CHARITY / GIVING BACK
Plastic is destroying our oceans. Yet, we continue to pollute our oceans at a scary rate; for every minute that passes one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our oceans. For the sake of our ecosystems, health and future generations, it is our responsibility to safeguard our oceans. To help with this massive effort, we’ve partnered with The Ocean Cleanup donating a percentage for every pair of swim shorts sold. Thereby, working towards a future where plastic no longer pollutes our oceans.
THE OCEAN CLEANUP
The Ocean Cleanup is designing and developing cleanup systems to clean up what is already polluting our oceans and to intercept plastic on its way to the ocean via rivers. Going after the plastic in the garbage patches with vessels and nets would be costly, time-consuming, labor-intensive, and lead to vast amounts of carbon emission and by-catch. That is why The Ocean Cleanup is developing a passive ocean cleanup technology, that moves with the currents – just like the plastic – to catch it. By deploying a fleet of systems, The Ocean Cleanup has estimated to be able to remove 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch every five years.
THE OCEAN CLEANUP´s mission is to remove 90 % of floating ocean plastic, which requires global initiative. With the help and support of individuals, corporations and governments all over the world, they aim to realize the mission where plastic no longer pollutes our oceans.
