Santa Barbara, CA – March 24, 2015 -SeaVees, a premier, heritage footwear brand inspired by the casual, coastal style of 1960s, is pleased to announce its partnership with 1% for the Planet. Through this membership, SeaVees pledges one percent of its net sales to the preservation and restoration of the planet through the organization’s network of domestic and international grassroots environmental groups.
“Born in 1964 in California, a state celebrated for its natural beauty, we are endlessly inspired by our surroundings,” said Steven Tiller, CEO and Chief Designer of SeaVees. “We are proud to join 1% For The Planet to make a positive environmental impact on our Golden State and beyond.”
1% for the Planet was established in 2002 to build, support and activate an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet.
