In exactly one week, we'll celebrate the one year anniversary of Fair Seas Supply Co. (insert happy dance!!) I started this company after learning about both the negative environmental impact of the fashion industry and the sometimes deadly conditions of those who work in sew shops.
I wanted to create a product that was made from eco-friendly materials and sewn responsibly. I wanted it to be versatile enough to use year round. It had to be durable and timeless so that it wouldn't find it's way to a landfill. Mix in my love for stripes and all things nautical and, voilà, the first organic cotton, California-sewn beach blanket was born! Fast forward to a year later and here we are! So, thank you, THANK YOU to all of you who have been so supportive this first year in business. I am so grateful to you.
As I reflect on the family and friends who have offered their encouragement, advice and time as I've built Fair Seas, I realize how lucky I am. Not everyone, particularly not every young girl, has the kind of support that I do. That's why, in lieu of a holiday sale, this season we are donating 25% of all profits to Girls, Inc. a non-profit with a mission to inspire girls to be strong, smart and bold.If you want to learn more about Girls Inc., head to this link here. They do everything from hosting programs that teach young girls how to manage and save their money, mentorship programs to help them resist negative peer pressure, activities to help encourage skills in the sciences and technology fields and much more. You'll be helping young girl bosses in the making!
We'll be giving away 25% of all sales today through November 30th.
I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving and I can't wait to see what new adventures we'll have together next!
