Day 4: Pura Vida
What started as a surf trip to Costa Rica turned into a full blown bracelet and accessory business for two California surfers. Griffin and Paul purchased 400 string bracelets from local artisans in Costa Rica to bring back to the states and sell. Now they have employed over 800 artisans and are expanding so quickly they have expanded to employing artisans in El Salvador, India and on.
“At Pura Vida giving back has always been at the core of what we do, which is why we also created the Charity Collection. Over the last few years, we’ve partnered with more than 175 charities around the world to donate nearly $1.9 million to causes you care about. We’re always striving to do more and are constantly on the lookout for more charities that can benefit from Pura Vida Bracelets.”
