Only 1 in 1,000 sea turtle hatchlings survive to adulthood. In an effort to save the hatchlings, ECO SWIM by Aqua Green—a SWIM USA company of sustainable swimwear, crafted from eco-friendly materials—teamed up with retailer ziggie and the Endangered Species Coalition to raise money to assist in this worthwhile mission. A percentage of ECO SWIM sales on ziggie.com from July 11-17 were donated to the cause, helping to carry out sea turtle protection and recovery programs, as well as support free educational training and restoration of nesting habitats.
“We are proud to partner with companies like ziggie, who promote ethical brands and support environmental causes,” said Sandra Davidoff, director of corporate marketing and public relations at SWIM USA. “We are thrilled to have been able to help in this initiative.”
The swimwear company has also worked with other retail partners and community volunteers to rid beaches and waterways across the country of more than 5 tons of trash and debris.
ECO SWIM by Aqua Green, whose mission is to help make the world a cleaner and safer environment for future generations, represents quality fashion that can make a difference. For more information, visit ecoswim.com.
The Beach People Partner with The Great Barrier Reef Foundation
Sisters Emma Henderson and Victoria Beattie were born to beach. Having grown up around and on the sea in New South Wales, Australia, and inspired by their seaside lifestyle, they channeled their passion for creating beautiful products and founded The Beach People in 2013.
Their first product—round towels—sold out in just weeks of the company’s inception. Since then the line has evolved into collections for bedding, bath and beach. Products—which include beach bags and totes, cushions, towels, beach bundles (towels with complementing bags), towel carriers, beach carts, kids’ offerings and tableware—are made of the finest materials and built to last.
The Beach People has partnered with The Great Barrier Reef Foundation to help preserve the world’s largest coral reef system made by living organisms. Through this partnership, the company donates $5 from the sale of every original jute bag to The Great Barrier Reef Foundation, the only charity in the world dedicated to exclusively protecting the Great Barrier Reef through raising funds for scientific research. The Beach People also hosts global Beach Clean Up days. For more information, visit thebeachpeopleco.com.
