Bare Kind’s bamboo socks are helping save whales

We work with sustainable and passionate businesses that put the environment at the forefront of their brands and help us protect whales and dolphins. We’re proud to be working with Bare Kind, a sustainable and environmentally-conscious brand that shares our commitment to protecting the ocean and the hundreds of thousands (maybe millions) of species that call it home.

Biodiversity is the variety of life on Earth, and we know the critical role it plays in combatting the climate crisis. Whales and dolphins are key to the health and stability of ocean ecosystems, removing carbon, cycling nutrients and maintaining and sustaining the precious biodiversity that lives within them.

Bare Kind’s vision is to accelerate the restoration of a biodiverse planet whilst bringing joy to our everyday lives. They make bamboo socks inspired by different species and kindly donate 10% of the profits from their whale and orca socks to us. Protecting and investing in the future of our planet is an important part of their mission, they know to save the world, we must first save the whale.

Can you help save the whale to save the world?

With this in mind, Bare Kind uses the best materials not only for you and your feet but for the planet. Their socks are made from FSC certified bamboo which means it has been sustainably grown and harvested in China. They chose this material because it grows fast, has high yields and requires less water to grow, making them perfect for conscious shoppers like you.

Founded in 2018, Bare Kind has been dedicated to giving back to the world one step at a time. Their bamboo socks support conservation projects so individuals are able to be a part of something impactful with every purchase. In 2022, they made a generous donation of £577.53 towards our conservation projects which enabled us to fund five uniquely memorable school sessions for children in Scotland to teach them about the ocean, climate change and the wonders of whales and dolphins. They’re supporting us to inspire the next generation to become conservationists with a mission to protect our giant climate heroes and the biodiversity that our planet needs to survive.

If you’re eager to get your hands (or feet) on a pair of socks that celebrate whales and dolphins and make a tangible difference to their protection, you can use our discount code “CHARITY10” at checkout to get 10% off your order. This offer is limited to one use per customer.
