At REEF KNOTS, we're passionate about the health of our oceans, the creation of marine reserves and the reduction in ocean plastics. Since our launch, we've been committed to supporting a charitable partner that enables us to give back to the place that originally inspired us. We’re incredibly proud to be an official corporate partner of the Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE).
The Problem - 90% of wild fish stocks are over-fished or fully exploited. Without fish, the oceans cannot absorb CO2, millions of livelihoods are lost and food security is threatened. Healthy oceans = healthy planet.
The Solution - By designating large parts of the world's oceans as marine reserves and banning industrial fishing in these areas, fish stocks are able to recover and ecosystems thrive.
Please watch the following video to better understand the situation and how real change is taking place (but this needs to continue):
How does REEF KNOTS help?
REEF KNOTS raises money for BLUE through the sale of special edition products that donate 25% of proceeds to the charity. We also raise awareness and funds through other ad hoc events and campaigns, as well as supporting BLUE's fundraising tasks such as the annual London2Monaco cycle ride.
How can I help?
Like any charity, BLUE needs more support and action from partners, celebrity ambassadors, governments, NGOs, but also from members of the public like you. So we’re asking REEF KNOTS customers to give something to BLUE and help them in their brilliant work. There are all sorts of ways you can support them:
- DONATE - head to BLUE's Just Giving page and dive deep into your pockets to help fund their conversation work around the world.
- SHOP - Buy a product that donates money direct to the Blue Marine Foundation.
- VOLUNTEER -become a BLUE volunteer by donating your time. From fundraisers to translators, advertisers to photographers, BLUE is always wanting to hear from people who can offer their services to the cause.
- SHARE - help spread the word by liking BLUE's Facebook page and Twitter feed, and you'll be raising awareness about the crisis in our oceans to your friends and family.
