Do Good ~ Feel Good
| Ripples To Waves
We like to think our collections are more than beautiful towels; to us they are the embodiment of our desire to protect and restore our Oceans on a global scale. We hope that creating relationships with world class marine foundations will turn our towels into waves of advocacy." Founders - Albert & Shannon DiPadova
"Many of us ask what can I, as one person, do, but history shows us that everything good and bad starts because somebody does something or does not do something."

Proceeds from the Sale of the Biarritz Towel go to support Wild Oceans
Wild Oceans (formerly the National Coalition for Marine Conservation or NCMC) was founded by anglers in 1973. Like the sportsmen before us who pioneered wildlife conservation on land, we are passionate protectors of fish and the wild world we share. ￼
Our mission is to keep the oceans wild to preserve fishing opportunities for the future. To do this, we bring conservation-minded fishermen and pro-fishing environmentalists together to promote a broad, ecosystems approach to fisheries management that reflects our expanding circle of concern for all marine life and the future of fishing.
Our programs emphasize conserving the ocean’s top predators – the big billfish, swordfish, tunas and sharks that are the lions, tigers and wolves of the sea – while preserving healthy ocean food webs and critical habitats essential to the survival of all fish, marine mammals and seabirds. ￼
So much of what we love about the sea, about fish, about fishing, is in the wildness. But that wild world, and the future of fishing, now hangs in the balance. Everything we do, every decision we make, must be guided by a clear vision of the future we want for our oceans and of how the fishing public and responsible consumers will fit into that future.

Proceeds from the Sale of the Diamond Towel go to support The Oceana Foundation
Oceana was established in 2001 by a group of leading foundations — The Pew Charitable Trusts, Oak Foundation, Marisla Foundation (formerly Homeland Foundation), and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
In 1999, these foundations commissioned a study and discovered that less than 0.5 percent of all resources spent by environmental nonprofit groups in the United States went to ocean advocacy — an appalling statistic. No organization was working exclusively to protect and restore the oceans on a global scale.
To fill the gap, our founders created Oceana: an international organization focused solely on oceans, dedicated to achieving measurable change by conducting specific, science-based campaigns with fixed deadlines and articulated goals.
The Ocean Law Project — also initiated by The Pew Charitable Trusts — was absorbed into Oceana in 2001 as Oceana’s legal arm. In 2002, Oceana merged with American Oceans Campaign, founded by actor and environmentalist Ted Danson, to more effectively address our common mission of protecting and restoring the world’s oceans. Since its founding, Oceana has won more than 100 victories and protected more than one million square miles of ocean. Find out more about how Oceana is helping to save the oceans victory by victory.
Proceeds from the Sale of the Essential Towel go to support the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Foundation
WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation (formerly WDCS) is the leading global charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of whales and dolphins. We defend these remarkable creatures against the many threats they face through campaigns, lobbying, advising governments, conservation projects, field research and rescue. Our vision is a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free. WDC is a passionate, global campaigner for whales and dolphins, speaking with emotion and wonder, but always with authority. We make sure our voice is heard by decision makers.
We care about whales and dolphins and we want others to care about them too.
WDC’s core belief is that all whales and dolphins have the right to exist as nature intends, not as humans decide. To be able to live free from hunting, captivity, entanglement in fishing gear and nets, and to swim in clean, noise-free waters where boats won't injure them.
And, if you believe in these rights then you would be right to join us! Read our Supporter Charter.

