From the farm to the factory to our closets, we all have an opportunity to reduce our impact on the environment. Start asking questions about your clothes, and other specialty store products, in the same way you ask about the food you eat, and you can help fundamentally change the way clothing is made.
Companies like Prana and Toad & Co who use organic cotton, recycled polyester, recycled wool, and hemp. Companies such as KUHL, who takes out all outdoors with their superiorly made, rugged clothing, invests each year in a variety of charities that support our environment and climate change research. Tasc, who is first to the market on creating performance wear using a natural fiber, bamboo.
Island Pursuit is proud to work with so many companies devoted to the sustainable clothing movement. But, it's not just in the clothing you buy, it's in other products as well. For example, Florida-based 4Ocean bracelets are working tirelessly to clean our oceans, with boats out in the Atlantic Ocean seven days a week pulling plastics and other debris from our ocean. Each $20 bracelet you purchase, made from recycled plastic, represents a pound of plastic debris pulled from our ocean.
You can even make a difference in the sun tan lotion products you buy. Stream2Sea, another Florida based company has developed skincare products without the harmful ingredients that are detrimental to fish, coral and other ocean wildlife.
The more we know, the better choices we can make to help the environment.
