Rockaway Summer

We gathered some of our saltiest friends on a sunny day in Rockaway Beach for our latest photo shoot! Theme: best day ever. And, it was! We surfed, biked, coffeed, juiced, skated, fooled around on the boardwalk, and snapped a few photos along the way. Oh, and we just launched our women's capsule collection - check it out here!

Loomstate in Central Park

Team Loomstate hit the beautiful and expansive Central Park for a full day scavenger hunt! We wound our way around the park, unearthed unknowns, stumbled upon quiet nooks, gazed up at some stately monuments, did tree pose under a tree, went down a slide with 6 adults. Now we know of some great spots to head back to! It's important for us to spend time together outside of the office because we're all outdoorsy and, well, we like each other! Some snapshots...

Stoked Mentoring Charity Sample Sale




We're very excited to announce that this year Loomstate along with several other hip brands will be participating in a charity sample sale with our friends at Stoked!

Through skate, snow, and surf instruction, Stoked works with underprivileged urban youth to promote personal development, academic focus, and healthy living in NYC and LA.

This will be the charity's first year hosting the event and they already have hundreds of samples and overstock from brands like: Patagonia, Nike SB, Vans, Oakley, and of course Loomstate. Shoppers will be able to find some of their favorite styles up to 70% off! The best part of this event is that ALL proceeds will go towards the mentoring and after school programs at Stoked.

Event will run June 12-14, 12-6pm - RSVP

Learn more about Stoked and volunteer on a surf, skate or snow session - www.stoked.org

Save The Swales

New York Urban Gardening
Last year we came up with a plan to clean NYC's waterways.

The problem: When it rains our paved streets send dirty water into our sewers. Overwhelmed with this excess water, our wastewater treatment plants are forced to dump millions of tons of raw sewage and street debris directly into our rivers (this happens over 60 times a year)! Not only does this poison and deteriorate our sensitive river estuaries (home to some incredible creatures like the seahorse) it also endangers thousands of NYers who utilize our waterways for recreation.

The solution: We teamed up with the Lower East Side Ecology Center and Open Source Landscape to revitalize some forgotten pieces of land in Manhattan and turn them into permeable, runoff-filtering, green spaces...called a bioswale.

With the help of 50+ volunteers, a generous donation and ongoing support from the R & R foundation as well as the Citizen's Committee, we were able to complete four more bio-swales in NYC. This now gives the city a grand total of 1,200sq feet of citizen-built swales!

Be sure to check out our new bioswales on Allen street at Broome and Hester. Also sign up for our newsletter to volunteer and receive updates on our bioswales and other community projects this summer. Help make greening our urban spaces community fashionable!
