Active + Globe Take Palm Springs

This March Active will introduce Globe Apparel in select stores and online.  To celebrate this launch, Globe  took a group from Active out to the ACE Hotel in Palm Springs for 24 hours of awesomeness in the desert. The stay  kicked off with a poolside reception and brand presentation, followed by dinner at the popular Las Casuelas in downtown Palm Springs, and late night drinks back at the Amigo Room. Day two started out with breakfast at Kings Highway, then ATV off roading in the desert, and ended with lunch by the pool. Big thanks to our friends at Globe for showing us a great time!

The WORKSHOP is an ever-developping mobile art exhibit where your hands, your voice, and our actions come together to build the future we want.

We created the WORKSHOP to be a mouth piece for Active’s brands that give back to our world; brands like OBEYElementGIRL Skateboards and more. Our hope is that through the WORKSHOP we would encourage more people to buy products that serve a purpose… to broadcast tangible change with their voice, and more importantly, their actions.
