The Reef Ugandal – Style Combined With Corporate ResponsibilityMay 1st, 2010 By Nathaniel
We recently received the new Reef Ugandal here at the shop and besides being a stylish piece of footwear it helps get the message out about the ongoing war in Uganda and its tragic social consequences. Reef partnered with 31bits, an organization dedicated to harnessing the entrepreneurial spirit of Ugandan women in refugee camps to help them climb out of poverty. Through 31bits, Reef pre-purchased the hand made beads that adorn the sandals from women in Uganda, providing them with an income and getting the word out to the international community at the same time. The beads are also completely made from recycled magazines, so there is an environmental benefit as well. Its a cool story, so support the women of Uganda by rocking a pair of Ugandal’s this summer! Also, be sure to check out our other great women’s flip flops from Reef!
