While not an original post, I wanted to highlight the recent decision by SLS3 to donate $1.00 for each product sold to the Sea Shepherd. In today's business climate with companies typically focused on the bottom line and profits, it's always refreshing to see an organization to do what they can to give back. This makes me proud to partner with them again in 2012:
Oceanside, CA – January 26th. SLS3 the leader in compression sportswear just announced its support for Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS). $1 of every product that is being sold will be donated to Sea Shepherd.
Sea Shepherd is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization which uses direct action tactics to protect sealife.In 2008, Animal Planet began filming the weekly series Whale Wars based on the group's encounters with the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean.
“I watched the show a couple of years ago for the first time and was hooked ever since” says Sebastian Linke, owner of SLS3. “ In addition to building innovative products that reduce environmental impact, we take our social responsibility mission very seriously - We feel honored to be giving back to those who defend what is so precious to us all.”
