We love the feel and touch of the golden sand from our beach, we value our clear water oceans, we love our kids and would like to see them growing safely, we feel for our planet ... to show our consideration and bring our own contribution to protecting these values we have introduced our new 7Seas collection, made out of recycled plastic bottles rope.
A company called Morssinkhof Rymoplast collects the bottles from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Denmark and Iceland and transform them into yarns. A European manufacturer takes the yarn and produces the nautical rope. Out of 1 plastic bottle we can make 3 new high-end jewellery bracelets so we can say that 1 plastic bottle generates $41AUD towards donation.
Furthermore, we partner with Tangaroa Blue Foundation, an Australia-wide not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the removal and prevention of marine debris: one of the major environmental issues worldwide. To successfully solve the problem, they created the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI), an on-ground network of volunteers, communities and organisations that contribute data to the AMDI Database, and then work on solutions to stop the flow of litter at the source. The AMDI helps communities look after their coastal environment by providing resources and support programs, and collaborates with industry and government to create change on a large scale.
Old Skipper will donate 20% offtheir 7Seas collection sales to this organisation to support their cleaning events and sponsor their monthly monitoring and the AMDI database across Australia region.
Basically, with every r-PET bracelet you purchase, approx. $14 are going towards their accounts. This way, even if you do not participate physically at these events you can still help clean up the environment we live in and where your kids and grand-kids will be living their lives in the near future.
Stand behind Tangaroa Blue and Old Skipper and by purchasing this bracelet you will increase the frequency of these Australian waters cleaning events.
