Together we make the difference
MOAI donates an amount of money to the WWF every year. We are happy to support the WWF’s projects to protect the ocean. Two thirds of our earth consists of the ocean. Unfortunately, our ocean is becoming increasingly polluted and overfished. As water sports enthusiasts, we love to do our bit to keep the oceans clean and protect nature and marine life by supporting the World Wildlife Fund in reaching their goals. We are convinced that the ocean and aquatic life should not suffer from mishandling the ocean.
The biggest threats for the ocean are overfishing, bycatch, fishing techniques, pollution, plastic soup and climate change. The WWF is trying to protect the ocean by protecting sea areas, making agreements on sustainable fishing, stopping plastic pollution, planting mangroves and growing coral. With this, the World Wildlife Fund want to achieve the following goals:
- By 2030, 30% of the areas that we protect from WWF-NL will be well managed by a sustainable approach.
- By 2030, sustainable fishing will be implemented in 30% of the areas we focus on from WWF-NL. This ensures food security, reduced pressure on animal species at the top of the food chain, sustainable solutions for companies, and reduction of the plastic problem.
Support women with breast cancer
With the MOAI women’s paddle board, MOAI supports the great work of Pink Ribbon. 1 in 7 women will develop breast cancer. Pink Ribbon is committed to a better life for breast cancer patients in all phases of the disease. By raising money, Pink Ribbon finances research into the treatment, aftercare and long-term effects of breast cancer. With every purchase of our pink women’s board we donate money to Pink Ribbon. Together we stand (up) for a better world and a better life for breast cancer patients.
Pink Ribbon has been committed to fighting breast cancer since 2003. Since 2016, Pink Ribbon has been part of the Dutch Cancer Society KWF. Together they are committed to reducing cancer and getting it under control. Pink Ribbon finances projects and research in the field of treatment, aftercare and long-term effects of breast cancer. With the aim of a better and longer life for (ex) breast cancer patients.
Plastic Whale Foundation
Together we fight for plastic-free waters
Plastic soup is a world wide growing problem. Plastic waste pollutes the world’s waters, causing animals in and around the water to become entangled or even suffocate in the plastic waste. Because the fish swallow that plastic, we end up getting it back on our plates. The Plastic Whale Foundation is engaged in fishing waste from the water. MOAI sponsors the Plastic Whale Foundation with a logo on one of the boats. With this we want to support the Plastic Whale Foundation in the removal of plastic waste in the waters.
Plastic Whale Foundation fights for plastic-free waters. They create social awareness for the problem and take action with as many people as possible by fishing plastic. For example, the Plastic Whale Foundation organizes public events that are free for everyone. Boat or no boat, everyone can participate. But above all they want to involve the youth through their school program. The Plastic Whale Foundation is currently active in the waters in Amsterdam and Rotterdam, but has the ambition to eventually operate worldwide.
