OUR MISSION IS TO BE YOUR FRIEND AND PARTNER ON A MISSION
WHO IS UGGLUG ?
Ugglug.com has been online since 2012 as an educational platform for teaching Children and Teachers the eco system and the effects of human activity. Which contributes greatly to the Sea Turtle and entire marine population decline. So rest assured in our new mission we are not going anywhere soon and our work is our passion we are truly blessed.
We are a group of students who had learned a great deal of wealth regarding the Marine Eco System and all creatures who rely on its health. Our interest in the majestic Sea Turtle encouraged us to procure sponsors to assist us in our Project Named "Turtle Mission". Our Goal $100,000 in donations to Survival of Endangered Turtle Species.

HOW DO WE CHOOSE A CHARITY
We Donate $2.00 USD from every Sale of a Sea Turtle Necklace or Sea Turtle Bracelet 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.
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 being a registered non profit checked all the boxes as a great partner and relationship.
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR MERCHANDISE:
We start with an RFP request for proposal and it is sent to industry contacts that may make top brand labels as well as generic brands in the same manufacturing facility.
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.
AFTER WE RECEIVE OUR REPLIES TO OUR RFP:
We then review the materials for like kind in areas of durability ,material,fashion sense, and reception of a broad market.
If we bought everything we loved there would be a crazy selection so we make sure we allow buyers to choose their own style and hey that's what it's all about a nice necklace or bracelet and help out a Turtle.
HOW DO WE KNOW PEOPLE WILL LIKE A PRODUCT:
We are given wholesalers contacts who are currently selling the products in our RFP and we receive preferred vendors information.
Upon contacting the vendors and reviewing their feedback more importantly we use you the buyers as our gauge.
HOW DO YOU DECIDE IF WE LIKE IT :
We only list items which have sold 200 units or more and take the 3rd party verified ranking statistics and come to the final step prior to purchasing.
If a product has sold 200 units and has a minimum 50 reviews from verified buyers and has an overall rating of 5 stars then we are satisfied the product is what the purchasers like.
WHY ARE PRICES SO LOW:
That's an easy one our markup or profit margin is fractions on the dollar and we solely get by on volume to maintain our low prices. We believe in the spread the word campaigns rather than spending on advertising which as we all know the cost is carried on to the buyer.So please follow us on Instagram if you enjoy our shop.
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:
Yes it certainly is Refer to our Privacy Statement
Peace & Love to all Our Customers and Friends.
