Silipint brings a decade of experience in sustainability through its patented silicone drinkware in partnership with country superstar Kenny Chesney and No Shoes Reefs. The goal is to raise awareness for ocean conservation, with funds to benefit The Reef Ball Foundation. Silipint will sell printed No Shoes Reef designs on their website. Plus, SiliPint will release a custom coral- inspired tie-dyed Silipint in celebration of Plastic-Free July.
“At Silipint, we are passionate about creating a fun sustainable product and this partnership perfectly highlights how eco-friendly alternatives can help make a difference. We are honored to be joining all of the partners involved helping to rebuild the ocean’s habitat, one reef ball at a time.”, says Rick Fredland, Founder of Silipint.
As a grass roots project, Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Reefs came to life on a sunny day in Jacksonville, Florida. Kenny and his friends from CCA floated over two concrete structures that were sunk 18months prior. As the boat floats over the fish finders went crazy and depth finders turned bright red indicating the St Johns River had two new living reefs. Kenny along with Pat Murray, President of CCA proclaimed these as the first “No Shoes Reefs”!
Today, No Shoes Reefs continues to help ocean conservation groups. This year, they are highlighting their newest partner, The Reef Ball Foundation. Through Kenny’s voice, collaborations with brand partners, and along with his own very active, No Shoes Nation fanbase over a few million strong, they’re committed to helping keep the oceans and any/all waterways healthy for generations to come.
“Not any single one of us can do what needs to be done to change the fate of the ocean,” says Chesney. “But coming together with every person contributing their strengths, the difference can be pretty impactful. If I can be the meeting place for individuals, scientists, brands, conservationist, and people who just love the water, I love creating alliances to help support a healthier ocean.”
An ever-changing collaboration, No Shoes Reefs is a group of brands, ocean conservationist, scientists, and people wanting to join Kenny Chesney in helping create a healthier ocean, one Reef at a time.
