A Sustainable Swiss Brand Turns Ocean Plastic into Socks

CATEGORY: LIFESTYLE

If you are wondering what to do for the planet but feel helpless, support the Teal project.

As much as I agree that we need to change our behavior when it comes to the way we consume, travel and live, I don’t like how often environmental activism turns into something aggressive that repels people.

That’s why I am pleased to support a brand that aims to tackle plastic pollution in a positive way.

Teal Project is a sustainable, environmentally conscious Swiss brand that you can support this Christmas through its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.

Earlier this year, I shared with you a story about a brand that gives work to Indian waste pickers and found a way to turns plastic into something useful and what I like about this project is that they decided to turn ocean plastic into high-performance socks.

I wear their white and black pairs and like how comfortable they are. Especially the black pair is so versatile and stylish that even my husband can wear it with a suit.

Their socks combine sustainable raw materials* with unique performance features and clean, stylish design.

*A blend of different high-performance yarns amounting to a total of 80% recycled content.
