Stingray is so much more than just another sports brand. It was born out of a deep passion for the ocean and would not be here without it. We all enjoy our beautiful oceans, and Stingray believe it’s our duty as a brand to give back and help preserve the incredibly diverse playground we all enjoy.
Stingray donates 5% of every sale through this website directly to a marine life conservation charity. Customers can get involved and choose their favorite charity from the list of 4 Stingray designated non-profits, or we divide the contribution equally. Within 1-month 5% of your purchase will be actively working to do some good!
The only exception is the Navy SEALs collection where 10% of every sale goes directly to the Navy SEAL Foundation rather than an ocean conservation charity.
Stingray currently supports The Ocean Conservancy and the Coral Reef Alliance, which are global non-profits that already have a significant impact in many countries across the world. They work hard through politics and science to deliver long lasting change. The Save The Manatee Club is more relevant to Florida where Stingray was born. They help in the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of manatee, a species which is in rapid decline. Finally, the Seabird Sanctuary is a small Tampa Bay charity that rescues seabirds and conducts surgeries for common ailments such as broken wings and fishhook ingestion.
Going one step further from the 5% donation, Stingray's employees spend 2 paid work days per year cleaning up the Tampa Bay beaches. We encourage volunteers to attend and everyone gets a free Stingray gift! Follow our Facebook page to find out about the next cleanup. In addition, we are also expanding our drop shipping services with large retailers to reduce carbon emissions, using recycled cardboard boxes for our shipping packaging, and working to develop prototype inflatable paddle boards and wetsuits using recycled PVC and neoprene.
The ocean’s heartbeat is at the core of every Stingray product. Thank you so much for supporting Stingray and the Ocean's Heartbeat initiative. You are directly helping!
