About Surfrider Foundation
The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world's ocean, waves, and beaches through a powerful activist network. We ensure clean water, healthy ocean and coastlines, and accessible beaches for all to enjoy by finding lasting solutions to the threats our ocean faces.
Right now, Surfrider has 56% of our coasts protected. We have a vision to protect 100% of the U.S. coastlines over the next five years.
SURFRIDER AND COASTAL CHARM
At Coastal Charm, we love the ocean; we grew up with it, have laid on its beaches all our lives, and have seen what happens when natural disasters and human ignorance degrade its shores. We’ve focused the designs on our t-shirts on the water and the creatures that thrive in and around it, and that’s why we couldn’t think of a better organization to donate to than to the Surfrider Foundation.
With your help, we can save our beaches and coastlines. We vow to donate 10% of our net profits to the Surfrider Foundation and other charities like it so that we will always have sand beneath our feet and the sound of crashing waves in our ears and hearts.
