As the ideal sun care solution for active people in the world’s harshest environments with an SPF 50, MANDA Organic Sun Paste is formulated for outdoor lovers by surfers, climbers, hikers and athletes to stay on longer and cover us through wind, water and sweat. Utilizing only the highest quality, food grade, organic ingredients, we make sure no harmful chemicals or ingredients are added, making our sun paste non-toxic, kid-safe and reef safe. By examining local traditions and applying them to modern day necessities, MANDA is developing simple, premium and natural solutions to promote longevity in life and our adventures.

At The Simply Co. we strive to make the most sustainable laundry detergent ever using just 3 organic and vegan ingredients. Our ingredients will always be listed on our packaging and with every single decision we make we will consider the health of our homes, our bodies, and the environment. Why is The Simply Co. different from any other company? Because we question everything. We don’t just make a “less bad” product with fewer toxic chemicals or kind of sustainable packaging, we make products that are truly good.

Indosole makes fashionable footwear featuring repurposed tire soles. Over a billion waste tires are discarded annually worldwide, landing in tire fires and landfills or filling with water to become breeding grounds for virus-carrying mosquitos. Indosole is on a mission to put a dent in the global waste tire problem by repurposing 1 million tires into durable soles for footwear. Aside from moving the recycling and repurposing movement forward, Indosole is also an advocate of healthy living and conscious consumerism.

As a social enterprise, Wanderer Bracelets‘s mission is to provide reliable work and income for artisans in Bali and to create inspiring, symbolic bracelets for people around the world. Every bracelet is handmade in Bali from locally sourced, repurposed water buffalo bone. This natural material is found in abundance in Bali – and it’s been a part of the island’s artistic heritage for generations.

Rareform intercepts vinyl billboards and repurposes them into completely one-of-a-kind products, from billboard-to-bag. Every billboard is carefully cleaned, cut, and sorted before it is sewn together into a unique Rareform product. Every new product is entirely different from the ones that came before it. Each has a different print and a different history. Plus, vinyl is naturally durable and a great material to work with.

TEEKI is an eco conscious active wear line. Teeki takes discarded water bottles and turns them into clothes, giving them purpose again through an eco-friendly process. Supporting you with your active lifestyle, Teeki is constantly moving forward with your body, mind, and spirit.

Bureo makes skateboard and sunglasses from recycled fishing nets. Operating a recycling program in Chile, ‘Net Positiva’, Bureo’s programs provides fishing net collection points to keep plastic fishing nets out of our ocean. Preventing harmful materials from entering the ocean, these recycling programs protect wildlife and support local fishing communities through financial incentives. Bureo is on a mission to find innovative solutions to prevent ocean plastics, and inspire others to join them in the movement to protect our oceans.
