#SustainableSunday with Aloha for People...

Sunday, March 17, 2019

It's not every day that you get to photoshoot with the love of your life, but today was one of those days.  SunStars and I have a thrilling announcement (stay tuned on Wednesday for more on that) and we are also thrilled to have teamed up to introduce y'all to another groovy new fair trade brand: Aloha for People.

This California-based company has set out with the mission to provide clean water and jobs to people in Guatemala, Hawaii, and Nepal.  How do they do this, you ask? They've created a range of super beachy organic cotton and hand woven threads, surf board bags, scarves, and surf fins.  The purchase of any item in their shop generates enough proceeds to provide at least one child in Guatemala (if not up to 10 children) access to 2 years of clean water.  

SunStars and I were feeling super groovy in our new Aloha duds with this sweet tie dye wall.  His new tee is made from 50% organic cotton and 50% recycled plastic bottles and the proceeds from this specific tee help provide access to clean ocean water in partnership with the Surfrider Foundation.  My Night Sky top was hand-woven in Guatemala from 100% cotton and provides 2 children in Guatemala with access to clean drinking water for 2 years each. 

What's sustainable about these outfits?
