Beautiful shorts

I love the print and the pockets! I love that they are made of recycled fibers but feel and look luxurious. Looking to buy more prints and support this brand in the future!

Amazing

Fit perfectly. Beautiful design. I love them.

Great bathers

I highly recommend these bathers if you like to be a little active, not just in the beach. This morning I’m taking them cycling. I’m 5’ 3”, 55 kg, DD and I bought the Small, both top and bottom. It’s possible medium may have been a better option as these are tight but they are also very comfortable and I like that they don’t move around. Very fast delivery, good packaging. So pleased to have found this company.

Perfect swim bottoms

I love these bottoms for swim, scuba, snorkeling. Perfect coverage and fit, no pulling or repositioning all day.

I love these shorts!

Comfortable, just stretchy enough, amazing pattern, would definitely recommend.

Perfect for kiteboarding!

These were my favorite shorts on a recent kiteboarding trip! 4" is just the right length: no wedges when jumping, comfortable under a seat harness. The waist is the right height. The small fit perfectly. ~122 lbs & 5"6' Will get another color for the next kite-cation.

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.
