    When the father and daughter duo of PuraKai Clothing noticed that most of the clothing manufactured by outdoor and surf clothing companies was actually made from fibers that had a negative effect on the outdoors and the ocean they decided to take action and the Made in USA California Organic Cotton Shirt Project was launched. Today, with two days left, the Father and daughter duo of Noel and Megan Huelsenbeck have successfully funded their 20 day Kickstarter Project. Noel says "We are very happy family, friends, surfers, stand up paddlers and other ocean lovers have supported us and helped successfully fund this project. In the coming months we will  reward their support by creating the only clothing in the world Made in California from organic cotton grown in California." Said Megan "We're excited to take the next step. Right now our men's and women's organic cotton clothing is made from GOTS certified organic cotton grown in India, but who knows, if this project succeeds maybe one day we'll be able to make all of our clothing from California grown organic cotton" To learn more about the project check out: The Made in USA California Organic Cotton Shirt Project on Kickstarter.
