Every Purchase Directly Contributes to Creating a More Sustainable Planet 🌎
3D Tech Labs is committed to having a positive impact on our planet by building a more sustainable tomorrow. For that reason, we are extremely proud of our commitment to donate 5% of all company annual profits to The Ocean Cleanup, a non-profit organization developing advanced technologies to rid the oceans of plastic. We're grateful for customers like you that are helping clean up our oceans with every purchase on our site!
3D Tech Labs chose The Ocean Cleanup as the recipient of the donations because of their innovative solutions to one of the biggest environmental issues of our time, plastic pollution, which is not only destroying precious ecosystems on our planet, but is also the cause of serious health issues for hundreds of species, including humans.

Another way to support The Ocean Cleanup's operations is to buy The Ocean Cleanup's Sunglasses, their first product made with plastic certified to have originated from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (the name that was given to a collection of marine debris in the North Pacific Ocean).
With the proceeds of the sale of just ONE pair of sunglasses, they estimate that they can clean an area equivalent to 24 football fields of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. If they sell every pair, they could clean half a million football fields worth of ocean.
Their website states that 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these sunglasses will go directly to continued cleanup operations. And, as an extra perk, all of their sunglasses ship free!
Are donations to The Ocean Cleanup tax deductible?
Per The Ocean Cleanup's FAQs, they have a registered foundation in the Netherlands (Stichting The Ocean Cleanup) and in the US (The Ocean Cleanup North Pacific Foundation), and donations from within these countries can be tax deductible. The Ocean Cleanup North Pacific Foundation is a public charity, exempt from income tax under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c)(3).
If you donate through their website form, you will receive an automated receipt. For more information, please visit any of The Ocean Cleanup's pages linked above.
