Our aim is to replace 10,000 single-use plastic bottles by reusables and remove 100,000kg of plastic from the seas, by the end 2021. That is one busy year ahead of us!!
By buying products in reusable containers, you can join us on our journey of cleaning up our planet. We remove 5 plastic bottles from the ocean for every product you purchase from our shop. The future is Circular, and we're here to prove it!
The only way to achieve change is to collaborate. To achieve our bold goals, we partner with following organisations:
Together with Plan A we measure, reduce and offset our business carbon footprint whilst creating an employee culture of sustainability.

As a Worlds first Ocean Plastic Offsetting (OPO) provider, they now operate in five countries with ongoing coastal clean up and educational events in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, UK and Brazil.

GREEN TECH ALLIANCE
We’re a member of The GreenTech Alliance, which brings together globally active impact-driven businesses, working towards sustainability and fighting climate change.
We collaborate with Fairphone, a company that believes that a fairer electronics industry is possible. We’re proudly using Fairphone smartphones, which are built to the most sustainable and fair standards known to us, and therefore perfectly match our company’s values.
Sustainability has many faces! Makers Unite make our face masks and Denim Totes, out of denim cut-offs that would otherwise end up in trash. The bottom of our denim totes was once a life vest helping people reach safety. Now, upcycled into a circular packaging, it is helping connect creative newcomers (often with a refugee background) to the job market, leveraging their talents to build a new life in the Netherlands.
