WATER AND AIR, THE TWO ESSENTIAL FLUIDS ON WHICH ALL LIFE DEPENDS, HAVE BECOME GLOBAL GARBAGE CANS.

The Mission

We’ve come a long way as a species and are advancing every single day. But at what cost? Throughout the years, the pollution that we’ve put out has been finding its way all over our planet. There is an island of garbage floating in the Pacific Ocean that is twice the size of Texas. Not only is this just gross to think about, but it’s causing a lot of harm to the marine life.

Sand Cloud Towels is an amazing company that actually was featured on the hit television show, Shark Tank. They started with a mission to give back to our oceans and its creatures. I am so excited to work with them and to further strengthen the community of individuals who want to make a real difference. Coming together for a mission like this is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time because I have always felt a strong passion to make a positive impact.

People get sick easily by eating contaminated seafood that can cause serious health problems, from cancer to damage to the immune system. It is a viscous cycle that we’ve put ourselves in and some say, it’s too late to break it.

Our coral reefs are dying, sea turtles and seals are getting stuck in plastic and whales are washing up dead with bellies full of garbage. Are we a cancer to this planet? I would say, yes.

We’ve walked this planet for thousands of years yet have forgotten how important the ground under our feet is. We’ve introduced chemicals that poison the land, the air, the water and every living organism. Isn’t it crazy to think about the destruction that has happened in our wake?

Sand Cloud’s products range from shirts, towels, backpacks, water bottles, hats and more! I love what they offer as well as the amazing mission behind it.

It feels good to be a part of something bigger than myself and I’m looking forward to joining in with volunteer projects in my local area. I will do whatever I can to make this world a better place. Will you?
