If you’re an East Coast resident, like myself, it is the best time of the year- Summer at the shore! The salty air, the sandy toes, and the days in the sun are finally upon us. Before you search for the cutest beach apparel at the mall, you may want to check out three companies who are giving back. Sand cloud, Ocean Spirit, and Coastal Charm Tees are companies who offer the best of both worlds-cute affordable beach gear with a mission to help the big ole blue. Read on to learn about these rad companies, and to see my top picks from each shop!
Sand cloud https://www.sandcloudtowels.com
Sand cloud is a company based out of San Diego, California. This company creates a variety of trendy beach apparel, towels, and accessories. If you are a business nerd like yours truly, you may have seen this company on Shark Tank. Sand Cloud’s mission is to support the oceans by supporting a variety of organizations including Marine Conservation Institute, Surfrider Foundation, Pacific Marine Mammal Center, San Diego Coastkeeper, and the Hawaii Wildlife Fund.
I supported Sandcloud for over a year now. My top picks are the long sleeve tees and the Wanderlust Beach Towel XL. Perfect size for the beach! If you are looking to purchase something from Sandcloud, use the code RebeccaBa25 for 25% Off!
Ocean Spirit https://www.oceanspiritusa.com
Ocean Spirit is a company near and dear, because it is based out of NY and founded by two girls my age. This company offers trendy, unique pieces. These pieces are perfect for the summer but can be worn throughout the year. Ocean Spirit donates 5% of profits to Operation SPLASH. Operation SPLASH works to keep our waterways clean by identifying pollutants and removing debris. Let’s #seathechange by supporting Ocean Spirit.
If you are purchasing from Ocean Spirit, use code REBECCA10 for 10% off. My top pick is the new seaside dad hat. I also love the NY Tank Dress and the OS 3/4 Baseball tee!
Coastal Charm Tees www.coastalcharmtees.com
Coastal Charm Tees is based out of Virginia Beach and donates 10% off profits to coastal conservation and wildlife preservation through donations to charities and Surfrider Foundation. Coastal Charm Tees offers a preppy, nautical style with cute graphics. The pocketed tees really stand out amongst plain tee shirts this summer and combine graphics with unique fun sayings. Let’s #SaveOurBeaches by supporting Coastal Charm Tees.
My top picks are the Saltwater Pocketed Short Sleeve and the Board Meeting Tank Top.
