The ocean is an amazingly diverse place, spanning from microscopic bacteria to the largest blue whale. For a long time, humanity viewed it as a place of infinite resources. In reality, many populations are declining at an alarming rate.
These threats become more urgent every day. If we don’t want to destroy our children’s legacy, we have to act. Mies paints animals to show people how beautiful nature is, so we feel the importance of its preservation. To spread the message further, she turned her attention to the oceans.

With your purchase from Mies to Go's Ocean Collection, you will contribute to a holistic approach to conserving marine life.
Kinder bundles the very best performing charities into one “United Action”. They’ve created a unique vetting framework which evaluates organisations on how well they are solving the problems we care about. When you buy Mies to Go products, you support this curated selection of charities tackling one cause from different angles: to save sea life as effectively as possible.
Researchers and experts agree on two things when it comes to saving marine life: the need for more research and the acceleration of policies in favor of ocean conservation. This means, to address the root causes, we’ll need novel research and interdisciplinary problem-solving.
But saving the ocean's biodiversity requires global commitment. Increased public awareness, alongside targeted lobbying and advocacy, will put much-needed pressure on governments to make changes, fast.
Mies to Go is donating 20% of her Ocean Collection’s revenue to the people making this happen: Join her!
Donate to this United Action to make your money as effective as possible. Our research team rigorously evaluates each charity, and curates collections of the top performing among them, so you can tackle the same urgent problem with different solutions.
