10+ Beauty and Fashion Brands Helping Save The Oceans

Fashion Brands Helping Save The Oceans

By Noa Ben-Moshe

Water is vital to life. The planet we live on is mainly water, and so are our bodies, so you’d think water would be something we would all treat with respect, right? Unfortunately, that’s not the case.

In today’s world, this truly essential resource is getting increasingly polluted by agriculture, fashion, chemical and other industries. As a result, close to 800 million people don’t have access to safe drinking water, and every year 8 million tons of waste end up in the oceans.

This pollution of the oceans is a great danger to all animals, including us. If we don’t make some serious changes now, by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the sea and the availability of clean water will get lower and lower.

Some brands have tried to help the water pollution situation by creating fashion from ocean plastic, but much to our horror, clothing made from recycled bottles, (as well as polyester, nylon, acrylic, and other plastic based fibres) end up shedding microparticles of plastic when they’re washed. These end up not only in our waterways, but in the fish we eat, and even the ‘healthy’ sea salt we use!

It’s all a bit depressing, so for this International Water Day, I decided to focus on the positive side of things: meet the change-makers who are taking action to clean up and conserve our water supplies. But if you’d like to know how YOU can make a difference to our waterways, click here to see some everyday tips you should be following.

1. Parley for the Oceans+ Stella McCartney

What happens when Adidas and Stella McCartney team up with Parley for the Oceans? A gorgeous, UltraBOOST X shoe featuring Parley Ocean Plastic™, is what. This is a high performance yarn made from recycled ocean plastic. Although Adidas + Stella paired up to create sports clothes from the stuff too, we’re only into the shoes, since they don’t need to be washed, like, ever – their sports clothes, on the other hand, only contribute to more microplastic pollution every time they’re laundered.

2. Pinch of Colour

Ever heard of ‘waterless beauty’? Me either, until now! Beauty industry veteran Linda Treska founded Pinch of Colour with the intention to conserve the world’s most precious natural resource – water- and to donate to those in need of it. Her gorgeous colour cosmetics contain soothing botanicals, nourishing natural oils and skin-loving fruit butters – and zero water!

3. Relevé Fashion

Relevé Fashion is a sustainable and transparent e-shop that encourages us to purchase with purpose, supporting designers who are doing good, while at the same time responding to some of our world’s most urgent challenges. For example, shoppers are able to support Global Citizen with their every purchase, at no extra cost. Among the global issues that Global Citizen specifically supports are Water and Sanitation. Relevé Fashion is also partnering with Ocean 5, too!

4. Pacifica

One of the largest vegan, non-toxic beauty brands on the market, Pacifica is making a positive change towards cleaning up our waterways by donating a portion of their profits to supporting clean water charities. So, whenever you buy a Pacifica product, your money goes to a very good cause!

5. NUUWAI

NUUWAI is one of our Eluxe award winners (as the best vegan brand) for a good reason: they are doing incredible things for the planet by using vegan, sustainable materials like apple fibres to create their super stylish handbags. But what made me add the brand to this article is the fact they are working with Ecoalf: the lining of their bags consists of 100% recycled plastic bottles and fishing nets, which are being fished out of the oceans as part of the Ecoalf Foundation’s “Upcycling the Ocean” project.

6. Swarovski

Crystal maker Swarovski has proudly launched their charitable Waterschool collection, created with the aim of helping raise awareness of water issues around the globe, as well as to raise funds for the Swarovski Waterschool program. The Swarovski Waterschool was launched in 2000, empowering young children across the globe with the knowledge and resource to become water ambassadors and change agents. Through the program, Swarovski aims to inspire present and future generations to better understand and practice sustainable water use, as you can see below.

7. Aveda

Not only has hair care brand Aveda started creating its shampoo bottles from recycled ocean plastic, but they’ve also partnered with charity: water, one of the leading non-profit organizations dedicated to providing access to clean, safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) to people in developing countries.

8. Sperry

Well loved footwear brand Sperry is launching an ongoing sustainability platform called Sperry For Good, and is starting the initiative with a brand new ocean-saving shoe. They have teamed up with the Waterkeeper Alliance, the largest and fastest growing non-profit solely focused on clean water to create a shoe made with BIONIC® material, which is spun from plastic recovered from marine and coastal environments. Together they want to help combat the ocean’s plastic epidemic, build awareness, share sustainable solutions and engage consumers and partners to create change together.

9. Outerknown

There are loads of surf brands helping to save the oceans, as you can see here, but Outerknown is different: it’s co-owned by super famous surfer Kelly Slater, and makes stuff that goes beyond eco-friendly surf gear, such as this 100% organic cotton dress below, and loads of other cool, stylish clothing for men and women.

But let’s talk about their ethics: the brand’s partnership with Fair Trade USA ensures safe, healthy and prosperous working conditions to the people that create the label’s apparel. For every product sold, a percentage goes right back to the workers who made them. As for the oceans, 100% of all profits from OuterKnown’s #ITSNOTOK tee shirts go to support the  Ocean Conservancy charity, whose mission is to clean and protect our oceans for future generations.

10. Green People

It’s a fact that sunscreens are destroying our coral reefs and polluting our oceans, so it’s essential to choose a non-toxic one. Luckily, Green People make a wonderful, certified organic sunscreen that can be used everyday, and is practically pure enough to eat! It doesn’t block pores, so is perfect for using on both the body and face.

11. Ocean 5

By harvesting plastic waste from our oceans and using advanced technology and responsible manufacturing, Ocean 5 have created premium products that incorporate both style and comfort whilst reducing their impact on the planet. Specifically, the brand works with Plastic Bank in order to harvest plastic pollution from our seas, and to date, they’ve removed and recycled over 25,000 plastic bottles from the ocean.

Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Magazine asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

Eluxe Magazine is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.

The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include but are absolutely not limited to: DoubleClick, ShareThis, Skimlinks, Google, Taboola and more.
