January Newland's Family Story
My husband James and I met 7 years ago and fell in love through our shared love of outdoor adventuring, surfing, the ocean, and obsession with dogs. We spent our first years together traveling often to my birthplace of Hawaii, and around California’s wilderness as much as possible. We are owners of Wild Island Collective, a Plant Shop & Wellness Studio here in San Diego, which we opened just last year. Up until a few weeks ago, we were parents to 3 rescue mutts (one brought home from Fiji, where we lead yearly wellness retreats) and 2 chickens. But on our biggest parenting adventure yet, we welcomed Jack Kaimana to the world late in March, and are beyond thrilled to start sharing the adventures with him.
Passionate about ocean and wilderness conservation, our shop focuses on green products and reducing our use of disposable and plastic items, and we are dedicated to continuing to spread the word about reducing our footprint and creating a better world for our kids. It’s why we are so excited to be a part of the Bumbleride family, for their commitment to creating products that are OEKO-TEX certified and use recycled materials, AND are ready to take on all the adventures on our list!
