SAVE THE SEA during Black Week

ECOMAR + TWOTHIRDS
This year we will turn the black week blue.
We will not only offer you special discounts on our beautiful products, but for each purchase, made by you, we will clean up a part of selected beaches. Our common goal is to collect 100 kg of trash in total.
We at TWOTHIRDS are proud to have partnered with Ecomar and together with your help, we will clean beaches throughout the entire black week.
Our Friends from EcoMar are cleaning beaches since nineteen years and have so far cleaned 17,000 meters of coastline with the help of over 2 million children.
Ecomar was founded by Theresa Zabell in 1998 who decided to dedicate herself to the marine environment. She is a double Olympic medalist in sailing wanted to return to the sea what the sea had given to her. For this goal, she set up the Ecomar Foundation with a small group of altruistic defenders of nature. The Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to education in the care of our seas, their flora and fauna.
The main objective is to raise awareness among children through:
specific programs of coexistence in sport
workshops of care and respect for the planet
responsible food and care of our body
bringing the youngest to ecological values and immerse them in the culture of marine respect in the most natural way possible
Each day we will inform you through our newsletter how many kilos we have achieved so far.
EcoMar, TWOTHIRDS and you will join forces this Black Week to make a difference together for a better future and cleaner beaches.
With much respect from Barcelona,
The people from TWOTHIRDS

Our Chile TripFull post
This story actually starts in 1997. I was spending a school year abroad on the island of Maui, Hawaii and my brother, who was traveling around the world, decided to come for a visit. We were in the water nearly every day and became obsessed with traveling and discovering new waves.

More or less 8 years ago, we passed on our apartment in Hamburg to my brother, totally overloaded a moving van with our furniture and set out to make our dream come true in the Basque Country.
Duct Tape Invitational presented by Joel Tudor and VansFull post
This year, Joel Tudor’s Vans Duct Tape Invitational Camp; Festival was held in the north of Spain, in Zarautz (Basque Country). The last time it had been held in Spain was during the Salinas Longboard Festival, in Asturias, back in 2011. It’s been a long wait since then, but it was well worth it.
Seeking Adventures in SpainFull post
When I fell in love with a Spanish guy, I didn’t realize that I was also falling in love with a whole country. Living in Spain for the past 6 months, and exploring from misty mountaintops to wild seasides, has shown me just how much one tiny country can hold. As the days get longer, and warmer, I’m hoping to inspire some of your own adventures by sharing some of my favourite places.
