Our Product + The Spirit of Kindness
Project Pangia launched in July 2013 as an initiative to inspire travel and global kindness. Since then, our bracelets have connected people around the world, traveling over 128,000 miles and to more than 17 countries. I'm sure you know what it's like to meet someone and within minutes, days, or weeks, this person has left a lasting impression on you. When I travel, I have these kinds of connections multiple times a day. Sharing stories, laughter, and memories with fellow travelers.
The first Project Pangia bracelets were made by me and my friends. These people brought this idea to life and created some of my most cherished memories!
My vision became even more clear when I traveled to Indonesia in October. I started meeting all of these incredible artisans in Bali.
I knew the purpose of my trip was to cultivate the next steps I envisioned for Project Pangia. I immersed myself in the culture and made friends with a lot of locals. I spoke to them and saw firsthand how the fast-paced development on the island has created some major concerns. Because of tourism (primarily surf tourism) there is an estimated 5,000 tons of waste daily in the waterways and lands of Bali, an island that is only 2,232 sq. miles and the smallest province of Indonesia.
How It Works
By reaching our crowd-fund goal we will be able to pay for materials, develop a more user-friendly website, and create jobs for local artisans in Bali and opportunities for them to strengthen their skills in English, business, and environmental sustainability.
