The Bead Co. (Pty) Ltd proudly celebrates its global alliance with Project Aware Foundation and has launched a bespoke blue, orange and white hand-beaded bracelet. Created to raise global ocean awareness and funding for PADI’s social investment foundation, the tangible, cause-related product is the second ‘SAVE’ bracelet campaign from The Bead Co. and follows the internationally successful RHINO FORCE bracelet.
Project Aware Foundation, started by PADI, is a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean planet – one dive at a time. Project Aware focuses on two major ocean issues – Sharks and Manta Rays in peril and Marine Debris. There are many conservation issues converging on our ocean and Project Aware focusses on scuba divers affecting real, long-term change in the ocean.
Project Aware Director says, “We fully support the Ocean Force initiative and are delighted that the bracelets help fund our work in conservation, underwater cleanups and data collection.”
The beaded bracelet is hand-made in rural South Africa. The Bead Co’s Enterprise Development Programme, BEAD THE CHANGE, creates employment for previously disadvantaged individuals in rural communities. Furthermore, full-time employees in Gauteng pack, administrate and dispatch the bespoke bracelet worldwide, simply making this precious beaded bracelet the cause accessory of choice.
