OUR STORY

We established “Saltwater Tribe” – a locally owned business in Queensland – in 2017. Our vision is to offer a thoughtfully selected products that are ocean inspired & promote sustainable living. We collaborate only with local artists & companies with shared values. Our promise is to donate 5% of our profit to Tangaroa Blue Foundation to help with their mission of tackling marine debris and educating future generations.

We believe in a ‘stronger together’ world. A place where small businesses are supported, upcoming artist given the chance to be seen, organisations be heard and voices raised in the fight against marine debris. We recognise that it is important in life to feel like you belong and to identify with a group. The name Saltwater Tribe was chosen for that very reason: we are building our brand to connect ocean lovers together and with the ocean.

We pride ourselves on delivering a friendly and professional service so we hope you have an enjoyable shopping experience and learn a little more about the ocean and its magnificent contribution to our lives along the way.

After all, we are a Shop with Purpose!

GIVING BACK

SUPPORTING MARINE CONSERVATION

Our business was in part established as a means to generate funds to help tackle one of the biggest current global environmental issues: Marine Debris.

We’re passionate about the ocean and its incredibly diverse inhabitants and want to help safeguard it for future generations. This is why we are thrilled to support and promote the incredible work carried out by the Tangaroa Blue Foundation, an Australian-wide, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the removal and prevention of marine debris. We will be donating 5% of our profits to Tangaroa Blue to help with their mission of tackling marine debris and educating future generations.

As we grow, we will look to increase the percentage of profit donated to marine conservation.

A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.
