Water Wise Movement

3zAS_7l0Y1cxSp-w3idlNkQIZVosunWc4XvtKUjlj8Q

Marley Coffee, Water Wise’ Coffee, and ambassador Rohan Marley are teaming up to spread awareness in order to clean up the rivers in the Sidama region of Ethiopia. With thousands of people relying on the rivers for everyday living, it’s important we each do our part and become educated in the process of coffee production. While coffee is the lifeline of this region, it is also the main source of pollution; Rohan Marley, Water Wise Coffee, and Marley Coffee aim to change this.

This Summer, Marley Coffee will be raising money for four new wet mills that clean dirty water waste found in the rivers from processing coffee cherries. With each cup you buy, 1 cent will be donated to The Water Wise Movement. Cups can be purchased here.

In 2014, Marley coffee was able to raise over $80,000 to Water Wise, this year our family over at Coffee hopes to exceed a courageous goal of $100,000.

To get involved with the movement, you can use the hashtag #WaterWiseMovement on all social networks and tag @MarleyCoffee and @RoMarley in your posts. Social awareness is a beautiful thing, and every mention counts!

It all adds up! Drinking coffee every morning is a household habit. The coffee you drink tastes even better when you can feel good about the difference you’re making at the start of each day.

Recap: Marley Heads to Beach ‘N Boards Fest

CB6B5004

We’re back from the beach after a short but rewarding trip to Ron Jon Surf Shop’s Annual Beach ‘N Boards Fest! It was an honor to have been invited by the team at Ron Jon; once we got the call it was a no brainer that we had to be there in a major way to support. Beach ‘N Boards Fest is Ron Jon’s largest annual event; from Friday to Sunday a number of selected brands showcase beach and board sports all in one venue right behind Ron Jon on the beach. Marley was in good company with brands like RVCA, Billabong, Oakley, Quicksilver, Sun Bum, FOX, and more.

We were psyched to be able to provide a mini ramp along with RVCA and The Collegiate Skate Tour, all thanks to our friends at Instaramp. Big up to our Team Marley ambassadors, Shama Beckfort, Alexis Rivera, and Karl Watson who came along for the ride and repped Marley Skate through Cocoa Beach.

Sundance Film Festival Selects

Sundance Film Festival  is now in full effect. Since 1985 the festival has highlighted the best of the best of storytellers and beyond. Park City, Utah will be filled with the film industries most creative indie directors, videographers and actors from January 22nd to February 1st. 

While we’re not there to witness it all first hand this time around, we’ve compiled a list of a few films we’re psyched about. Check them out below!

Dope – Shot in Inglewood, California, this film blends together an interesting fusion of hip-hop, drugs, and the all mighty Bitcoin. A$AP Rocky makes his proper acting debut.

Being Evel –  This film is about Evel Knievel, an American daredevil who attempted 75 ramp to ramp deathly jumps which shot him to stardom. Every child born in the 70’s new his name and wanted to mimic his greatest, so this film will be a great blast in the past.

Cronies – Filmed in 2014 and produced by Spike Lee, this film features three friends struggling to maintain their relationships as they enter adulthood, a growing pain all of us can relate to.

James White – This film is about a troubled man and his journey surviving in New York city, while balancing a positive relationship with his mother. With a feature from rapper Kid Cudi of course we are excited about this film.

Digging for Life – A “boys will be boys” type film set in East LA which showcases a couples juggle with young parenthood. While trying to make ends meet the couple picks up house sitting for a gig and winds up surprised at what they find at the residence.

Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck - This documentary features never-before-seen visuals, interviews and home movies from the world of Kurt Cobain.

Consumer Electronics Show 2015

What – a – week. After much preparation and hard work gearing up for the largest consumer electronics trade show in the world, our team is back from Las Vegas and ready to rock. The week long show was a mix of party meets presentation to show the latest House of Marley products to be available in 2015. Updated technology, a wide range of new color-ways, and fashion forward designs are just a few of what you’ll be seeing in 2015 and CES was our first chance to debut it all.

In true Marley fashion, we brought live music each day to break up the busy schedule and give everyone a place to relax (..or turn up, given the moment) at the half way mark of the show. Daniel Bambaata Marley, Johnny Osbourne, Shine Head, and Sister Nancy made up the legendary line-up that had the crowd vibing from Tuesday to Friday. Special thanks to LargeUp, DJ Gravy, and DJ Synapse for keeping the music flowing through our One Foundation speakers the entire time.

Speaking of the One Foundation…House of Marley took home the ‘Best In Home Audio’ award thanks to Twice Magazine.

To add to the mix, we had custom jersey’s being made for our VIPs all week thanks to the team over at Fly Nowhere, giving the perfect touch to the Marley experience.

Big up to everyone who helped make this CES a win! 20-15, we are ready.
