The Best Pool Float That Will Help You Step Up Your Instagram Feed Game. This Is How You Can Support Black-Owned Businesses In 2021

 If you are fortunate enough to have a pool or have unlimited access to one, you will know that having a summer gathering with your best mates is much more enjoyable in the water. You probably already know that pool parties require the right amount of space, delicious cocktails, trendy swimsuits, and of course, the cutest pool floats. You know exactly what I am talking about. The ones that not only manage to gain a ton of likes on Instagram but also help you relax and have fun in the water.

What if I told you that you can impress your friends (and neighbors!) and support the first black-owned pool inflatable startup at the same time? Keep on reading.

I have lived my whole life close to the sea, cute pool floats were a must amongst us kids. Later on, we kept this tradition going ( yes, we still hunt down the most unique designs every spring and summer). Let's not forget that one time we decided to place an actual floating pool in our living room and almost ruined half of our furniture after a few not-so-careful attempts to have fun in it. The point is I am obsessed with these adorable floats and when it comes to pool parties - not during the pandemic of course- I am more than ready to recreate the best moments of my childhood with some unique inflatable floats.



Pool floats have been a huge Instagram trend for years, and they aren't going out of style any time soon. But we are not kids anymore. There are many more factors we should consider before making our decision. You all know how huge I am on sustainability, upcycling, and supporting small businesses. I highly encourage you to stock up on the Alma Ocean floats so you can rock this summer and still support the cultural-inspired styles made for you to tap into a new look and mood. I rounded up all the info for you.

Sustainability, Diversity & Creativity

Danielle Hodge, the founder of Alma Ocean, enjoys pool floats so much she decided to create her own. "I searched high and low, extensively, without success and couldn’t find any floats that appealed to my personal taste" she mentioned. "I wanted a product that spoke to my culture. I wanted to see and feel inspired by the inflatable designs, so I created my own!”. So in 2020, during the global pandemic, she decided to create her own line, aiming to inspire women -and men- of color to enjoy their time in the water and celebrate their culture at the same time. Sounds great, right? Well, there is more.


She offers upcycling services to transform your old products into one-of-a-kind  accessories. You are not confident enough in the water? No prob, you can find many resources to help you enjoy your days at the ocean -or pool- in the safest way possible.

How can you support this black-owned business?

Danielle Hodge is crowdfunding with IFUNDWOMEN the entire month of November to raise funds before her launch in summer 2021. Let's all honor creativity and diversity- You can thank me later after you have the most trendy pool party of all times.
