We started then a new routine.
We went to the beach as often as possible, at the end of the days.
To collect the colorful umbrellas from the trash, after they had been swiped by the relentless sea breeze. That summer hundreds of beach umbrellas were collected. We brought them back to the studio for laundry, and cutting, to create these fun looking pouches to accompany your trunk purchase.
A long story short, besides long, hot and very interesting, our Summer Gleaning was extremely productive. Also, we love to think that we left the beach, a little bit cleaner.
I am also glad, we saved the colorful material from becoming trash, so soon.
We continued our routine through the Summer 17 and hundreds more umbrellas were salvaged from the beach. I guess we have since established our ritual of gleaning and cleaning our local beaches. Adding to one more, in the vast list of New York City’s Summer rituals.
The pouches are now available for purchase in our web store, and 100% of the proceeds goes to the Surfrider Foundation.
They are great to tag along, and will for sure become the new micro-universe at the bottom of your everyday bag.
Enjoy the beach, …keep on surfing!
