Maris Pearl Co was founded on the idea of celebrating our ancient connection to the ocean by making an impact through the sale of our natural pearls. From our very first sale, we donated a percentage of our revenue to international organizations dedicated to the conservation and stewardship of our world's oceans.
It is a Maris family tradition to give back to our ancestral island of Andros, Greece. It began with my grandparents, who founded a school for the island's children that my family still supports today. Maris Pearl Co. is fulfilling a lifelong dream by allowing me to continue this tradition of philanthropy.
In 2019, we announced our official partnership with Athens-based NGO Aegean Rebreath. Aegean Rebreath was founded with the primary goal of helping Greek seas breathe again through the collection, recycling and upcycling of marine litter.
Maris Pearl Co is proud to pledge 5% of our total profits to support Aegean Rebreath's initiatives on Andros. We are also pleased to donate 50% of the profits from every sale of our signature net bag to this deserving cause.
We are so grateful to our muses for your continued support as we dream and grow. Please check this page often for news from our #pearlarmy as we find new ways to steward our precious oceans.
