PV Beach Cleanup

September 19, 2018 — by Katrina Hart

On September 18th 2018, Pura Vida Bracelets employees took to the sand to clean up one of their local breaks. They removed over 50 pounds of trash from the shoreline in Pacific Beach in honor of Coastal Cleanup Day.

PV Employees Anna, Katie, and Sammi found dozens of cigarette butts and removed them from the beach. Cigarette butts are one of the most popular items found in beach cleanups and ‘No-Smoking’ laws are helping with this issue.

PV Employee Vanessa holds a Pura Vida Bracelets flag to let the beach-goers know that PV is serious about their cleanup efforts!

PV Founder & CFO Paul makes sure to leave only his footsteps behind on the sand.

PV Employees Sammi and Katrina pose for a pic showing off their waterproof Pura Vida anklets.

PV Founder Paul and Employee Jared take a break to check the surf for their afternoon sesh.

PV Employees spread out to find micro-plastics amongst the sand.

PV Employees strategize on where to find their next piece of debris.

Teamwork makes the dream work at Pura Vida HQ.

PV employees traveled far down the shoreline to make sure that the whole beach was clean!

Even the first PV baby, Sawyer, participated in the cleanup!

The whole PV team loved getting out of the office for a few hours to help contribute reducing the amount of debris on our local beach. To learn more about how you can help reduce the amount of trash washing up on our shores, please visit the site of the Beach Environmental Awareness Campaign Hawaii.

We have another exciting back to school DIY you are sure to LOVE! This one involves our brand new stickers. Have you ordered your own sticker pack yet? They’re the perfect thing to decorate your school supplies with. Today we took a plain notebook and turned it into anything but boring. With all these fun designs, it was hard to choose! Follow along to see what we did to spice up our journal.

Supplies: 

  1. Notebook
  2. Pura Vida stickers
  3. Glue
  4. Scissors
  5. Decorational paper

We decided to recycle our Monthly Club folder for this craft. However, feel free to use any sort of craft paper or magazine cutouts. We trimmed the flowers out to use them as decoration on our notebook!

Once you have your cutouts, pick which stickers you want to use!

Place all the decorations exactly how you want it first before you stick or glue anything down.

Once you have the right design in your head, stick on the stickers and glue down the cutouts!

Now your notebook is good to go! Which stickers would you use? Tell us in the comments!

Pura Vida on KLTA 5 Morning News!!

Hey PV fans! This morning, our founders, Griffin Thall and Paul Goodman, were featured on KTLA 5’s Live Morning News and we couldn’t be more stoked! Check out the video below to see them talk about how Pura Vida began and how much it has grown since they started.

By: Nancy Cruz
POSTED 10:35 AM, JANUARY 14, 2015

“The Co-Founders of Pura Vida Bracelets Griffin Thall and Paul Goodman joined us live to tell us how a college graduation trip to Costa Rica helped them launch a multi-million dollar business venture.  Paul and Griffin visited a small community in Costa Rica to go surfing.  They crossed paths with two men named Jorge and Joaquin who were peddling bracelets on the street. The colorful bracelets were handmade in a simple way that seemed to capture the essence of their journey. Paul and Griffin asked them if they would be willing to make 400 bracelets to take back to the United States with them. Jorge was delighted to make such a sell, and the guys were thrilled to help them out, but to everyone’s good fortune, soon after returning to the states their friendship blossomed into a full-fledged business relationship.  Paul and Griffin were just named to the Forbes 30 under 30 list. This past year, the company made $9 million in revenue. For more information on the bracelets, visit their website.”  (Source)
