With one life and one planet, we take it as our responsibility to make as big of an impact as possible. Here at Surf Sun Sea, we strive to make quality products our friends would like, have a sweet time, and most importantly continue in our efforts to #respecttheway. Our goal is to halt single-use plastic, spread awareness on global pollution, and restore our aquatic ecosystems. Ultimately more so now than never, our oceans need us to change the way we treat them. The simple idea that a item can spark conversations and serve as a reminder, is why we're here
ONE PURCHASE = ONE POUND
We partner with Plastic Bank®. Plastic Bank empowers the regenerative society. They are helping the world stop ocean plastic while improving the lives of those who help collect it. Plastic Bank builds ethical recycling ecosystems in coastal communities, and reprocesses the materials for reintroduction into the global manufacturing supply chain. Their collectors receive a premium for the plastic they collect, ultimately helping them provide for basic family necessities such as groceries, cooking fuel, school tuition, and health insurance. Plastic Bank’s proprietary blockchain platform secures the entire transaction while providing traceability and transparency. Plastic Bank is currently operating in Haiti, Brazil, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Egypt.
Each month Surf Sun Sea collaborates with and makes a contribution to Plastic Bank. We could not be more thankful for this partnerships as we continue to further the strides in our shared mission to make a global impact.
From our oceans and landmasses to all things inhabiting, it is our mission to remain connected. To forever chase a better understanding of the unknown. To preserve and protect the sustainability of all things, and to do our part in Respecting The Way.
