Get In The Summer Spirit With These Beach-Friendly OOTD! …And More Reasons To Love REEF!

Summer is officially in! With the scorching weather, we can’t help but dream of freeing our feet in the sand and getting our beach on! Seriously. There is no better way to step into the summer vibe than by doing it responsibly without sacrificing style and comfort. Here are reasons why REEF is your beachwear of choice and why Beach Freely should be your 2019 summer mantra!

1. Beach Freely: REEF encourages everyone to embrace the fun, freedom, and the spirit of the beach on your own terms and take that spirit with you wherever you walk!

The beach may be synonymous to summer, but it means differently to everyone. It could be a family playground, an athlete’s training space, a sunbathing spot, or even a date place! In any case, we’ve got your OOTD covered! There’s a wide variety of shoes, sandals, apparel, and accessories for every traveler, surfer, and beachgoer!

2. 220,128 pounds. That’s how much trash the eco-loving brand has removed from beaches globally in 2018.

Everybody loves the ocean and of course, what do you do with someone or something you love? You take care of it! REEF believes in the connection between a person’s well-being and the beach. Restoring the beach from harmful pollutants essentially creates a clean and beautiful place to restore ourselves!

3. 31,176 volunteers. That’s how much people they have encouraged to take part in 861 beach cleanups organized last year! If that’s not making big waves, I don’t know what is! This year, REEF pledges to improve worldwide impact to 2,450 beach cleanups and tripling the volunteer count to 90,000.

4. 1,000 kids. REEF supports Urban Surf 4 Kids and has been a passionate partner since 2016. The partnership has produced 7 Surf therapy camps that included over 80 disadvantaged youth. This also includes the Hanai and Camp Ohana programs that pair mentors with foster kids for one-on-one support taking them on a recreational ocean adventure for the first time.

They are also a proud long-term partner of the Rob Machado Foundation that educates and empowers the youth to make sustainable choices for life. They have funded water filtration stations in public schools and encourages reusable bottles over single-use plastic.

5. Earth-friendly plastic. You read that right! There is such a thing as earth-friendly plastic and REEF has it! The brand uses Eco-One enhanced biodegradability in some of their products! That means these items can be recaptured and used as sustainable energy source! Other products include PVC-free sandals and even board shorts made of recycled microfibers!

I could go on and on about why REEF is for shore (sea what I did there?) the coolest but these are more than enough reasons to get you in the Beach Freely mindset! It spans from enjoying the beach in your own way, but also actively promoting preservation and protecting the place we all come for refreshing our senses! So, water you waiting for? Beach Freely with REEF this summer!
