We want to make a difference, not just a profit. Ocean plastic is a Great Lakes, United States and global problem, and some areas are more impacted than others. We want to make an impact in our local community of Muskegon, Michigan, to the Great Lakes surrounding this beatify state to the oceans we love and need to protect.
10% of all Clean Ocean Clothing sales goes to education and clean-up of plastics. From our first day in business, we has donated 5% of all sales to the Plastic Pollution Coalition. Together with your support, we have given over $500 to help protect the ocean and water that we all love. We have recently donated over $250 in apparel for organizations like Sustainable Cebu and The Ocean Run.
As a company owned and run by a handful of Michigan natives, it’s our wish that everything we source be as local and sustainable as possible. We design and print all of our products right here in Michigan, and source our garments through Alternative Apparel®. We use Ecoenclose for all our packaging to reduce our carbon footprint.
Our goal is to donate $10,000 by 2020. By the end of 2018, I am hoping to have helped ban all plastic straws from restaurants in my community..
