Sold Out $12
When we first started working on ZOX, I did something most people probably tend to shy away from: I got to work with my family. When I turned 18 and moved out, Brandon was only 9 - Jordan close to 5. To say there was a difference is putting it lightly - Brandon was into Pokemon and Jordan was more concerned with getting the pizza Lunchable. Understandable.
Deciding to do something together once Brandon was in high school and Jordan was in middle school was nuts, to be honest. They were obviously still much younger than me, but they had definitely matured. I saw a spark of my own excitement for what was next in them, as well as an almost father-like desire to help my little brothers understand what it meant to run a business as men of character. I wanted to show them that you could do great things without needing to compromise your beliefs - that you could achieve anything you set your heart on if you put others first. It also turns out that's pretty much the only way to run a family business - you have to constantly put aside your own feelings and remember that love will always win.
In This Together is a special Essential for me - it was actually one of the very first ones we designed because I thought it was that important. It's a reminder that we can only be as good as the people we surround ourselves with - we can only achieve greatness together.
I know a lot of you may struggle with this as you might be in a rough spot with those who are closest to you. Maybe your best friend isn't talking to you anymore or one of your parents left when you were younger. Maybe you're not sure who you're 'together' with anymore.
I see you.
I want you to know that no matter the struggle you're going through, you're in this with us. Brandon, Jordan, and I all want the same thing for ZOX - to be a community that's stronger together. My hope for you, no matter where you are, is that you recognize that you are part of something bigger than you'll ever realize. You're wanted, loved, and appreciated just as you. I hope you share this Essential with someone who deserves to know the same.

-We mill our super soft elastic using polyester made from recycled water bottles at Repreve®. Each ZOX takes roughly one 8oz water bottle out of our ecosystem and turns it into a little hug for your wrist - the perfect reminder to help you make it through your day.
-All ZOX include a laser engraved serial number on the tag for authenticity. You'll find a matching serial number engraved on the collectors card that's included.
-We believe kind words can change the world, which is why every elastic ZOX we make is reversible. On one side, you'll find beautiful art from artists all around the globe. On the other, you'll find a wonderful little written reminder. Wear the words on the inside when they're just for you, wear them on the outside when it's something you want to be reminded of each time you look down.
-Given the collectibility of ZOX, each piece we make is hand packed in a small, resealable bag made from recycled material. This bag keeps your favorite ZOX fresh when they're not being used and is helpful to keep them organized alongside their collector cards.
-Handmade with love
-Every order provides a year of clean water to someone in need through our partnership with the Thirst Project.
