Fan of Toms? Here’s the bracelet equivalent whose purpose is sweeping the nation.
PURA VIDA – meaning ‘Pure Life’ in Spanish – began with a piece of string and 2 young men who came up with the idea to save the beaches of Costa Rica, and growing into a full blown charitable cause donating to not only our environment, but the relief efforts for our planet & community. Therefore, with every Pura Vida Bracelet sold, 1% is donated back to The Surfrider Foundation through 1% for the Planet. The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to protecting as well as preserving beaches and oceans worldwide. In addition to PV’s growth through cleaning up beaches around the world, it also aims to provide more and more full time jobs to the amazingly talented artisans of Costa Rica.
Each bracelet has a unique and different color combination so coming across someone with your exact bracelet will be a tough find. The hard work that goes into making each bracelet represents the dedication and respect for the beautiful land that we all live in. Selecting your “Pura Vida” bracelet isn’t always a quick task. Local jewelers spend days, even weeks creating specific bracelets to express their lifestyle. From vibrant colors to earth tones, Pura Vida Bracelets has any combination for you.
ALSO, with every purchase, you receive PURA VIDA POINTS, which enable you to make future ‘free’ purchases when you order off the site!
I’ve just purchased my BOSTON STRONG bracelet; 100% of the proceeds when buying this particular bracelet gets directly donated to the ONE FUND. Hurry & get yours before they sell out! (Which will happen, guaranteed.)
Check out the site for ways to get involved by becoming a Campus Rep, with Internships, Wholesale and Charity options, and even with Instagram. You can also follow up on PV’s Blog, as well as buy your very own bracelet & some accessories offered.
Here are some of the bracelet collections they have to offer:
