A Story of Living, Giving and Love

Posted by PuraKai Clothing on Tue, Dec 1, 2015

Today is #GivingTuesday so I wanted to share a story about a young man I met last year at Ninos De La Promesa orphanage in Playas De Tijuana. I'm a little hesitant to tell the story because like most people I feel personal giving is more of a private matter, but the lessons I've learned from these children I think make it worth sharing.

Organic & Sustainable: A New Perspective On New Year's Resolutions

Posted by Jomally Fernandez on Thu, Jan 15, 2015

As much as I enjoy Christmas, lately I have been really excited about New Year's Day. The possibility of hitting the reset button and getting a fresh start beats any gift anyone could get me. However, the word 'resolution' has always reminded me of unrealistic expectations and predetermined disappointments. Which is why for the past three years my girlfriends and I changed our perspective on New Year's resolutions and began doing vision boards instead. It allowed me to keep focus on my goals by literally visualizing them.

The 7 Biggest Threats to Our Ocean: Threat #6 The Garbage Patch

Posted by Natalie Foote on Sat, Dec 20, 2014

AKA “The Great Pacific Garbage Patch”. Great, as in big, not as in good. As the global population expands, so does the amount of trash we produce. Ever wonder where is all goes? A large portion of that trash unfortunately ends up in our ocean. While it may seem like an out of sight, out of mind scenario, quite the opposite is true. Once the trash meets the sea, it is swept up in the oceans currents, where it is then carried to distant areas as the currents diverge and come together. These collections of trash have become known as the trash islands.

One of the biggest, and more famous of these trash islands (yeah, there is more than just one, and this one is comparable to the size twice that of Texas) is located between Hawaii and the California coast in a location known as the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre.  A gyre is a geographical term for a large system of rotating ocean currents, usually influenced by wind movements. They are caused by the Earth’s Coriolis Effect, and are often referred to as a swirling vortex within the sea, kind of like when you pull the drain in the bath tub and that funnel appears as all the water is sucked down the drain.
