(Melbourne, FL – March 9, 2021) – The Coronavirus has wreaked havoc on land but did you know it has also invaded the sea? Our ocean has already been littered with more than 1.56 billion facemasks. All it takes is one piece of trash to choke, tangle, or poison a sea creature. That’s why Sea Threads is removing plastic from the ocean to turn into reusable masks- to protect you and our oceans.
While other brands use recycled plastic to make clothing, Sea Threads is the first to use 100% Certified Ocean Plastic. Each face mask and neck gaiter saves precious marine life while cleaning the ocean. With trusted partners, Sea Threads refines pollution into a product.
- Plastic is collected, broken down, and melted
- Fibers are woven into fabric to be cut, sewn, and printed
- Garments are surprisingly comfortable and soft
The next step for Sea Threads is manufacturing the perfect performance shirt, each made from a half-pound of ocean plastic. They will be launching over Kickstarter on World Ocean Day (June 8th) with a special limited edition style. For more on how to do your part:
