The collection is made of eco-friendly materials and features a trucker hat, a sustainable tee and a towel made from recycled plastics. 15% of the net proceeds will go towards helping fund shark conservation efforts worldwide.

Commebting on the new partnership, Casagrande stated:

“I love sharks more than anything. This special collection with PADI has allowed me to fund their protection and change people’s perspectives about their role in the health of our shared blue planet.”

While PADI Worldwide Vice President of Consumer Marketing Lisa Nicklin said:

“PADI and Andy Casagrande have worked closely together to design a sustainable limited-edition collection that gives consumers a more balanced perspective of sharks and inspires them to join us in being united in fins and taking action to protect them. PADI Gear has helped remove more than 60,000Ibs of plastic from the ocean, which will only continue to grow through special collaborations like these.”
