Milestone: BRACENET has donated over €250,000!
With BRACENET, you’re making a contribution to ocean conservation. More specifically, a double contribution: With every product, you help put an end to the menace of ghost nets and simultaneously donate towards the protection of the seas and marine life. Thank you for standing with us in the fight for the future of our oceans! We’re thrilled to announce our first major milestone:
To date, we have collectively donated over a quarter of a million Euros – €250,558!
We’re incredibly proud of this figure and all that we have achieved with this money. Whether it’s hundreds of tons of retrieved ghost nets, adopting a humpback whale, or protecting sharks – we’re certainly making a difference in the vast depths of the seas.
How are the donations allocated?
The majority of our donations, so far over €150,000, go to our closest partner organizations, Healthy Seas and Ghost Diving. We have been working together from the get-go, as these two initiatives recover ghost nets from all the world’s oceans and intercept discarded fishing nets from fisheries to prevent them from ending up there in the first place. Our regular donations fund things like boat rentals, diving equipment, hazard training, and education for children.
Additionally, we have been able to donate more than €90,000 to a multitude of different projects that help the seas, marine life, and people as well. Among these are well-known marine and environmental conservation organizations like Sea Shepherd, Shark Allies, and the Norwegian Orca Survey, as well as humanitarian organizations like Leave No One Behind, Doctors Without Borders, and Pink Ribbon.
We aim to show you transparently how the purchase of our products has supported, and continues to support, these projects. Therefore, in this blog, we will introduce you to all our donation projects along with their respective donation amounts. We will regularly update the list, as we continue to collect donations to fight for the green future of our seas and the world. Some transfers will soon follow, for example, to Earth Justice for the Stop Willow Bracenet and ongoing donations to Healthy Seas and Ghost Diving.
