Give Gifts That Give Back!

Instead of the go-to holiday sweater, this season, we’re all about giving gifts that spread the holiday cheer beyond the yule log-eating contest. To make it easy for you to do the same, we came up with a list of gifts that keep on giving

gifts

1. A Surfrider Membership Tee
Give the gift of clean seas and steeze with a Surfrider Membership and tee combo plate. Both the givee and Mother Nature will score on this one. Shop Membership tees and the rest of the Surfrider Foundation Store HERE.

2. Kid Creature Tees
Look like a grom drew this tee to you? You’d be right on the money spot. His name is Calvin. Kid Creature is the brain child of said kid. The 11 year old artist and surfer created Kid Creature to help flight cystic fibrosis, donating 10% of sales profit to the cause. The designs are pure, true & capture the essence of a kid with a huge imagination and a gift of expression. Check out Kid Creature Tees HERE.

3. Jedidiah Movember Tees
Wear ‘em if you’ve got ‘em- or if you don’t. $5 from the sale of these special edition Movember tees goes to prostate cancer research. Get ‘em HERE.

4. Wellen Beanie
Top off your kit with a Wellen beanie that’s made in collaboration with Krochet Kids- a company that helps provide jobs to women in Uganda. Get it HERE.

The Shoe With No Footprint?

The Kustom Evolution Series: A Shoe With No Footprint

The folks at Kustom like life in the 21st century… the waves, the temperature…and want to keep it this way. Kustom’s Environmental Mission, or E-mission, is to produce footwear that aims to as gentle as it can be on Mother Nature. Products carrying the E-mission tag (view all E-mission styles HERE) are made from natural fabrics like hemp and cotton. Where glues are used they are water based, the laces are made from plastic bottles, and the insole boards, (under your feet) also contain recycled materials. A low-waste production technique pumps out the super-light soles and carbon offsets have been purchased too lessen the footprint of the design and manufacturing process. Is this a shoe with no environmental footprint … perhaps not yet. But Kustom’s ongoing E-mission is to continue to improve and work towards something better.
