Dear Media,

Communities are everything. They are at the heart of the work that we do every day, as we focus on being a better and stronger partner for healthy coastal communities, like yours. Interestingly, socially-minded businesses are taking note of our approach, sharing our values with their customers and, as a result, the importance of action on marine conservation is being amplified. 

At Nada Grocery in Vancouver, we’re holding a screening of Fractured Land on July 24. Co-director, co-producer and writer Fiona Rayher will lead a discussion, and the film’s protagonist Caleb Behn, an activist, lawyer and Indigenous leader defending his community from fracking, will give a special video message. 

Meanwhile, in Victoria, Discovery Coffee donated proceeds from beer sales at its recent Summer Sizzler and Latte Art Throwdown to our initiatives to protect orcas. And from farther away, NYC-based Hairstory, a 1% for the Planet partner, donated a portion of its New Wash product sales to GSA last quarter. 

We celebrate these community partnerships and welcome ideas from other socially-minded businesses that would like to demonstrate their commitment to the health of the Strait through creative initiatives like these. 

Because marine conservation matters.
