  • Sticky Patch Hat, 19. Get sticky in style with this dad hat that you can customize with 8 Power Grip Patches. So cool, you'll want to wear it on even the best hair days.  
  • Power Grip Patches, $15. This set of 8 embroidered collectible patches have grippy backings that take customization to the next level on your Sticky Shop gear – because why the e.l.f. not?

Guided by Porpoise

e.l.f. continues to be guided by “porpoise” with the announcement of a $100,000 donation benefiting the Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC). In addition, proceeds of the Sticky Shop merch, up to $25,000, will also be donated by e.l.f. to WDC to benefit this important cause. e.l.f. expands its purpose to stand with every eye, lip, face, paw and fin and its commitment to do the right thing for people, the planet, furry and finned friends alike. “Our donation will support research and educational programs at WDC to inspire and engage young girls in marine life conservation and help them discover career pathways rooted in STEM,” adds Laurie.

“Hands-on activities ‘stick’ with people and are an incredibly important way to engage students in marine science and conservation,” explains Regina Asmutis-Silvia, Executive Director for WDC North America. “We are so excited to work with e.l.f. to expand our elementary education program, inspiring students to protect the whales and dolphins who help protect our planet.”
