Castaway Coffee, a brand known for its commitment to exceptional coffee and sustainability, is excited to announce a new partnership with the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) Florida, a leading non-profit organization dedicated to marine fisheries conservation, education, and advocacy. As part of this collaboration, a portion of all sales from Castaway Coffee will be donated to support the protection of Florida's precious waterways and fisheries.
"Our mission is to roast and sell great-tasting coffee. We also think it is important to give back, so for each bag of coffee we sell, we give a portion of sales to help protect our oceans," said Laura M. Sixto, co-founder and Conservation Coordinator for Castaway Coffee. "We strongly believe in the work of the Coastal Conservation Association Florida to help conserve, promote, and enhance the present and future availability of coastal resources."
Castaway Coffee's dedication to environmental stewardship doesn't stop at this partnership. They are also proud members of the 1% for the Planet initiative. Steve Diossy, co-founder of Castaway Coffee and a prominent marine artist, has also played a significant role in raising funds for oceanographic research. He is renowned for designing the "Protect Wild Dolphins" and "Protect Marine Wildlife" license plates for Florida.
Diosy says, "It's always more about us than the fish. I feel we are all fish out of water. As anyone who grew up in Florida knows, we all love being in and around the water, and that's definitely where I'm happiest." His unique and whimsical artistic style is beautifully reflected in the brand's packaging, capturing the essence of the coastal lifestyle.
