Sea Threads has announced the first-ever clothing line made from 100% recycled ocean plastic is set to launch on June 8th, 2021, i.e. World Oceans Day.
The launch of its performance shirts is via a Kickstarter campaign, with each shirt costing US$35/~£24/€28. The shirts are fully certified for being made from 100% recycled ocean plastic, with each shirt made from 1lb/~0.5kg of ocean plastic.
Commenting on the new campaign and shirts, Sea Threads CEO and Founder Dylan Cross stated:
“The best way to get plastic out of the ocean is to make sure there is a strong enough demand for products that can be made from it. We are rolling up our sleeves, literally, here at Sea Threads, to make that happen.”
The recycling of ocean plastics not only helps clean our oceans but also reduces the production of new plastics, with all the environmental impact associated with it.
“Not only is this recycling… Using ocean plastic also removes the need for fossil fuels and energy in producing new plastic. With so much in our oceans why not put it to good use instead of continuing to make more?”
(Remember: This is a crowdfunding campaign, so you are helping to fund the development of a project, but not a finished product. Please make sure you research the project before spending any money.)
