The Plastic Pollution Problem

We are on a mission. A mission to clean up our oceans and waterways. A mission to preserve the health of our planet. And the great news is that YOU can help.

 

Did you know that Americans throw away 35 BILLION plastic bottles every year? And that it can take up to 1,000 years for plastic to degrade? 

 

Every item that we produce keeps, on average, 6 plastic bottles out of an ocean or landfill. That means that not only can you look and feel great wearing our apparel for all of your active pursuits, but you can rest easy knowing that YOU are making a difference.
