Help Us Clean up Canada's Coasts!

Posted on 04 June 2019

FREEDIVER: Triton Down launched last week to wonderful response from the VR community, and we couldn't be more grateful. Now we're paying it forward, and using this opportunity to give back!

In honour of #WorldOceansDay, we're kicking off a campaign to raise funds for the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. Founded in 2002, this national conservation program strives to keep Canada's shoreline ecosystems healthy, and relies on nearly 800,000 volunteers to carry out regular trash cleanups across the country. That's more than 1.3 million kilograms of trash removed from our beaches over nearly two decades, and we couldn't be more excited to participate!

How are we helping? Starting today, we will be pledging 50 cents for every like/retweet/share that these [Twitter/Facebook] social media posts receive, as well as one dollar for every copy of FREEDIVER: Triton Down sold over the next few days. If you were thinking of adding FREEDIVER to your VR library, now is the time to take the plunge!

Not only that, we'll be rolling up our sleeves and hitting the Vancouver beaches for our very own cleanup later this summer. (We're going out trash-collecting rain or shine, so expect some very candid photos from the adventure!) FREEDIVER wouldn't exist if it wasn't for our beautiful and inspiring oceans, so we're doing our part to make sure it stays beautiful and healthy for generations to come. 

If you're looking to get active yourself, you can help by sharing our social posts, encouraging your friends to do the same, donating to the GCSC organisation directly, or even organising a clean up of your own! No matter what, we're so thankful for your support, and can't wait to get pledging!
