The Overboard Difference
Make a Splash
Unlike other companies that make promises of good deeds following a purchase or donate a minimal amount of money for each product sold, Michigan Overboard donates an unparalleled 21% of annual profits towards water conservation efforts right here in Michigan!
In Michigan, lakes, rivers and streams are more than just bodies of water. They are the foundation of our state's livelihood and the source of our identity. While being the ultimate provider of life, our water also acts as a teacher, therapist & adventure buddy to all those that live and visit here!
The largest collection of surface fresh water on the planet is in our backyard. The Great Lakes Basin plays a key role in global climate and provides drinking water to over 40 million people. We have an obligation to lead the charge in protecting this natural wonder for current and future generations.
Small business. Big impact.
Keeping Michigan Pure
Michigan Overboard was built on the foundation of giving back. Our homegrown business model focuses on what matters; creating an eco-friendly company, building a brand that proudly represents our state and setting the standard for charitable donations among local businesses. From top to bottom, we want to do everything the right way. We retail only USA made goods and only use reused or recyclable packaging and shipping supplies. We keep our footprint small and our donation large. That's the overboard difference.
