Each piece sold from our Into the Blue Collection will directly recover and finance the cleanup of 2 kg (4.4 lbs) of ocean plastic. That is equivalent to 160 plastic bottles' worth of ocean-bound plastic.
Furthermore, each piece sold from our Into the Wild Collection plants 10 trees and is estimated to remove 125 kg (275.5 lbs) of CO₂ annually.

Ocean plastic cleanup
Plastic accumulating in our oceans and on our beaches has become a global crisis. At current rates, plastic is expected to outweigh all the fish in the sea by 2050. Our cleanup efforts take place in both Africa and Asia. The work is carried out by Empower in collaboration with local partner organizations.
Empower operates in more than 15 countries, incentivizing plastic waste collection, kick-starting waste management systems, and building transparency in the supply chain. All plastic cleanup is carried out by local workers living in underprivileged communities.
By putting a value on the plastic, the waste pickers are given an opportunity to multiply their regular income, which translates into better health, better education for their children, and security.

The degradation and loss of forests threaten the survival of many species. Through deforestation, humans have destroyed and fragmented the habitats of panthers, tigers, jaguars, and leopards.
Deforestation and forest degradation impact the lives of 1.6 billion people whose livelihoods depend the forest. One billion of them are among the world's poorest.
Eden Reforestation Projects reduces extreme poverty and restores healthy forests by employing local people to plant millions of trees every year. They have more than 280 project sites in 10 countries.
