As designers, we not only have the chance but the obligation to make our own contribution to a more sustainable society. Doing whatever is possible to reduce the impacts and act mindfully helps enormously to go easy on the resources.
But this isn’t enough, so a for-purpose-model gets integrated: Every year a percentage of the profit (approximately 5 %) is donated to NGOs/organizations. Those NGOs/organizations are mainly working in the field of protection and/or marine research for the oceans and animals. Those NGOs/organizations will be introduced to the audience and clients, so they know which organization they supported indirectly. The audience and clients can also suggest NGOs/organizations they believe would benefit from a donation and help conserve our nature.
This for-purpose model means the clients don’t just invest in themselves but also do good for our planet and future generations by doing so.

NGOs, organizations, and collaborations I plan to donate to:
Project Manaia are a small but growing Ocean Conservation NGO (Nonprofit Organization) based in Austria who works at Sea. They are crossing the Mediterranean on a mission to preserve Seagrass, investigate invasive species and clear out marine debris.
Do you know an organization that does something important for our oceans, and therefore for us?
