The Swell team recently returned from a trip to Bali, Indonesia, where a partnership was solidified between Swell Shades and Green School. After reviewing a variety of charities with eco-friendly initiatives, Mitchell decided to cultivate a relationship with Green School. The team was incredibly excited about the emphasis on education in conjunction with environmental consciousness purported by Green School’s vision of, “a natural, holistic, student-centered learning environment that empowers and inspires our students to be creative, innovative, green leaders.”
During the trip Mitchell presented to the school and its founders, engaged with Green School students, and explored the rainforests of Bali. When my brother returned stateside, and I picked him up from the airport in San Francisco and he immediately launched into a story about playing with monkeys in the jungle. I was jealous that my day job prevented me from joining the adventure. I knew the descriptions of the rainforest and pictures from the beaches could not quite do justice to experiencing Indonesia firsthand. In the meantime, I will have to settle for a trip to San Francisco’s botanical gardens.
