- SAVING THE OCEAN
Only 9% of all plastic today is reused. The rest end up in landfills or worse, the ocean. So we decided to do something about it, by turning post-consumer plastic bottles into ultra soft, fashionable and eco-friendly clothing. Same quality as other apparel, just sustainable.
Our production process follows strict international standards and is certified in line with the Global Recycled Standard (GRS). The GRS is an international standard with strict requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices and chemical restrictions.
Our production process releases 55% fewer carbon emissions, uses 50% less energy and 20% less water than producing virgin polyester, which is the fabric used in about 60% of all clothes today.
Oceanness clothing is also a good alternative to cotton clothes. While cotton is degradable, it takes up a lot of scarce cropland, is pesticide-heavy and extremely water-intensive. Our production process uses 99% less water than cotton and does not occupy cropland from farmers or animals.
We want to enable wavemakers like yourself to reduce, reuse and recycle by promoting circular fashion and a closed loop system.
Recycled polyester is a very durable fabric. By creating clothes of high quality, we help reduce the need to buy new clothes.
Making clothes from discarded plastic bottles means we can reuse plastic that would otherwise end up in landfills, or worse, the ocean.
Oceanness clothes are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, without being mixed with other materials. This makes Oceanness clothes recyclable, effectively closing the loop.
Not only are our swimwear, hoodies and t-shirts made from recycled plastic, we also pull plastic waste equivalent to 100 plastic bottles from the ocean and coastlines for every clothing item purchased. We pay a premium for discarded plastic to ensure a sustainable income for plastic collectors.
