I have a recurring dream where I am scuba diving and I come across this wall of floating trash that blocks out the sun and is filled with dead animals, and I start to get sucked in like there's some sort of gravitational pull and I get caught in it and it starts consuming me. I have different variations where there's a shark stuck in there too who probably hasn't eaten in a long time and he's trying to get me, or one where my oxygen tank is starting to run low and I can't get untangled and get to the surface. The garbage patches are a serious problem, it hurts my heart to think about it and it infects my dreams. One of my stresses about creating a product is thinking that I'm just adding to the waste and obsessive consumerism and making yet another thing that will eventually end up in a landfill or garbage patch floating around trapping sea turtles. I have a fear of trash and I did a lot of research to make this brand as thoughtful and eco-friendly as possible so that I can sleep better at night. And yes, I did it for you too. Having more eco-conscious options is always great. I found a magical fabric that is recycled from nylon fishing nets that were removed from our oceans. This way I am not adding, I am reusing and repurposing what is already out there. And, I am supporting Aquafil Group - a company who has become a leader in sustainability and is entirely about being part of the solution. I want to be part of the solution to. Spreading awareness and doing the occasional beach clean up is great, for now, but eventually it will not be enough. Something like 640,000 tons of ghost fishing nets are abandoned out in the oceans each year? Horrific.
