These days, more of us are choosing who to do business with based on more than just the products they sell or the services they provide. It is also important to know what those companies stand for. More companies are recognizing that it is necessary to acknowledge the negative impact humanity is having on the Earth and are dedicated to finding ways to reduce the negative impact and put something back in the way of gratitude.
We can't all do EVERYTHING but we can each do SOMETHING.
Our way to acknowledge and give gratitude is by honoring our parents and their love for the ocean. Our parents, Kenneth and Irma (Labella) Macgregor loved the ocean so much that they sold their 3-bedroom victorian home to buy and live aboard a sailboat. They said, "Life is too short not to do what you love." They piloted Windsong, by themselves, from the dark and cold water of the Boston harbor to the warm and blue waters of the Bahamas. It was they who taught us you can do anything if you put your mind to it.
And, so here we are putting our mind and money to where our intentions are. When you make an online purchase, $1 from each transaction will go to The Ocean Cleanup project. We selected the Ocean Cleanup project because they have developed advanced technologies to rid the oceans of plastic. In fact the goal is to remove 50% of plastics from the oceans every five years. In addition, the collected plastic trash will be transformed into sustainable products that will further fund the continuation of the cleanup operations. The results so far are quite impressive and we want to help them continue their important work.
