ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY THE Floridan Aquifer

Alachua Conservation Trust LogoFlorida evokes daydreams of white sandy beaches and palm trees – but perhaps the most magnificent water in Florida lies just out of sight. In the Sunshine State, water fills the limestone cavities of the Floridan aquifer beneath our feet. This is the source of drinking water for 92% of Floridians. But this water is not always hidden - where it finds its way to the surface, it forms marvelous freshwater springs, which support not only human life in Florida but also incredibly diverse and unique aquatic ecosystems. In fact, Florida is home to the highest density of freshwater springs in the world – more than 1,000 of them dot the karst landscape of the sunny peninsula.

Unfortunately, increasing development and growing pressures on water resources are having negative impacts on Florida’s springs. Over the past 15 or 20 years, Florida’s burgeoning population has had a plethora of consequences for the springs, namely decreases in flow due to over-pumping and a transition from native underwater grasses to nasty algae. Nitrate levels in the springs have skyrocketed and ecosystem dynamics have changed as food webs are altered.

Thankfully there are many passionate citizens and non-profit organizations that advocate for our springs, work to protect them, and raise awareness about their unique beauty as well as their decline. One of these groups is the Alachua Conservation Trust, a non-profit regional land trust created to address the need of protecting critical natural lands from development and degradation in North Central Florida. 10% of profits from our springs prints go their work to conserve, restore and celebrate this important resource.

Perfect for Fly Fishing in Saltwater

I’ve been looking for lightweight leggings I can wear walking the shores and flats of Hawai’i while I fly cast. These Waterlust leggings are just great - the Mermaid Camp blends with the environment, the material is quick drying and blocks the sun but is still cooling. The extra length tucks neatly into my wading tabi boots and keeps out sand. Add the fact that they are recycled and a portion of the sales goes to ocean environmental causes means I’ll probably buy several pairs!

Better then expected

I can't believe how nice these are. I normally would never pay so much for leggings but couldn't resist "mermaid camo". They showed up quickly and the colors are so vibrant! The material feels super nice and high quality. I love the side pockets,, one on each side and deep enough your phone will not fall out even while running.

Good craftsmanship and fit is true to size - I'm 5ft 6 in and 150#, I bought size Legendary. They have extra inseam length, I am going to buy a pair for my 5ft 11in sister, these will definitely be long enough for her long legs.

I was really looking forward to these leggings and they far surpassed my expectations. I will be buying more. I also got a couple hair scrunchies (turtle and abalone print)...they are gorgeous!

These leggings are absolutely beautiful! I got compliments from strangers the very first day I wore them. They’re super comfortable, and stretchy, and the material is super smooth. Highly recommend!
