Ocean Minded at Tilly's.com!Be Ocean Minded.That simple idea is the foundation of our company. The Ocean Minded brand was established in 1996 by Gary Ward, and was built on the principles of protecting our beaches, respecting the environment, and an overall love for life. We make top quality footwear with unbeatable comfort, while utilizing natural and sustainable materials whenever possible. The Ocean Minded Global Headquarters is located in San Clemente, California, where we put all of our sandals and shoes through intense testing at our local beaches and parks. We invite you to do the same! Our crew lives the Ocean Minded lifestyle by actively leading community beach clean-ups and educating our customers on the importance of leaving the ocean and all waterways in better condition than when they were found. We encourage you to pick up 10 pieces of trash the next time you head out to your favorite place, whether it’s the beach, lake, or mountains. That place will then be that much nicer for the next person who comes to use it. Thank you for choosing Ocean Minded!The above information is taken from the Ocean Minded website.
