Give Twice! Island Pursuit is proud to carry so many brands doing so many wonderful things to give back! We've assembled some gift ideas for you from companies that give back in one way or another. Here is a sampling of how these companies give back. When you purchase their products, you're also giving back so Shop with Purpose and Give Twice!
4Ocean: Attention all water lovers! 4Ocean is a Ft. Lauderdale based company who funds their mission of removing plastic waste from the Atlantic Ocean through the sale of their bracelets made of recycled plastic! Every bracelet represents 1 lb. of plastic removed from the ocean.
Prana: Prana is committed to the environment and fair trade practices. They use sustainable fibers such as organic cotton and hemp as well as recycled polyester and wool in the making of their clothing. They also work with factories that are Fair Trade Certified which means that the work conditions are better and the compensation is higher. The increase in compensation means that these workers can invest in their local communities. When you purchase Prana, you are helping factory workers succeed in third world countries as well as reducing the amount of waste being generated.
Southern Tide: Southern Tide has a strong partnership with OCEARCH, Shark Tracking Research and Education. Each year, they made a donation to OCEARCH. In addition to that, they have created a whole line of OCEARCH products and donate 10% of their OCEARCH branded items to the OCEARCH organization. If you have an ocean lover on your holiday list, you can feel good about purchasing Southern Tide knowing that every Southern Tide purchase goes to supporting this great research.
TOMS Shoes: TOMS donates a pair of shoes to a needy child for every pair of shoes sold. One-for-One.
