For the sixth consecutive year, the Everglades-inspired collection will support The Everglades Foundation's mission.
J.McLaughlin is pleased to announce its partnership with The Everglades Foundation for the sixth consecutive year, with an exclusive Everglades Collection and Local & Loyal in-store events.
“J.McLaughlin is thrilled to partner with The Everglades Foundation as it celebrates its 30th year of working to restore and protect America’s Everglades,” says Kevin McLaughlin, Co-Founder, and Creative Director. “The beauty of the Everglades is twofold, as not only is it physically stunning, but also a vital resource for over 9 million Floridians who rely on it for their water supply. We are proud to partner with an organization that has such a profound impact on its communities and are delighted to support the Foundation as it marks its 30th year."
J.McLaughlin’s 2023 Everglades Foundation collection features women’s and men’s apparel and women’s accessories in an exclusive Everglades Foundation print – Mangrove Flower. Inspired by the natural beauty of the Florida Everglades, the print features three bird species found in the Everglades: American Kestrel, Rufous Hummingbird, and Roseate Spoonbill. A total of 15% of proceeds from the collection will benefit The Everglades Foundation.
“For 30 years, our Foundation has focused on a singular mission: To restore and protect America’s Everglades through science, advocacy, and education,” said the Foundation’s CEO Eric Eikenberg. “Since our founding, the commitment and influence of extraordinary partners have helped advance that mission. J.McLaughlin has benefited our organization for six consecutive years by generously donating proceeds of sales from stylish collections featuring exclusive Everglades prints. We are grateful for their partnership and support.”

The Everglades is the largest subtropical wetland in North America, the freshwater supply to 9 million Floridians, and the home to 2,000 species of plants and animals, over 70 of them federally threatened or endangered. Since its founding in 1993, The Everglades Foundation has been the leading champion of efforts to restore and protect the Everglades through the world’s largest ecosystem restoration project.
J.McLaughlin was founded by two brothers, Kevin, and Jay McLaughlin, in 1977. Their goal was to create a new American sportswear brand based in New York and built on several basic concepts: classic clothes with current relevance, sold in a friendly retail environment that has a neighborhood feel. With over 155 retail locations, J.McLaughlin occupies some of the most picturesque main-street real estate in America.
True to the vision of the McLaughlin brothers, the stores have a warmly residential feel and exemplary customer service. “Being a good neighbor” is central to the brand’s approach to business, and J.McLaughlin values being a welcome and active member of each community in which it operates. The company also operates a fully responsive digital flagship at www.jmclaughlin.com. The company is headquartered in Brooklyn, New York.
