Buy One. Plant One.

We’re excited to partner with MANG to support the restoration of habitat in Florida! And you can join us!

MANG is a high-performance apparel company that plants one mangrove for every product sold. The Buy One. Plant One.® initiative is more than just planting mangroves. It’s about preserving and restoring coastal habitats and communities.

During the month of June, when you purchase any custom CCA Florida MANG gear, you help support the cause!

 

Visit the online store today to check out the CCA Florida MANG gear!

Why mangroves?

  1. Act as a buffer between land and sea protecting the land against storm surges, boat wakes, and natural disasters.
  2. Hold sediment in place, preventing soil erosion and creating cleaner water ways.
  3. Provide habitat for all fish, crustacean, and bird species.
  4. #1 carbon sequestration tree in the world, locking down and providing carbon to our nearshore and offshore environments.
  5. Provide nutrients through falling of leaves & branches, also known as detritus. This is the start of the food web in our oceans.

Mangroves are a keystone species. Without mangroves, our coastal environments would suffer. At MANG we hope to inspire others who have the same passion to protect, preserve, and enjoy the resources that we have. With your support we can all make a difference and ensure healthy ecology for generations to come.
