Pink encourages scuba diving as a way to support the fight against breast cancer. Founded by breast cancer survivor, Allison Vitsky Sallmon, a veteran diver and talented photographer, DITP runs dive charters and auctions from which 100% of proceeds benefit cancer research. A portion of proceeds from the sale of our limited edition DITP shirt will be donated to the effort.
The Olive Ridley Project
The Olive Ridley Project's mission is to reduce ghost gear (abandoned or discarded fishing gear) that is found in the Indian Ocean. Such debris can be detrimental to marine life, especially to vulnerable animals like olive ridley turtles. Like with Dive Into the Pink, we've specially crafted a design comprised of olive ridley turtles, ghosts nets and other marine debris to in order to spread awareness about the need to maintain clean oceans. This limited edition tee is made from Recycled Polyester made from Plastic Bottles and Organic Cotton.
