Coco-Zen Supports the Surfrider Foundation

We hope our kids and future generations will be able to enjoy the natural beauty of this planet as we have. So, although we are still a fledgling company, we’re putting our money where our mouth is.

Coco-Zen is honored and proud to be a Retail Member of the Surfrider Foundation USA. We also look forward to participating in future events with our local San Mateo chapter.

The Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches. Founded in 1984 by a handful of visionary surfers in Malibu, California, the Surfrider Foundation now maintains over 50,000 members and 80 chapters worldwide.

Coco-Zen Joins Pristine Planet

We came across PristinePlanet.com when Joyce went searching on the internet for fun organic tees and eco-friendly lunch supplies for her toddler. After spending “too much time” browsing through all the categories and interesting products, Joyce realized this would be a great venue for Coco-Zen.

Pristine Planet’s Mission
“Pristine Planet is a shopping resource that brings socially responsible merchants together so visitors can shop, browse, compare & review sustainable companies and products in the convenience of one website.

Rewarding environmentally and socially responsible companies should be as easy as possible, for that is truly the only way that consumers can send a positive message to industry that cannot be ignored. Organizations that make our world a better place should be recognized for their efforts — and our mission is to help.”
