Kenny’s commitment to the world’s waters is as deep as his commitment to the No Shoes Nation. Having kicked off the No Shoes Reefs project in the St. Johns River, he wanted to find new ways to bring awareness, through the No Shoes Nation and tailgating together – and reached out to ENGEL, the original high performance cooler company, to create tools to make long days at the beach, a game or a stadium show even simpler.
“This was a great way to up the No Shoes Nation tailgating game – and do some good for the No Shoes Reefs. If there’s one thing I know about my fans: they work hard, they play hard, but they also care about the world they live in. This is a way for them to do it all together. To me, that makes tailgating even more awesome: make memories, make a difference.”
ENGEL shares Kenny’s commitment to ocean preservation. Working with the Coastal Conservation Association’s National Habitat Program, Building Conservation Trust, they will donate a portion of the sales of No Shoes Nation-branded products to building artificial reefs in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean, surrounding rivers and waterways.
ENGEL CEO Paul Kabalin agrees, “At ENGEL, we make high performance coolers and 12 volt refrigerators that allow ambulances to store life critical medications, but we also use that technology to keep a family’s drinks and food cold and dry for an entire day. We take it all seriously, because we understand life is where you live it. For many of us, that means on boats and on the water. Like Kenny, we believe in protecting the ocean so it’s here for future generations.”
Beyond Tailgate Packs, comprised of the 23-quart capacity lightweight backpack, two tumblers, and ENGEL’s No Shoes Nation line will also include signature coolers. All made of highly durable materials and construction, easily transportable and capable of keeping things cold all day.
