Our mission is to be a positive steward of the environment and promote the conservation of the world's marine ecosystems and the living things that depend on it. We are proud to partner with other companies and nonprofits that share our commitment to marine conservation. Read more about our friends and how you can support them below.
Reef Relief®, a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to improving and protecting our coral reef ecosystem, is our steadfast partner. We believe in their mission so much that a portion of each Grateful Diver purchase goes to their efforts to save the coral reef. Reef Relief uses rigorous science to educate the public & advocate policymakers to achieve conservation, protection, and restoration of the coral reef. They also increase community-based efforts to protect coral reef ecosystems and encourage and support eco-tourism as part of sustainable community development that protects and preserves coral reef ecosystems.
We partner with Heritage Farmed™ on our Grateful Diver Skin Care line. Heritage Farmed uses the highest quality organic, organically-grown, and wildcrafted (harvested from Nature) botanical ingredients to make effective medicinal plant-based body care, aromatherapy, and wellness treatments that embrace the healing spirit and medicinal properties of the plants. In addition, Heritage Farmed donates a portion of its sales to non-profit organizations and campaigns that benefit social and environmental causes.
1% FOR THE PLANET
1% for the Planet represents a global network of businesses, individuals, and nonprofits tackling our planet's most pressing environmental issues. It started in 2002 when two businessmen, Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, bonded over their shared love for the outdoors. Realizing their responsibility to protect our planet, they pledged to give 1% of their sales back to the environment—whether or not they were profitable. Since then, more than 5,000 members, including Grateful Diver, have joined this mission to protect the future of our planet.

JACK'S DIVING LOCKER
Jack’s Diving Locker's mission is to share Hawaii’s underwater world, with a focus on friendship, a spirit of adventure, and a commitment to safety, the environment, and our community. Jack's opened on August 1, 1981 in Kona, Hawaii. In the late 1980’s, Jerry Garcia, lead guitarist and vocalist of the Grateful Dead, came to Jack’s Diving Locker to scuba dive. With over 300 dives with Jack’s, Jerry was a regular and soon the other band members were certified there. It's a natural fit to sell Grateful Diver gear at Jack's Diving Locker.

Grateful Diver is excited to help finance Vidmylife Production's new film, With & Without A Coral Story. Told through the words of leading scientists, the film explores Stony Coral Tissue Loss disease and what life is like with and without coral reefs. From its controversial origins dating back to 2014 through today, scientists still battle to understand what this disease is and how to stop it. At the heart of the issue is human impact. Without large changes to everyday life and corporate cooperation we risk losing one of the most important animals on earth... coral. Give the trailer a quick watch here.
