Why We Started Compass Bracelet

Each day we wake up alive we have decided to make it our personal mission to make the world a better place. Compass Bracelet has given us the outlet to do that. It's an opportunity for us to make a difference in our own lives and many others as well. It also allows us to be a part of something that will continually do good. It's more than a bracelet, it's a reminder, even after the bracelet has left our wrists, to follow our hearts, take chances, find the simple beauties in each day and start a ripple of kindness that will touch more lives than we can imagine.

We want to make an even bigger impact in the world…

For every bracelet sold, 50% of the net profits are donated to the Dave Thomas Foundation. Each Compass Bracelet purchased helps a child find a forever home. 

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is a national nonprofit public charity dedicated exclusively to finding permanent homes for the more than 150,000 children waiting in North America’s foster care systems. Created by Wendy’s® founder Dave Thomas who was adopted, the Foundation implements evidence-based, results-driven national service programs, foster care adoption awareness campaigns and innovative grant-making.

How It's Made

Our rope is custom made from Recycled polyester.

Recycled polyester, also known as rPET, is obtained by melting down existing plastic and re-spinning it into new polyester fiber. This gives a second life to a material that’s not biodegradable and would otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. We take these yarns and braid them into rope.

RPET is almost the same as virgin polyester in terms of quality, but its production requires 59 percent less energy compared to virgin polyester, according to a 2017 study by the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment. WRAP estimates rPET’s production to reduce CO2 emissions by 32 percent in comparison to regular polyester.

Other Benefits Include:

  • Durability - it's super strong
  • Impermeable - it won't absorb water or germs
  • Non Toxic - our rope is free of harmful chemicals
  • Eco friendly - rPET can be indefinitely recycled = being kind to mother nature!

A single bracelet will touch so many lives and when we all pull together who knows what incredible impacts it will have.  


Our Story

  • Jun 24, 2014

    The Compass Bracelet Idea Began

    July 24th, 2014, the idea for Compass Bracelet was conceived. The thought hit me in the shower while I was staying in an Airbnb on a work trip in LA. I called my family as I normally do with my crazy business ideas and they were all like..."This is it, this is the one". After hearing how pumped they were my sister and I began brainstorming how to bring Compass Bracelet to life!

    Started Building Our Website

    The idea of Compass Bracelet swirled around in my head for 2 years before we decided we had to go for it! Now or never and I knew I would never forgive myself if i didn't try.

    Our Website Went Live

    November 24th, 2016, exactly two years and 4 months later we opened for business and went live with our website. This was a super exciting and crazy time for us. We could not wait to get Compass Bracelets out into the world but we also quickly found bugs that had to be fixed. No pain no gain right!
