PLASTIC PANDEMIC

Prevent pandemic litter with a reusable face mask

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, our crews are finding more and more single-use PPE in the ocean during their daily cleanups. Single-use face masks are the most common type of pandemic related waste we find, which is concerning because they post a huge ingestion and entanglement risk for marine life, especially seabirds.

How synthetic fabrics pollute the ocean

Polyester, nylon, and other synthetic fibers are made from plastic and account for about 60% of all the clothing sold worldwide. Unlike your dryer, most washing machines don’t have filters to catch the tiny plastic fibers these materials shed. In fact, microfibers are so small that they can pass through filters in most water treatment centers and enter the ocean in wastewater discharges. If they are captured by a filter, they often enter the environment in another sewage byproduct: fertilizer.

Totally sustainable and fully traceable

GOTS is the highest standard for a finished organic textile because it doesn’t just regulate the cotton itself, but the social and environmental impact of the entire supply chain as well. All of our organic cotton can be traced back to the farms in India where it was grown free from GMO seeds, pesticides, fertilizers, and other toxic chemicals. No toxic chemicals are used to harvest, gin, or clean our cotton and our printing process is free from heavy metals, formaldehyde, plastisol, and other toxic chemicals.
