Why building an ocean purpose brand? 

 

Our recommendations encourage each business to invest in brand and mission-aligned nonprofit solutions that are critical for the planet and that help the business thrive.

92% of consumers say they have a more positive image of the company when they support a social or environmental issue. 89% of consumers would switch brands to one associated with a cause, given equal or comparable value.

Ocean advocates love Turtles and probably you too if you are reading this. Sea turtles are iconic animals, which nobody wants to lose. By partnering with Turtle Rescue organizations your ocean brand can demonstrate to your customers and employees that your company wants to be part of the solution.

If you choose rescuing turtles as your purpose for your Ocean activist brand, here are few top organizations that can be aligned with your Ocean Brand’s mission. You can choose a Worldwide mission or a locally-based organization.

 

Reason to back Turtle conservations programs:

Sea turtle populations declined by 80% during the last century, largely due to human threats. Famous species in danger are Hawksbill, loggerhead, Green turtle, Leatherback turtle, Flatbacks, Kemps ridleys and Olive Ridleys.

 

Build official partnerships, not scams

You want to build a real business with real values and real promises. Are you aware of the term greenwashing? If you are using sustainability just as pure marketing, the ball will bounce back against you sooner or later. Make sure to build mutual agreement partnerships with organizations that share the same values as your brand. Also, ensure that they are happy to have their name associated with your brand before posting their logo on your website or social media post, many of these organizations offer partnering packages where they let you put their logo on your marketing in exchange for annual donations… Some organizations offer tracking and verifiable resources for every purchase or donation. These will enhance your trust as a reputable ocean activist brand.

Another model is adopting a turtle. Your Ocean activist brand can support non-profit organizations by symbolically adopting a sea turtle patient. Adoptions directly benefit the continued care and treatment of threatened species. Many non-profits offer adoption packages. Make sure you build a trustworthy solid partnership before engaging sales.

Another alternative is full fill an application with 1% for the planet organization. and include turtle organizations as supporting partners. This would not allow you to have a logo directly with organizations but 1% is

International organizations
