Sand Cloud

August 16

Brand ambassador alert! Here is another post on a brand I love with an incredible mission and product. Sand Cloud sells towels, shirts, and other accessories that are available for purchase on their website at https://www.sandcloudtowels.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIxpqm5vvc1QIVkoZ-Ch2pEQkDEAAYASAAEgIKD_D_BwE. They were also seen on Shark Tank! Be sure to check out their Instagram and Facebook to see me featured in photos and ambassador videos!

Their Mission:

For one, their mission is to save marine life. 10% of profits are donated to non-profits that support their mission. Organizations they support include Marine Conservation Institute, Surfrider Foundation, Pacific marine Mammal Center, San Diego Coastkeeper, and Hawaii Wildlife Fund. If you’ve seen videos on social media of people releasing seals, turtles, etc. back into the ocean, that is most likely because of these organizations and Sand Cloud. Video’s can be found at this link: https://www.sandcloudtowels.com/blogs/videos

The Elephant Pants

August 16

A wonderful organization with an even more amazing cause. This brand popped up on the side of my Facebook one day in an advertisement so I decided to click on it and I am sure glad I did. You may recognize the name, well, that’s because The Elephant Pants were on Shark Tank! I want to tell you more about their cause and why I decided to partner with this brand.

Their Mission:

Their mission is “Save Elephants. Feel Good.” And that’s exactly what they do! The company was founded in 2014 where two friends saw the exploitation of elephants around the world and made a mission to help save them through producing pants. “Producing pants?” You might be questioning this in your head right now and be a little confused. These pants, shorts, and more apparel are the most comfortable and stylish items that you have ever worn with proceeds going to an amazing cause.

Why They Care:

I couldn’t say this any better than how they addressed it on their website so I’m just going to copy and paste their exact words for you to read. “It’s estimated that there were once 7-10 million African elephants roaming the African Continent while around 200,000 Asian elephants lived in the forests and grasslands of Southern Asia. Sadly, due to habitat loss and human conflict, both of these populations have dwindled severely. From 2010 to 2012 alone, an estimated 100,000 elephants were poached for ivory. That’s essentially one elephant loss every 15 minutes—a 50 percent decline in population in the past 35 years. There are roughly 470,000 African Elephants left in the wild and less than 40,000 Asian elephants. The high rate of elephant deaths combined with their incredibly long gestation period (22 months) could lead to a world without wild elephants by 2050. With people being the #1 cause of this steady population decline, we feel that it is our duty to do what we can to bring it to an end. Together, we can create a sustainable future where elephants thrive.”

How They Help

They partner with other organizations that share similar interests in saving and protecting elephants. Their current partner right now is “Tusk” that supports and connects the people providing the most promising solutions to the iris facing Africa’s wildlife.

I could go on and on about this brand and their mission to combat the exploitation of elephants, but I will let you explore their website for yourself. Be sure to buy some pants, shorts, tops, and more at this website- https://www.theelephantpants.com

Karma Bikinis

August 16

First I would like to thank Faeln for taking these photos and for letting me always drag her to the beach to do shoots. You are the greatest and most supportive friend girl.

Aren’t these swim suits the cutest and one of a kind?! Well to add to that, they are also comfortable and make me feel so confident. What’s even BETTER is that my friend Julienne Worring and her sister are the founders and creators of Karma Bikinis. But wait… it gets better. “Inspired by their combined passions for ocean conservation and the need for unique adjustable, fair trade pieces came our swimwear line with a commitment to donate 7% of all proceeds to ocean conservation efforts,” is read from their “About” article on their website. So not only are the bikinis unique, comfortable, stylist, but the proceeds are also donated to help ocean conservation.

Julienne reached out and asked me if I’d like to be a brand ambassador and I replied with a YES in a heartbeat. Brands like these that truly care about their clients and also think about giving back to organizations in need are the one’s I love to partner with. I mean how could you not?!
