prAna: Giving Back and Making a Difference
PrAna has been popping up everywhere in my world recently. What once was a semi-unknown brand to me, I now see EVERYWHERE! A friend of mine recently wore a sweater from PrAna to work. I had to make a stop at REI, and lo and behold – PrAna had its own section!
Why does this make me so excited? Because I love seeing companies that want what’s best for customers (and the world) succeed.
November is the time of year when we take time to think about and appreciate everything that we are grateful for… It’s one of my favorite aspects of the Holiday Season. During the holiday season, it is a time of giving. How awesome would it be to buy gifts for your loved ones or yourself, but then also know that the money you spent would be used to give back to the community? DOUBLE WIN.
PrAna has at the heart of their mission and vision to make a difference in the world: whether its by how they make their clothes and what products they use, to how they give back to the community and to make the world a better place — they have a strong mission of CHANGE.
What Sets prAna Apart
They’re conscious of the way their clothes are made:
If you haven’t heard of prAna or know what they stand for, let me tell you a little about them. PrAna’s clothes are made sustainably, out of recycled, fair-trade certified and hemp items. prAna made a short video on why they use hemp:
As a consumer, I want to know how what I wear affects my body and my system. So I’ve started looking into it and while I’m no expert, I now know that we HAVE to start taking a closer look at how our clothes are made.
1. How they’re made affects the clothing that we are putting on our bodies (which our skin comes into contact with).
2. How they’re made directly affects the quality of the clothing.
3. How they’re made impacts the environment.
It’s time we start leaving a positive impact instead of a negative one.
They’re creating versatile and stylish clothing:
prAna designs clothes that are comfortable, cute, classy, and are versatile.
Clothing is an expression of who we are. And prAna has made a point to design clothing that will excite people to wear, whether its for work, for an outdoor adventure, or for a sweat session in the gym.
If I could wear leggings and hoodies all day everyday, But prAna has changed the game with their athleisure and athletic lines. I’m absolutely obsessed with the Rockaway Jacket and the Caraway Tights that PrAna sent me.
Side Note about the Caraway Tights: They passed my “Squat Test.” I hate leggings that slip off your waist while you’re trying to do a squat and/or become see through when you are squatting. The Caraway Tights didn’t slip down AND they didn’t become see through. WIN!!
The Number One Reason I Choose prAna
If you have a problem with something you bought, they’re not going to blow you off. They want your feedback. prAna actively wants to make their company and your experience better. That makes a difference to me, personally. Customer service is something that should be common – but it’s not. But prAna’s got it. And it shows!
And along the same lines, they’re giving back to the community because THEY CARE!
The world is in desperate need of positivity. And prAna is dedicated to give back more than they take from the world. During the holiday season, prAna donatse a portion of the proceeds from a select collection of items to Outdoor Outreach, which is a non-for-profit organization that connects underserved youth with the outdoors. This is near and dear to my heart as a middle school counselor.
I could talk endlessly about how great I think prAna is, but they have a whole section of their website dedicated to it. I encourage you to check out the prAna Sustainability section of their website.
prAna has given me a special discount code to share with you all for 15% off if you order before 11/22!
