PRESS RELEASE BY WILDERPR
I wanted to invite you to Patagonia’s Santa Monica store this Thursday 11/17 from 7-9:30pm for the premiere of a new film about Bureo – a brand with a mission to find innovative solutions for the growing issue of plastic pollution in our oceans, inspire future generations, and initiate social change.
Bureo designs and manufactures a unique line of sustainable products sourced from recycled fishing nets for the action sports industry. By offering recycled high quality products, Bureo enables ethically conscious consumers to support recycling development and local job growth. Bureo’s current product offering includes two different skateboards and unique line of sunglasses, with materials sourced from Chile through the team’s initiative, ‘Net Positiva’, Chile’s first ever fishnet collection & recycling program. Net Positiva provides fisherman with environmentally sound disposal points, while Bureo receives highly recyclable and durable raw materials.
Founded by a like-minded team with a passion for the ocean, Bureo is currently headquartered in Los Angeles, CA with operations in Chile. Bureo is a 1% For the Planet member and a participating venture in Patagonia’s $20Million and Change fund, focused on supporting like-minded start-ups having a positive impact on the environment.
The evening will include live music from Boaz Roberts, food from Patagonia Provisions and beer from House Beer (please bring a reusable cup!)
The event is free and open to the public.
The facebook invite can be found here. I have also attached the invite.
