Mindset is everything. Reset, relax and recalibrate. Lose yourself in a dreamy aquatic cyclone of fresh citrus fruits, woody cedar and salty ocean waves.

When you purchase this product, a portion of the sale goes to Friendship Bridge, a non-profit charity that creates opportunities that empower women in Guatemala to build a better life through microfinance, education, and healthcare. Friendship Bridge works primarily with indigenous women in Guatemala, in rural areas where the rate of poverty in Guatemala is the highest.
- Fifty-nine percent of population lives in poverty
- Fifty percent of Guatemalan children under five suffer from chronic malnutrition (highest rate in Latin America, sixth highest in the world, double that of Haiti)
- More than 60% of indigenous Guatemalan women are illiterate
- Guatemala is still recovering from a devastating 36-year civil war that ended in 1996
Investing in women is smart from both an economic and a social perspective. Globally speaking:
- Women invest up to 90% of their income in their families and communities
- Women make up 70% of the worlds poor
- Women work two-thirds of the world’s working hours, but only make 10% of the world’s income
