Loved by sailors, worn by everyone

 

Founded in 1946, the first shoe Sebago released was a hand-sewn penny loafer, inspired by the popular Indian moccasin. With its success came expansion and by 1954 they had celebrated the production of over 1,000,000 shoes. Then, throughout the 50s and 60s Sebago expanded its collection by offering a range of shoes, including women's models, and began to export internationally.

In 1970, Sebago released their iconic 'Dockside' boat shoe, their most recognizable model to date. The ‘Dockside’ is known for its handsewn genuine moc construction, slip-resistant rubber sole, and non-corrosive brass eyelets – worn by the likes of Pharrell Williams, Steve McQueen, Paul Newman, and Kate Middleton.

Today, Sebago are continued to be known for their quality and style, selling boat shoes, loafers, boots and more – hand-sewn by the finest craftsmen. They are comfortable yet stylish and not to mention, a must-have for your Summer wardrobe.

Halo Coffee increasing efforts to make more sustainable choices

 

With sustainability at their core, Halo Coffee is passionate about the health of the world’s oceans, waterways and natural landscapes. Halo is a proud sponsor of the British Sailing Team and wants to extend a special thank you to all RYA members with a 30% discount.

Halo Coffee, a specialty-grade coffee company, was founded as a direct response to the urgent need for reformation in the single-use coffee capsule industry. Thirty-billion plastic and aluminium coffee capsules have found themselves in places like our oceans, waterways and landfills where they will remain for up to 500 years. In comparison, Halo capsules break down at the same rate of that of an apple core: four weeks.

Halo Coffee is out to change the industry standard. Halo capsules are made from sugar cane pulp and are 100% garden compostable. With Halo, there is no need to send them to a specialised recycling plant - you can place them in your home recycle or compost bin. Rest assured, wherever Halo capsules end up they won’t be around for long.

While many coffee capsules are filled with low-quality coffees, the coffees inside Halo are all specialty-grade and sustainably farmed. Their single-origin Honduras has been awarded “Best Compostable Coffee Capsule” by Good Housekeeping magazine.

Halo exists because compromise shouldn’t. Because when given the choice between what is best for us and what is best for the world, Halo didn’t see a choice at all.

RYA members save 30% off with Halo Coffee, simply visit Halo’s Member Benefit page to find out how.
