Sustainability Story

Cape Clasp was founded in 2013. We created a bracelet shaped like Cape Cod and developed a non-profit partnership model with the CC National Seashore. We shared our story on social media, and after selling out of our first batch, started to think of ways to expand our line and support more non-profit causes. Today, Cape Clasp is a purpose-driven brand with a mission to #makewaves for marine life causes. For each of our designs, we partner with a marine life organization and donate 15% of our profits. Over the past few years, we are proud to say our non-profit donations totaled over $170,000.
