Cause Marketing Partnerships

Today more than ever, consumers look for products that not only meet their immediate needs, but give back to the community too.

According to Cone Communications, 85 percent of consumers have a more positive image of a product or company when it supports a cause they care about. Environmental causes are among the leading issues that consumers think companies should address.

At Ocean Conservancy, we customize our partnerships with unique messaging and activation methods that best meet your company’s objectives and ensure that your company stands out as a leader in supporting ocean conservation. Benefits vary and may include:

  • Posts on Ocean Conservancy’s Facebook page and Twitter feed
  • Corporate profile in “Splash,” Ocean Conservancy’s quarterly newsletter
  • Buckslip inserts in membership renewal and acquisition mailings
  • Video posts on Ocean Conservancy’s YouTube channel

  • Media opportunities with Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup

Ocean Conservancy partners with companies on cause-related marketing agreements to help build awareness and raise funds for our work to protect the ocean. These partnerships give the companies’ customers the opportunity to engage in our work and support Ocean Conservancy’s conservation goals.

Donations received from these partnerships enable us to effectively champion science-based solutions that keep our ocean clean and healthy for future generations.

Landshark Lager

Since 2011, Ocean Conservancy and Landshark Lager have partnered to help keep our ocean clean and healthy. Highlights of this multi-year partnership include the Fin-tastic Voyage, a series of beach cleanups up and down the East Coast paired with fun beach activities and paddleboarding events to show that having fun at the beach also means protecting it, and the Tortuga Music Festival, where together we inspired concert attendees to remove a bag of trash in return for a free customized t-shirt.
