Sun & Body Care
Autumn Blum, Founder
As a chemist, an environmentalist and explorer — Autumn and her team came together after a dive in Palau with a mission to create skincare products for people and the planet. Understanding how fragile the aquatic ecosystem is, Stream2Sea offers sunscreen with no oxybenzone, octinoxate and octocrylene because of their possible impact to coral reef, and their tube packaging is made from sugarcane resin instead of plastic.

Chris Gove & Dustin Jeffers, Founders
When a group of ocean-loving Floridians got together to form Saltwater Brewery, they made sure to keep the sea at heart. While they are always refining the taste of their unique, handcrafted beers, they also make sure to advocate for the ocean through fundraising and educational events with nonprofit partners. Perhaps the coolest part: They’re the first brewery to use E6PR (Eco Six Pack Ring), made out of by-product waste and compostable materials.
Lauren Feingold and Ashanty Williams, Founders
Lauren and Ashanty’s dual passion for working out at the gym and cooking in the kitchen helped to create this line of plant-based protein bars. “There were no bars on the market that delivered the ingredients we craved,” they stated. The way they look at it, each ingredient is there for a reason. Miami’s high-performance athletes took notice. On your mark, get set, eat!
