Sea Shepherd UK is a registered marine conservation charity whose primary mission is to Defend, Conserve, and Protect ocean wildlife and habitats. They currently manage direct action campaigns, including the exposing of and campaigning against the commercial whaling of ‘threatened’ species in Iceland and the Faroese dolphin and whale hunts known as ‘grindadrap’, in an attempt to end the destruction of habitats and illegal killing of wildlife around the UK’s coastline and across the world’s oceans.
At Mocean Fitness, we exist ‘to empower the environmentalist inside of everyone’, and we’re on a mission to create the most sustainable fitness community on the planet. That means not only creating the most environmentally impactful activewear, but also giving back to the right direct action charity partners, which is why we’re thrilled to be able to donate 10% of our net profits from all items sold from our Earth Collection to Sea Shepherd UK. We support Sea Shepherd UK because we believe that everything on this earth deserves to thrive, and that all life is dependent on the health of the oceans. We stand side by side with Sea Shepherd UK and are committed to protecting the oceans the best way we know how. We believe that through our partnership we can create healthy people, healthy oceans and a thriving home planet for all.
1% for the Planet is a global organization that exists to ensure our planet and future generations thrive. They inspire businesses and individuals to support Environmental Partners through membership and everyday actions. They make environmental giving easy and effective through partnership advising, impact storytelling and third-party certification.
They recognize that the current level of environmental giving – only 3% of total philanthropy – is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet.
That’s why through our business membership we pledge to donating 1% of annual sales to support environmental organizations focused on the environment. 1% for the Planet members have raised over $300 million to support approved Environmental Partners around the globe.
“Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, our members have given more than $175 million to environmental nonprofits to date. Today, 1% for the Planet is a network of more than 1,200 member businesses, a new and expanding core with hundreds of individual members, and thousands of nonprofit partners in more than 60 countries.

Mocean Fitness is proud to announce it’s partnership with Sharewear, a non-profit organisation based in Nottingham who provide clothes, shoes and bedding to people across the UK who find themselves in vulnerable situations or living in poverty.
Through the incredible work of the team at Sharewear, we are able to take one step closer towards achieving a circular economy in the sportswear industry by ensuring that your pre-loved Mocean Fitness activewear is provided with a second home when you’re finished with it. Either with another person in need, or for those items that are no longer fit to be worn, Sharewear will work with its recycling partner WARDrobe to ensure these items are put back into the system to be recycled as another product and not sent to landfill.
In practical terms, whenever you place an order with Mocean Fitness, we’ll provide you with the option to order a prepaid mailer for you to send your pre-loved activewear directly to Sharewear. No waste and at no cost to you or the planet.
This partnership means we can take crucial further steps towards combating clothing waste, clothing poverty, destructive, linear consumption, and creating a complete circular economy in the sportswear industry.
