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.

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.
Protect What You LoveFull post
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.
