Welcome to Salty Aura. Our names are Jake and Jade and we are a young couple based in Middleton, South Australia. Our aim is to help inspire you all to get out and explore more of this incredible world, while also giving back to it. We are currently travelling Australia in our high top troop carrier, while designing more rugs and beautiful things.
We wanted to bring you quality aesthetics which can accompany you on your own adventures while also making a difference. Our rugs were created to take with us on our road trips, where we would spend most of our nights on sand, dirt or grass. We needed something to keep all that out, but at the same time, we also wanted something we could snuggle up in on those cold nights.
Why We Give?
We were inspired to give 10% of profits towards helping save our oceans after a trip to Bali. We were literally swimming in trash while witnessing giant manta rays trying to avoid the large clumps of single-use plastic. By 2050 there will be more plastic (by weight) in the ocean than fish. This is devastating, as we want our children to grow up in the fresh lively waters that we did. So far we have donated over $10,000 to Sea Shepherd and different Charities.
In 2020 we decided to shift our focus to improving the future, so we now have 2 new charity partners that we focus on now. We now focus on providing clean water to communities without, and planting trees to help remove carbon dioxide and support the villagers who plant them.
How We Give?
Our good friend Jack from the Adelaide Hills, has recently started a charity called OpBlue. An organisation providing water filters to communities without access to clean water in Kenya and Nepal. We aim to donate 40 water filters every month, improving the quality of life for people in 40 different villages.
To raise people out of poverty and restore forests, we donate 10 trees every rug sold to Eden Projects. Click here to see our progress so far and how many trees we have help plant, and how many working days we have provided to the local villagers.
