An integrated, enthusiastic group of businesses investing in SeaLegacy’s mission to protect the world’s oceans
British Columbia, Canada, May 17, 2022 (GlobeNewsWire) – When the eight companies first met in May 2021, when they were not familiar with each other, they were bound only by a promise to protect our oceans and planets. Today, these founding members of The Good Ocean are actively supporting SeaLegacy’s commitment to maritime security.
“One of the most frequently asked questions is, ‘What can I do?'” Said Christina Mittermeyer, co-founder and president of SeaLegacy. “This question comes from individuals and it also comes from businesses. Increasingly, consumers are demanding that the products and services that support their purchasing power be linked to the desire to be responsible for their impact on the world. Members of The Good Ocean are addressing that demand and “Businesses are playing a vital role in conservation. Together, we are moving toward systematic change in our consumer culture, and our members are leading the way.”
SeaLegacy aligns with businesses that truly care about the oceans – and their impact on the planet, and actively focus on the growing consumer demand for accountability for how products are made, sold and marketed. The Good Ocean members make a minimum annual donation to SeaLegacy and aspire to meet and exceed the best practices of conservation throughout their supply chain and within their employment ecosystem and sign a membership commitment as part of the onboarding process. They are interested in learning, developing and implementing improvements to their suppliers, employees, consumers and therefore the planet and the oceans.
Over the past year, SeaLegacy has hosted two powerful virtual roundtables giving members of The Good Ocean a place to share knowledge, giving SeaLegacy leaders direct access as well as unique collaboration opportunities and access to peer groups who are constantly innovating and sustainable. Runs. Through the supply chain.

Ryan and Juliana Kissick of Good Poker Inc. have devoted an incredible amount of time and input to developing The Good Ocean. “It no longer makes sense for businesses to address environmental and social challenges on their own. There is a lot of work to be done and there is very little time, ”they say Good Poker Inc. is a high quality stationery business committed to removing plastic sleeves from all their greeting cards and actively working to remove plastic from their other departments. Good Poker Inc. recently won four Louis Awards, including the most prestigious, greeting card of the year from the Greeting Cards Association.
“When we see a business taking ESG issues seriously, it shouldn’t be a badge of honor,” says Kisix. “It should be the norm, and to be honest, we’re all facing the same challenge, so why not tackle it together? The Good Ocean enables businesses like ours to do so, along with an incredible group of transparent, dedicated, and thoughtful businesses and entrepreneurs.”
It is difficult to overstate the importance of bringing the ocean back to health and thus it is important to find serious partners to manage the resources.
“The Good Ocean is an excellent example of a platform for influence,” said Carolina Manhusen Schwab, president of the Ocean Burn Foundation. Ocean Beer is responding to calls from surfers to do something about dumping rubbish on otherwise primitive beaches, promising 100% of its profits at sea. “As part of SeaLegacy, a first-rate non-profit organization, the team is highly knowledgeable in all areas important to the ocean and provides members with tremendous access to up-to-date information to guide their actions and funding.”
