Happy December, everyone! Can you believe how quickly this year has gone by?! It's been a great year here at Do Good- we've been able to add a couple of wonderful humans to our small but mighty team, had a lot of fun trying out new designs and new printing techniques, learned a LOT about creating art work/ prints and ecofriendly printing on fabric, met some great new artists we can't wait to work with, figured out some sustainable solutions for our products, and did a lot of good this year with your support for some amazing non profits!
With your help, we were able to create waves of change by:
-Helping recycle tons of bottles and repurpose fish nets and other ocean waste by using ecofriendly materials that are made into those beautiful suits that you love!
-Contributed to nonprofit organizations like Surfrider, Coral Gardeners, Trees for the Future, Girls Inc., Groundswell, Feeding America and Tahanan Sta Luisa that help create a more sustainable future and a positive impact for the environment and community by planting trees, cleaning coastlines, planting coral and supporting numerous women and families in need.
-Used printing processes that saved on water and reduced waste
-Found a more local manufacturer to keep our carbon emissions to a minimum with shipping back and forth
-Collaborated with some amazing new female artists on beautiful designs (here's a sneak peek of some of our 2023 collection!):
-Hosted beach clean up events and food drives for communities in need
Lastly, we are now in talks with an organization that can help us close the loop and recycle your old swim! We will be working on implementing a recycling program with a discount/ reward system so that you all can send back suits you've grown tired of and receive rewards towards the shop. Woohoo!
TL, DR; We are still a small business with a big heart, and creating a positive impact in our communities and environment is what we strive for with each suit sold which you help with each time you order something from us. There would be no Do Good without YOU, so THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!
We are so grateful for each and every one of you, and can't wait to see what we can all do together to make more waves of change. Happy holidays, everyone!
