Nordic Naturals knows that as a producer of omega-3 fish oil, our presence is felt in the oceans where we source our fish, and the communities where we make and distribute our products. We see it as our responsibility to do right by the people and the places that are part of our success.

It’s with this in mind that we’ve chosen to sponsor 5 Gyres, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating people about keeping single-use plastics (straws, cups, bottles, and bags) out of our oceans.

Healthy oceans are vital to everyone’s survival. They produce the oxygen we breathe, the weather that sustains our waterways, and much of our food. The oceans are also the source of many of the essential nutrients we all need to stay healthy.

Because harmful micro-plastics and debris can end up in the fish we eat, keeping our oceans clean is important to all of us—even if we live nowhere near the coast. There are simple things we can all do to reduce the amount of plastic and Styrofoam we use every day. The less we use, the better chance we have of keeping it out of our oceans. Spread the word with us and inspire others to go #plasticfree and #foamfree!
