Here at Lush Fins, we believe that it's really important to have a positive impact on the world around us. That's why we've chosen to support the work of these three amazing organisations.
B1G1 - Business for Good
For every Surf Art Print you buy, we plant 1 forest tree to help restore the environment.
We've joined the B1G1 movement, so that every time one of our customers buys a surf art print from us, we have a way to give back to the planet that supports us and provides us with our inspiration.
It also means, that just by buying from us, you too can feel positive about the fact that you have done something great to help the environment, so it really is a win-win situation all round.
Not only are we planting trees, but through this process, we are also creating jobs for the people who are employed to plant them, so this really is an amazing way of giving back, as many good things are achieved, through one action and that all starts when you a surf art print from Lush Fins.
The Wave Project
The Wave Project is a charity that is close to our hearts and does amazing work, helping young people develop confidence and self esteem through surfing. This surf mentorship program provides young people, who are experiencing physical and mental difficulties, access to surf based therapy and the results are incredible.
Having volunteered for them, we've seen the difference their work makes first hand and it's truly amazing. You can literally see the change in the young people who've been referred to this course as they progress through it and it's so great to be able to share the stoke with them and see all their smiles, as they start catching waves.
"I became a volunteer for the Wave Project after experiencing difficulties with my own mental health, so I know how important the work they do is. You can read more about this on The Wave Project blog, by clicking here.
I also feature in this great short video, which shows a little of what The Wave Project is all about." Lush Fins Creator and Designer, Tom Metcalf aka Tems
As a way to keep on giving back and supporting this amazing charity, we will donate 1% from the sale of every Surf Art Print to The Wave Project, to help fund their life-changing surf mentoring courses.
Surfers Against Sewage
We are also members of the Surfers Against Sewage 250 Club.
We believe that it's super important to look after our environment and protect the oceans and beaches that we enjoy, so that future generations get to appreciate them like we do and that's while you often find us at Surfers Against Sewage beach cleans.
SAS inspire, unite and empower communities to protect oceans, beaches, waves and wildlife and we're proud to be able to support them with the awesome work they do.