Proceeds from the Sale of the Geo Round Towel go to support the Channel Islands Park Foundation
Close to the California mainland, yet worlds apart, Channel Islands National Park encompasses five remarkable islands (Anacapa, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, San Miguel, and Santa Barbara) and their ocean environment.
Isolation over thousands of years has created unique animals, plants, and archeological resources found nowhere else on Earth and helped preserve a place where visitors can experience coastal southern California as it once was.
We are the Channel Islands Park Foundation Formed in 2005, Channel Islands Park Foundation is the only non-profit, philanthropic partner of Channel Islands National Park. Recognizing the challenges of managing the complex island ecosystems and richly diverse cultural resources, the Foundation is committed to the ongoing work of Channel Islands National Park. In co-operation with the National Park, the Foundation funds education, protection and preservation efforts.
Channel Islands National Park was set aside by Congress not only to preserve park resources, but to provide for visitor enjoyment of these resources. As such, we are dedicated to creating innovative opportunities for people to connect with the park through interactive education and volunteerism.
We encourage you to visit Channel Islands National Park, to experience the tranquility, to enjoy the beauty and in so doing, create a lasting connection that will inspire memories for years to come.
We strive to build a broad base of diverse stewards who understand and appreciate the fragile island ecosystems and rich cultural legacies and act to preserve them for generations to come.
How we do this… Connect: Build broad support and awareness of the mission of Channel Islands Park Foundation.
Inspire: Identify opportunities, strategies and systems that inspire our community and lead to philanthropic generosity of time, talent and treasure to reach our mission.
Commit: Cultivate opportunities for the community to invest time, talent, and/or treasure to meaningfully contribute to education, protection, and preservation.
Proceeds from the Sale of the Cadiz Collection go to support 4Ocean
WHERE DO YOU HOST YOUR CLEANUPS? The 4Ocean team is constantly traveling and moving from coastline to coastline both locally and internationally to help keep all beaches and oceans clean. The 4Ocean team hosts both onshore and offshore cleanups. Onshore Beach Cleanups are an effective way to prevent trash from entering the ocean whereas Offshore Cleanups are a very effective way to remove trash that has already entered the ocean. Please feel free to sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the page to receive more information in regards to future cleanups and when and where our next cleanup will be! WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THE TRASH YOU COLLECT AT YOUR CLEANUPS? All of the trash we collect is rinsed and sorted. After that, it is analyzed to be recycled. If it can possibly be recycled such as glass and plastic, it is brought to a local recycling center. If it is considered non-recyclable it is disposed of as such at a reputable waste facility. CAN I VOLUNTEER AT A CLEANUP? Yes! We are always thrilled when people want to volunteer and come out to help us clean our beaches! If you are interested in volunteering, you can sign up for our newsletter, at the bottom of the page, to be informed when and where our next cleanup is going to be. If it is in your area, we encourage you to come out and join us in cleaning the beaches!

About the Sea Turtle Conservancy
It is the mission of Sea Turtle Conservancy to ensure the survival of sea turtles within the Caribbean, Atlantic and Pacific through research, education, training, advocacy and protection of the natural habitats upon which they depend.
The Sea Turtle Conservancy, formerly known as the Caribbean Conservation Corporation, is the world's oldest sea turtle research and conservation group. An international nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization, Sea Turtle Conservancy was founded in 1959 by world-renowned sea turtle expert Dr. Archie Carr to save sea turtles from eminent extinction through rigorous science-based conservation.
Headquartered in Florida, the organization carries out worldwide programs to conserve and recover sea turtle populations through research, education, advocacy and protection of the natural habitats upon which depend upon. Over the course of 55 years, Sea Turtle Conservancy's research programs have yielded much of what is now known about sea turtles and the threats they face, and the organization is applying this knowledge to carry out the world's most successful sea turtle protection and recovery programs.
Proceeds from the Sale of the Key West Towel go to support the Coral Restoration Foundation
We are a nonprofit ocean conservation organization working to restore our coral reefs, educating others on the importance of our oceans, and using science to further research and monitoring techniques. We are dedicated to creating offshore nurseries and restoration programs for threatened coral species. These programs have allowed us to take the lead in innovative nursery and restoration techniques that are implemented worldwide. Due to multiple stressors in the late 1970s and early 1980s, previously dominant reef building corals throughout the Florida Keys and the Caribbean declined dramatically, leaving the remaining corals scattered and facing extinction. Through propagation techniques, tens of thousands of corals are grown and maintained in multiple offshore coral tree nurseries before being strategically outplanted on reefs allowing them to continue on a path to natural recovery. With the help of students, volunteers, scientists, and donors, our corals are successfully raised until they are “reef-ready”, outplanted onto the reef, and monitored. Our innovative techniques are scalable and they are making a difference for our oceans.
