To celebrate the launch of our brand new print edition, we’ve partnered with our friends at TOMS and OUTERKNOWN to create an exclusive subscription offer, perfect for the season of long balmy days and light relief.
As we type, somewhere in South Wales our summer volume is rolling hot off the presses. It’s dedicated to the myths, legends and lore that animate surf culture, taking in tall tales from across the surfing world. With 144 pages of long-form storytelling and beautiful imagery, it’s designed to offer a break from the noise and an opportunity to while away the hours in joyful solitude this summer in your favourite beach spot or quiet headland perch.
With the opening schedule of shops and newsagents still up in the air, we decided to make this one a subscriber-only edition, exclusively available from our website. To welcome you into the fold, we’ve teamed up with TOMS and Outerknown to offer a free pair of Lagoon flip flops (which usually go for £44) with every new annual subscription.
More than a pair of stylish summer footwear, these sandals mark a coming together of TOMS’ socially conscious values and Outerknown’s focus on sustainability. They’re constructed from a variety of earth-friendly elements including ECONYL regenerated nylon, which is created from discarded fishing nets and industrial waste, and BLOOM algae, a plant-based technology that restores the environment from which it’s harvested.
“By collecting the fishing nets that are regenerated into ECONYL® products, we lessen our environmental impact while also cleaning up the oceans that we love so much.” – Kelly Slater
Since it was founded, TOMS has been squarely focussed on giving; donating shoes and investing in positive change through financial grants. Most recently, they announced a commitment to donate one-third of their annual profits to a host of partner organisations that engage in creating opportunities for all, improving mental health and physical safety.
While TOMS takes care of the positive social impact, Outerknown brings earth-friendly innovations to the table. Co-founded by Kelly Slater in 2015, the team set out to prove that clothing brands could tread much more carefully on the planet, without compromising on style. In the five years since, they’ve pioneered new materials and sustainability standards setting a high bar for the rest of the industry to follow.
