HOW DO WE CHOOSE A CHARITY
We Donate $2.00 USD from every Sale of a Sea Turtle Necklace or Sea Turtle Bracelet and any Sale from our shop to the TSA. Donations are sent Directly from UGGLUG.com to the Charity Platform on behalf of the TSA on transaction date, to Ensure full Transparency as claims of Charity require Clarity.In addition we have recently Partnered with an additional Non Profit Organization Seeturtles.org who is active worldwide in protecting and nurturing Sea Turtle Hatchling by hiring locals in the various native habitats to protect the vulnerable Hatchings. From protection of the mothers nesting areas to birth and their first ocean swim. We are very impressed with this boots on the ground approach which has and continues to have great success.
After Thoroughly reviewing all the very worthy charities, we felt the diversity and Global reach in efforts of Preservation, Breeding and Research the TURTLE SURVIVAL ALLIANCE and SeeTurtles.org being reputable proven registered non profits checked all the boxes as a great partners and relationships.
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR MERCHANDISE:
We buy large volume directly from the Manufacturers that may make top brand labels as well as generic brands in the same manufacturing facility we deal with with no middleman. You Pay approx $3.00 more than we pay for a product to cover our donation commitments and operating expenses.
We also wholesale to many other sites in which you will see the exact same product with much higher pricing than ours. The reason for this is they pay what you pay and need to inflate costs to make a profit.
WHY ARE PRICES SO LOW:
So we gather as in most industries many manufacturers produce premium brand labels as well as generics from the same location. And premium brands demand more of your hard earned money as you can see they use Expensive Advertising in which these costs are carried on to you the purchaser.
Not in our shop, we are currently operating at very slim margins after expenses by an Organic Growth rate and as such can charge based on volume rather than advertising expenses. Accordingly and we cannot afford to pay advertising costs of $3.00 per click regardless if they purchase or not and continue to maintain our pricing.
WHY NOT CHARGE MORE:
Our Mission is to Operate cover expenses and meet our donation objectives, this is the objective of UGGLUG,COM and we have no plans to amend our business plan.We make sure we allow buyers to choose their own style at a fair price and hey that's what it's all about a nice necklace or bracelet and help out a Turtle.
SO DO YOU MAKE MONEY ON SHIPPING LIKE OTHER SITES:
That's another easy answer NO selling Worldwide is expensive however we source the most frugal shipping sources to keep pricing affordable,and do not profit on shipping.
The United States and Canada are absolutely Essential to our Donation forecast and therefore our profit margins are close to break even in United States and Canada as SHIPPING IS FREE at our cost to ensure our continued growth in sales to in return achieve our $100,000 Donation Milestone.
IS YOUR SITE SECURE:
Peace & Love to all Our Customers and Friends.
