Okay, I need to be transparent about something. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to take a nap inside a koala’s pouch. They seem warm and cozy and just straight up awesome and I would absolutely love to try it out some day. I will curl up on a sunny afternoon, cocooned in my personal marsupial sleeping bag and slowly drift asleep as the sounds of the Australian wilderness hum in the background. And all will be well.
While I have yet to fulfill this lifelong dream, we here at Aura Bora have come up with the next best thing: Guava Eucalyptus! An ode to our pouched pals, this flavor is of the highest koala-ty. A perfect harmony of uniquely sweet guava and refreshingly minty eucalyptus will transport you to the land down under, where juicy fruit rivers flow, long branches of eucalyptus leaves whisper in the breeze, and koalas snooze under guava pink skies.
Plus, look up to those spindly tree tops and you’ll spot our newest big-eared fluffy friend, Nigel! Now, while we’d love for you to catch Nigel gallivanting through the outback, Nigel spends most of his time snoozing — an admirable 18 to 22 hours a day! Nevertheless, Nigel’s essence can generally be described in one simple word: eucalyptus. 3 meals a day and accompanying snacks? Eucalyptus. Odor wafting off his fur? Eucalyptus. Preferred bed quality? Eucalyptus. Astrological sign? Eucalyptus sun, eucalyptus rising!
Aaaand, you know what comes next….. to help protect Nigel and his sunny homeland, 20% of Guava Eucalyptus sales will be donated to our newest partner, Re:wild! Started by the Global Wildlife Conservation and Leonadro DiCaprio, Re:wild works to rehabiliate wildlife and areas with high levels of biodiversity. Following the 2020 Australian bushfires, Re:Wild partnered with local Australian organizations to reforest Australian ecosystems in critical condition, reduce future threats of extreme wildfires, and replenish dwindling keystone species (like marsupials!) through breeding and reintroduction programs. And Re:wild’s work isn’t just limited to Australia; in 2020 alone, Re:Wild partnered with over 200 local nonprofits across 50 countries. To date, they’ve helped conserve over 45 million acres of wilderness AND 835 threatened species. Needless to say, we’re impressed.
So sit back, bask in beams of sun, and crack open a fresh cold can of Guava Euc. It’ll be sure to tingle your taste buds. If your fingies and toes start to tingle too, there’s no need to worry; this is simply the beginning of your transformation into your final koala form. Now your days, too, will be spent stuffing cheeks full of juicy fruits and snoozing in eucalyptus hammocks. And all will be well.*
