Happy August, Do Good Swimwear Fam!
We hope everyone has been having a fun summer so far! We thought we'd take a moment to say THANK YOU to everyone who has been supporting us and our mission. It truly means the world!
Because of you, we can continue to create beautiful sustainable pieces for you all and continue contributing to causes that support the vision of helping the Earth heal and helping people in need.
Without further ado, here are the causes you helped support in quarter 3!
QUARTER 3 UPDATES:
1. Trees for The Future: This amazing organization has planted over 65 million trees worldwide in 30 countries and has served over 11,000 villages around the world. Trees for the Future provides free distance and agroforestry training and education; works in conjunction with over 53 specialists who are experts in agroforestry, community development, sustainable agriculture, women in development and youth education, land use, livestock management, provides in-country seed distribution, and; works on natural resource management.
2. Surfrider Foundation: We continue to support Surfrider Foundation, which is a U.S. 501 grassroots non-profit environmental organization that works to protect and preserve the world's oceans, waves and beaches. It focuses on water quality, beach access, beach and surf spot preservation, and sustaining marine and coastal ecosystems.
3. Coral Gardeners: Coral Gardeners grows and plants resilient corals to help restore dying reefs and bring life back to the ocean, which is often disturbed by humans! Fun fact: Fiji's coral gardeners, who are fishermen trained by biologists, collect small corals that are struggling to grow because they have little space, and bring them to a raised platform that gets good sunlight, nutrients, food and is a good temperature—kind of like a coral greenhouse. You can sponsor a coral(s) to help their efforts!
4. Girls Inc.: A nonprofit near and dear to us (we used to volunteer for this nonprofit in college!), Girls Inc. focuses on "the development of the whole girl. She learns to value herself, take risks, and discover and develop her inherent strengths. The combination of long-lasting mentoring relationships, a pro-girl environment, and evidence-based programming equips girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers, and grow up healthy, educated, and independent. Informed by girls and their families, we also advocate for legislation and policies to increase opportunities and rights for all girls."
Look at you, buying cute sustainable suits and contributing to the Earth and helping people and all that. WE LOVE IT!
NEW IN SHOP:
As for us, summer has been a blast, and we have been working on some new designs for you all. We've definitely run into a few delays/ hiccups along the way with sourcing our materials, getting our designs and prints just right, and dealing with some misprint mishaps, but we are so excited to be able to have released our super cute surf collab tees with @michipichel (pictured below), a few new suits (check out @myworldaspauline rocking our new Julia x Josie set skating around Venice Beach!), restocked some of our super popular pieces (hello again, Wild Child and Jackie suits!), and even had time to work on one last launch for the year coming in September full of retro vibes and even a matching mama and littles swim set!
