Award-Winning Tequila Brand Drops Limited Edition Merch Collection on Giving Tuesday. S.A.C.R.E.D. is 818's Environmental Nonprofit Partner, Supports Agave-Producing Communities In Mexico.
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- 818 Tequila, the award-winning tequila brand founded by Kendall Jenner, launched a limited-edition merch collection for Giving Tuesday today. Instead of a traditional merch drop, 818 Tequila is continuing their mission of giving back to the planet with purchases helping to support 818's sustainability efforts and ongoing partnership with S.A.C.R.E.D., a U.S.-based nonprofit that supports rural Mexican communities where heritage agave spirits are made.
818 Tequila's Giving Tuesday merch collection includes t-shirts and hats along with seasonal items like a crew neck sweatsuit. 818 Tequila's crewneck sweatshirts, sweatpants, and T-shirts are made from Organic Cotton. This cotton is produced using 90% less water than non-organic cotton, and the manufacturing produces fewer greenhouse gases, helping to minimize environmental impact. For this merch drop, 818 Tequila sourced a material that would reflect their commitment to both the Earth and the 818 community. Items will be available on Tuesday, November 30th on shop.drink818.com until sold out.
Founded by Lou Bank, S.A.C.R.E.D. (Saving Agave for Culture, Recreation, Education and Development) hosts educational tastings and fundraises to underwrite programs that help replant agave, build libraries, ensure water security and repair damage done by earthquakes. S.A.C.R.E.D. is a critical partner in the 818 Bricks Program which uses raw, post-production agave fibers, water waste and adobe soil to create bricks that can be used for building local infrastructure like houses and schools as well as identifies infrastructure projects for donation.
