how we began


The pandemic has been a catalyst to so much change throughout the world and within everyone’s individual lives. We are a group of women deciding to not just ride the waves of change, but create our own waves. Playera is a sustainable apparel brand with the mission of educating and reducing the plastic waste we produce.  Our planet needs help, and we want to provide a positive contribution that involves local action and awareness through beach cleanups and products that are sustainable, fair-trade, and eco-friendly. Now is the time to leave our footprints in the sand for the right reasons. Join us. We will have ongoing beach clean ups that everyone can join in on. Please ride the wave with us, its going to be epic!



Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.

With the world at a brink of disaster, I felt like staying at home during the Covid-19 Pandemic was a global wake up call. I wanted to be part of the solution, and not contribute to the problem. After talking with some amazing women, we decided we want to be in business to help save our planet. By starting Playera, we hope make an impact and educate people on how they impact the world we live in.

Nothing lights my soul on fire quite like being immersed in nature. It is where I feel happy, free, and truly connected. Sadly, our wild places are becoming tainted and scarce. I want nothing more than to help protect and reclaim it. Playera has become the passion project I’ve desired to elevate environmental consciousness through sustainable products, education, and clean-ups.

I joined Playera early in the launch, when I came across an event for beach clean up being held by Playera. Having a background in hospitality, living in Miami, and raising a family, I value the planet we live in, and the wonderful ecosystem  that gives life to Miami. Without it, there is no future.  I joined to make an impact not only here, but across the world by bringing awareness to the dire situation the planet is in.

I am a college student majoring in Marine Biology, & have been fascinated with marine life for as long as I can remember. As the years go by, I’ve witnessed how human activity has affected our beloved oceans and its fascinating ecosystem. I decided to join Playera because I believe in this cause. I aim to create a positive impact, not only for my generation but also for the future of this planet.
