SAVE THE SEA during Black Week

ECOMAR + TWOTHIRDS
This year we will turn the black week blue.
We will not only offer you special discounts on our beautiful products, but for each purchase, made by you, we will clean up a part of selected beaches. Our common goal is to collect 100 kg of trash in total.
We at TWOTHIRDS are proud to have partnered with Ecomar and together with your help, we will clean beaches throughout the entire black week.
Our Friends from EcoMar are cleaning beaches since nineteen years and have so far cleaned 17,000 meters of coastline with the help of over 2 million children.
Ecomar was founded by Theresa Zabell in 1998 who decided to dedicate herself to the marine environment. She is a double Olympic medalist in sailing wanted to return to the sea what the sea had given to her. For this goal, she set up the Ecomar Foundation with a small group of altruistic defenders of nature. The Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to education in the care of our seas, their flora and fauna.
The main objective is to raise awareness among children through:
specific programs of coexistence in sport
workshops of care and respect for the planet
responsible food and care of our body
bringing the youngest to ecological values and immerse them in the culture of marine respect in the most natural way possible
Each day we will inform you through our newsletter how many kilos we have achieved so far.
EcoMar, TWOTHIRDS and you will join forces this Black Week to make a difference together for a better future and cleaner beaches.
With much respect from Barcelona,
The people from TWOTHIRDS

The Whale is our DNAFull post
When a blue whale is underwater, its skin seems to merge with the sea it lives in. Only the rings of light dancing over its back allow us to see an animal of impossible proportions. As soon as the whale begins to turn itself towards the seafloor and flicks its tail up, the rest of its body will vanish into the blue. It will be a creature between two worlds, not quite here and not quite there until only the trace of its tail is left behind it like an echo. Whales are works of art.
The Colours of MoroccoFull post
In February, TWOTHIRDS travelled to Morocco. The name is packed with potential, meaning “where the sun sets” in the native Arabic, and to surfers, signposting some of the world’s best lineups. Even so, Morocco still divides opinion. Everybody who had been there already either raved about it, or warned us to stay clear. This made us even more curious as to what we’d find.
Chapter II: Urban CommuteFull post
The morning light streams into the street as wheels spin into motion and people move like water. Finding the path of least resistance. Spokes and gears are in conversation, click-clacking their teeth together. As the gradient grows, thighs burn like candles: warmly. We’re cycling again.

Our team at TWOTHIRDS is not only producing sustainable clothing for you, but also stands completely behind the whole idea and science that for example, the “Fridays for Future” movement and scientists all over the world represent.
