National Marine Sanctuary Foundation and Au Naturale Cosmetics Announce Earth Month Partnership
10% of proceeds in April support conservation in national marine sanctuaries
Today, the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation and Au Naturale Cosmetics announce a new partnership. Ten percent of proceeds from Au Naturale Cosmetics’ Living Coral Collection will help the Foundation support conservation, education, and community engagement in America’s National Marine Sanctuary System, a network of 14 protected sites spanning from American Samoa to the Florida Keys, and from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes.
The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation is the non-profit partner to the National Marine Sanctuary System and a leading voice for U.S. protected waters, working with communities to conserve and expand these special places for a healthy ocean, coasts, and Great Lakes. The Foundation focuses on engaging communities and businesses in stewardship projects that protect the environment and the species that call sanctuaries home. Projects include partnering with dive shops to clean up underwater marine debris and protect corals in the Florida Keys, working with volunteers in Monterey Bay to improve water quality for residents and marine life, and educating the next generation of Ocean Guardian in schools across the U.S.
“We are excited to partner with Au Naturale during Earth Month to celebrate the beauty of coral and their importance to our ocean,” said Kris Sarri, President and CEO of the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation. “Their mission to sustainably source products inspires all of us to think about the role we play in conserving our beautiful planet and how we each can take action to make a difference.”
Au Naturale’s Founder and CEO, Ashley Prange, started the company with the mission to build a cosmetics brand around exclusively healthy, natural and ethically sourced ingredients. In 2011, Prange began her e-commerce business, Au Naturale Cosmetics which has since evolved into both a brand & a cause responsible for starting a Clean Beauty Revolution all over the world.
“Au Naturale is proud to partner with the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation- together we create positive impact for our ocean that are desperately in need of our help! The vibrant colors of our sacred ocean are echoed in our organic color cosmetics to generate awareness and financial support that we hope empowers the good works of the Foundation.”
