SP14SOCIAL_0001_TRAVEL STORY

Do you have any trips planned this season? Nautica has a few simple packing tips that will ensure your luggage is lightweight but still contains all of the necessary items for your vacation.

The Indigo Maxi Dress and Striped Eyelet-Print Dress from Nautica are great for packing because they are so lightweight and versatile. You can layer them over a swimsuit at the beach or wear them to dinner by just adding some bold accessories and strappy heels. Both dresses are form flattering and comfortable, ensuring multiple wears during your trip. Try rolling these items before placing them in your luggage to maximize space.  For men, our bright and bold Stained Glass Swim Trunks are great because they can be worn in many ways. When at the pool, simply swap out your flip flops for a boat shoe, add a button down shirt and you are set for a day of exploring. These trunks are colorful and feature quick dry functionality to keep you comfortable in and out of the water. For all of your vacation needs be sure to check out Nautica.com!

Earth Day

The Earth, which is home to over 7 billion people, is full of natural resources that people have been living off of for thousands of years. Unfortunately, those natural resources that are a part of our everyday lives are being rapidly depleted. Earth Day, celebrated on April 22nd, reminds us all to be aware of the resources we are using and what their effects are on the Earth’s fragile eco-system.

Earth Day, which was started in 1970, has pushed for increased awareness in recent years about climate change, with the 2014 Earth Day campaign being titled “Green Cities”.  The “Green Cities” campaign focuses on helping cities around the world become more sustainable and reduce their carbon footprint. Three of the key areas of focus are the use of energy, green buildings and transportation.

No matter where you live there are ways that you can join the “Green Cities” campaign and make a difference. Conserve energy by turning off the lights when you leave the room, do not run the air conditioner, open a window instead. Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by car pooling, using public transportation or walking/biking to your destinations. While you may not think your individual actions are doing much to help, if everyone takes action the impact is enormous. What can you do to help?
