Nudi Wear is not only concerned about limiting our impact on the environment, but we also want to help others who are making a positive impact.  That is why 10% of profits are donated towards ocean conservation.  Below are some of the ways we give back:

Nudi Wear donates 5% of all purchases to the Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL), a non-profit, environmental NGO that is on a mission to save the world’s coral reefs!

The biological diversity of the world’s coral reefs is unmatched with any other ecosystem on the planet. Even though they cover less than 1% of the ocean, they provide food, protection, and nurseries for almost 25% of marine species. People also depend on reefs for food, income, coastal protection, medicines, and more. However, coral reefs face many threats and action needs to be taken to prevent the decimation of our reefs before it is too late.

The Coral Reef Alliance collaborates with communities to reduce threats to the reef while providing a long term benefit to both the people and wildlife. They work to save the reefs in four critically-important reef regions of the world: Fiji, Hawaii, Indonesia, and the Mesoamerican Region. Their main initiatives are healthy fisheries for reefs, clean water for reefs, intact reef ecosystems, and science of adaptation. While Nudi Wear is proud to support the work of the Coral Reef Alliance, we are not directly affiliated with the nonprofit or any of their programs, projects, or website.

We have partnered with Project AWARE, a global nonprofit, that empowers thousands of divers in more than 180 countries to work together for a clean, healthy, and abundant ocean planet. A donation is made for every student diver who completes a course with us and they also receive a project AWARE limited edition card. This not only helps educate divers about ocean conservation but also supports Project AWARE’s mission to mobilize the world’s divers into a global force to protect the ocean one dive at a time. Visit Project AWARE’s website for more information.

We have adopted the dive site Point Panic on Oahu, Hawaii. We carry out monthly Dive Against Debris surveys, removing debris and reporting each month from the same location. These events not only help clean up our oceans but they also provide opportunities to educate and encourage others to make changes too. A small portion from our sales are used to provide the necessary resources for these events. Check out our blog to read about recent cleanups!

Nudi Wear regularly organizes beach cleanups on Oahu and neighboring islands. We have removed items ranging in size from tiny plastics that must be filtered from the sand to abandoned boats. This would not be possible without the dedicated volunteers of the Nudi Dive Club who are eager to lend a helping hand. A portion of our sales are used for the necessary resources to successfully conduct these cleanups. Visit our blog and upcoming events pages to learn more!
