Our Ocean Awareness Collection - Set of 5 Ocean Gift Cards
We created this unique and meaningful project in a bid to raise much needed funds to support our marine life and the valuable conservation work that happens in Australia every day. We hope that these ocean inspired designs help our worldwide community to make conscious and informed decisions about their waste and lifestyle choices. Our earth is made up of 71% water and without our oceans and sea creatures, we'd be lost!
50% of the profits from these cards will be going directly to Australian based ocean charity, Balu Blue Foundation and the other 50% of the profits will be going towards the Sophia. rubbish cleaning events that happen frequently across Brisbane, Australia and the world!
The inspiration behind our ocean awareness project...
We don't want another day to pass where the Sophia. community is left in the dark about the gut wrenching things that our earth faces every single day and the impact that each of our decisions has. This Ocean Gift Card Collection is our way of spreading awareness through creativity while simultaneously raising essential funds for the restoration of our reefs, the protection of our marine life and waste clean ups both along the coastline and amongst the waves. Without conservation groups fighting for the protection of our oceans each and every day, they would be in an even worse state than they already are!

We choose this particular printing business for all our gift cards as we believe that supporting small and local business is extremely important and it also reduces carbon emissions due to shipping and delivery. Each ocean inspired design has been printed onto 100% recycled card and is hand folded. From there, we bundle each set and a corresponding envelope together with recycled copper wire in our trademark copper bow and set it aside until someone like you decides to come along and purchase a set while simultaneously supporting ocean conservation.
Eco-friendly shipping & packaging - From Sophia. to you...
We then use Sendle which is Australia’s first carbon neutral shipping company to send all our packages, parcels and envelopes. They ensure that all the emissions caused from deliveries are offset by supporting conservation projects both in Australia and around the world. On top of this positive environmental impact, 100% of the profits from this sale goes towards sustainable and ethical initiatives. 50% to Balu Blue Foundation who work tirelessly on ocean conservation and 50% towards our reforestation project to plant 500 native trees for Australian wildlife by the end of 2020.

I first came across these gorgeous cards on Instagram when Sophia. announced that they’d be launching soon and I was literally counting down the days until I could buy a set. They definitely haven’t disappointed!

About the Collection - Ocean Awareness
To make our impact reach further, the World Oceans Day Collection has been created using recycled and eco-friendly materials, all products are shipped carbon neutral and profits from the sales of these items are directly being reinvested into our ocean inspired mission to reduce plastic pollution and protect our precious marine life.
This gift card was created to represent all the weird, wonderful and unique marine life that we are endangering with our decisions. We threaten these precious species every day through the choices we make, the waste we create and the companies we support. Imagine a world without these beautiful lion fish and the one hundred thousand creatures that we lose each year due to pollution. The death toll is rising too fast for our liking and we're on a mission to do something about it! What actions and steps can you take today to make a real and positive difference?
JELLYFISH GIFT CARD
Ahh, the jellyfish... A creature of immense beauty and a vital part of the eco-system but so often replaced by the infamous plastic bags inside turtles stomachs. This intricate drawing represents the deepest, darkest parts of our oceans and the things that lurk below, which unfortunately aren't always sea creatures. It is estimated that by the year 2050, there will be more plastic in the sea than fish and we want to the profits from these gift cards to turn that statistic around. It's not too late to make a difference and we want our oceans to flourish with marine life once again!
SWIMMER CRAB GIFT CARD
The humble swimmer crab design represents our coastlines and beaches and where our man-made impact begins. Our sandy shores are where our plastic waste seeps into the ocean and gets dragged out by the crashing waves. The many species of crabs are one of the links between land and sea and we wanted to capture the unique relationship that they have with the ocean. We hope that this design inspires you to stop and think about the impact you have when travelling to the beach and how you can help protect the future of our seas and marine life.
SEAHORSE GIFT CARD
There is a famous photo of a seahorse clinging for dear life onto a plastic cotton bud, obviously mistaking it for a piece of coral. It's no secret that our sea beds are suffering and our precious corals are dying from human greed. Many things affect the death of our reefs and we want this seahorse design to remind everyone that we need to do something NOW, before it's too late. Coral mining, pollution, toxic sunscreens, oil spills, overfishing, and the digging of canals are amongst the few things destroying our reefs and ALL of them are avoidable. Let's stand up and make a change!
TURTLE GIFT CARD
This intricate design represents the ocean life that is affected by our plastic waste. While 100,000 marine animals and sea birds die each year from our rubbish, turtles are usually in the forefront of the media with plastic straws being ripped from their noses and plastic bags suffocating their stomachs. We'd like to educate the community into making more conscious decisions about the foods they're consuming and the waste they're creating. Simple and effective changes CAN be made in your day to day life and you can become a vital piece in the puzzle to help clear our tides.
