Advocate Apparel Inspired by the Floridan Aquifer and springs

Florida 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.

Love it!

I wore this for the first time this morning surfing and loved it! Everything stays where it's supposed to, I love having the extra sun protection without having to use sunscreen! Does not hurt that I have had multiple comments of approval from my husband.

really nice

I really like the fabric and the design, so far the best one I've been able to fined. personally I'd like a bit more coverage in the rear and a bit less on the neck, but the sleeves and fit was perfect. x) and all for a good cause x)

Kira Tucker (Stockton, CA, US)
I love it!

Fantastic! I love having more coverage to protect myself from the sun. As someone with Lupus, my symptoms are easily triggered by too much sun exposure, so I was thrilled to discover these suits. The best low impact workout I can do is water aerobics so now with the extra coverage, I can work out more safely in the pool. Also, this print on the fabric is very high quality and the fabric does not chafe anywhere.
