Protect What You Love
By Lutz Schwenke on⟵ Back to Stories
Our team at TWOTHIRDS is not only producing sustainable clothing for you, but stands completely behind the “Fridays for Future” movement and scientists all over the world.
The climate is changing and we need to protect what we love!
On our “summer SUP team session” and beach clean-up, we were very happy to see that this particular beach did not have a lot of rubbish to be collected. But unfortunately, not every beach, every sea and every country are this lucky.
As we wrote in the “Maldives Collection” blog post, we can say from our own experience that small island states and/or developing countries are especially affected.
With a fast arriving globalisation, lack of resources and mostly an almost unsustainable amount of tourists visiting these beautiful island paradises with their small landmass and short waterways, islands and their surrounding oceans are among the most vulnerable places for pollution.
We have a deep connection to the oceans not only through our items, named after islands around the world, so we were very happy to have found CommonSeas and their Clean Blue Alliance project. This special project is supporting islands in countries such as the Maldives, Greece and Indonesia with waste management, innovative reduce/reuse/recycle projects, education, awareness and other solutions.
Find more information about their mission and success here.
Please help us create awareness and change within people, governments and the tourism industry in order to protect the environment.
With much respect,
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.
