Gifts for the ocean lovers in your life...

Looking for a gift for the ocean lovers in your life? We've got you covered. Whether you're shopping for a child or an adult, we're here to help you find something they'll love. 

As you might already know, Sande Kids™ supports Take 3 for the Sea. The idea is to take 3 pieces of rubbish with you when you leave the beach, waterway or other natural area to reduce plastic pollution. As a business we aim to bring awareness to the catastrophic amounts of plastic pollution in our oceans.

We chose to partner with Take3 as it’s a simple concept even our children understand. We donate $1 from each of our sales - this goes towards their mission to reduce plastic pollution through action on-ground and in-ocean, as well as education.

With Christmas fast approaching we want to encourage people to shop mindfully this year. We are thrilled to have been featured in the Ocean Lovers Christmas Gift Guide. Here you will find an amazing array of gifts from small ocean-conscious businesses...

 

Let’s start with the kids…you can never have enough beach toys! Afterall that’s why we designed the ultimate Beach Hauler™ beach bag to carry them all in…(wink!)
