Organisations We Support
I AM WATER FOUNDATION
I AM WATER believes in ocean conservation through transformative ocean experience.
Their mission is to ignite a movement of blue minds across the planet, to facilitate physical and emotional connections to the aquatic environment, to build an understanding of the interdependence of healthy humans and healthy oceans, and to influence behaviours to protect our global seas.
They are especially passionate about working with underprivileged coastal communities where, despite living within walking distance of the shoreline, they often find young people who have never seen the world just beneath the waves.
5% of all profits from our discontinued collection ‘Ode to the Ocean’ collection went to I AM WATER. We will be announcing our next collaboration with them in the near future, so watch this space.

THE JULIET CREW
The Juliet Crew is an all-female firefighting crew in the Western Cape.
Currently women are not adequately represented in this sector globally with many people still believing that firefighting is not a suitable occupation for women.
The ultimate goal for Juliet Crew is not to continue being the only all-female crew indefinitely, but rather to show that women have a place at the fire. That goal will only be reached when they are no longer labelled as women-firefighters, but simply firefighters.
5% of all profits from the ‘JUNO’ and ‘of Earth’ collections goes to The Juliet Crew.
