Welcome to Salty Aura. Our names are Jake and Jade and we are a young couple based in Adelaide, 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 met each other in November 2016 and both fell in love with travel and all things adventure. We bought a 1975 kombi and are slowly restoring her to one day make it our home while we tour Australia. In the meantime, we have backpacked South East Asia and further fuelled our passion for travel.
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 avid 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.
How We Give?
We donate 10% of every purchase to the Take 3 for the sea organization, or any organization that we personally know of that help save our beautiful oceans. These guys are committed to reducing plastic pollution and promoting the transition to a circular economy through education and participation.
