Perhaps you’ve seen them on social media, perchance you caught them on ABC’s Shark Tank, or maybe you’re just hearing about them for the first time—regardless, Sand Cloud is a becoming a big company that is making an even bigger difference. Their goal is simple: to protect and preserve the ocean, one beach towel at a time. They design fun and colorful beach towels, and 10% of each sale goes to protecting marine life.
Sand Cloud supports four incredible organizations: Marine Conservation Institute, Surfrider Foundation, Pacific Marine Mammal Center, and San Diego Coastkeeper. Each is a non-profit dedicated to protecting and preserving the ocean as well as its inhabitants.
Sand Cloud is comprised of a large number of ambassadors that are beach lovers, photographers, surfers, and all-around good people who are committed to the preservation of marine life. Their ambassador program offers discounts and is open to anyone, with more details are available on their website.
Although the prices of the towels are a bit steep, you can rest easy knowing that your money is going to a good cause. If you’re looking for a thick, cozy beach towel to wrap up in after a chilly session this towel isn’t for you. But if you are looking for a cute, lightweight towel to lounge on and pack along for your travels, this towel is perfect. The towel packs down small, making it the ideal travel companion.
In addition to being something to lounge on or dry off with, the towel doubles as a beautiful sarong or room décor. They come in small and large sizes so you can drape one on the wall as a tapestry, share with a buddy, or keep it entirely to yourself. Sand Cloud also offers t-shirts, water bottles, necklaces, and phone cases, giving you more opportunities to protect marine life. At Sand Cloud, they’re all about saving the fishies (#savethefishies).
