Tuesday, July 4, 2017 — Waste Free Oceans proudly presents its first collection of ocean awareness clothing. Shirts, sweaters and bags designed to raise awareness of floating plastic in our oceans, while also keeping taste and style in mind, are now available in an online store at www.wastefreeoceans.org. Using all organic materials, Waste Free Oceans - a foundation that collects and upcycles floating ocean plastic - put emphasis on clothing that is fashionable and carries the message of ocean protection.
To this purpose Waste Free Oceans teamed up with Teemill, who prints, packages and posts all clothing orders. Items are made from certified organic cotton or bamboo in an ethically accredited wind-powered factory and can be traced from ‘Seed to Shop’, with proceeds going towards WFO’s mission of collecting and transforming floating ocean debris. WFO Founder Bernard Merkx highlights: "What better way to do good and look good at the same time? This collection shows that not only is marine sustainability critical, but is also the interest of conscious fashionistas."
While this first collection is all in-house, WFO welcomes potential collaborations with designers wanting to add their creative touch. Store visitors can also design their unique clothing items, donating to WFO by wearing a style they adore.
Looking great while doing good - the way to go.
