The last weeks and months have shown that the world, or at least part of the world, is finally waking up to the fact that man-made climate change is real.
I believe most people are asking themselves: What can I do? Am I too small to make an impact on anything? And their questions are completely valid. The real shift has to come from policymakers and politicians around the world.
Since most of us will never achieve that level of power there are small choices that we can make during this mass movement that will ripple into a great impact. Simple actions like using reusable water bottles will save 7 plastic bottles a week (x 10 million people for example) and more than 3,64 billion plastic bottles a year from polluting our oceans. This proves the power of the masses.
Thanks to you guys, we have grown quite a bit in the last couple of years. I am always surprised when we do our annual sustainability report and see the results of how using organic cotton, Tencel ™, linen, recycled polyester, recycled fishing nets and plastic from our oceans, recycled cotton, plastic-free packaging, and producing locally in Europe creates such a substantial amount of positive impact.

Freedivers use inward control, discipline and power to descend into the ocean while holding their breath until they resurface.

After Germany’s reunification the sea really started to flourish and soon we saw more and more lights at the other side of our bay and now you can find beautiful sea villages all along its coastline.
