We give back to communities through multiple ways. We 100% support people helping other people, as a company that can sustain its growth thanks to everyone's support, and as individuals who are part of various communities. We try our best to offer help where we can.
As part of nature, we believe that without the rest of our environmental elements, we humans cannot exist in this world. It means that we need to look after our nature and do our bit to maintain maximum coexistence while we still have a chance. Sustainability protects our ecosystem and improves the quality of our lives. You can read more about our sustainability projects here.
Support Non-profit Charitable Organisations
- The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF)
Our Ladies in Business shirts are dedicated to ladies in businesses and also spreading awareness of breast cancer.
$2 from every shirt sold are donated to NBCF. Donations help with cancer research to cure breast cancer which is the cause of death on average of 9 women every day.
- The Great Barrier Reef Foundation
Our sustainable eco bag is made of recycled cotton which prevents additional textile waste and requires far fewer resources than conventional or organic cotton. Recycled cotton is made of old garments or textile leftovers. It is also biodegradable so easy on the earth.
All the proceeds from the sales of these bags will be donated to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. They help restore a reef wildlife sanctuary. Donations would help to plant corals on degraded reefs, rebuild endangered turtle habitats, expand the seed growing capabilities for seagrass meadows and expand their operations to larger areas to protect more reef.
We have been in a close relationship with Heartkids for a while now. They are taking another pre-order of Heartkids sun safe shirts! The shirt print that their team designed looks fantastic and very on brand. This is a limited edition so jump on board now to support fundraising for their national Sweetheart Day on 14th of February.
Visit their website to order.

This month, we give away a pair of fishing leggings and shorts. They are unisex and very popular to avid fishermen and women. Influencer Jim's Fishing wears them all the time. He swears by them for protection against sunburn, sandflies and mozzies.
We’ve been told VB flowing freely in the blood stream helps build up an immunity for the prevention of sandfly bite. We wouldn’t condone that as much as we recommend our leggings though.
