T-shirt for our oceans
by Teal Project
At TEAL PROJECT, we view plastic that is floating in the ocean or could theoretically end up there as a valuable resource that can be collected and recycled into high-quality fibres. In this way, we not only play a part in protecting our oceans, but also reduce the demand for new plastics.
We spent two years developing our first product - performance socks - and finding suppliers in Europe to turn ocean waste and recycled plastic from land into high-quality fibres.
OUR YARN - SEAQUAL® YARN
💙 With 1 kg of SEAQUAL® YARN we reduce the waste in the oceans by about 600 grams! 💙
The waste is collected by fishermen and local environmental protection associations. These are different types of material that are sorted and fed into a recycling cycle. A new raw material is created from the PET plastic share of the total waste volume.
SEAQUAL® YARN contains about 10 % of plastic waste from the sea, while the remaining 90 % comes from recycled PET from the land.
CLOSE AND SOCIAL PARTNERS ARE IMPORTANT TO US!
That’s why we rely on reliable partners nearby. Our manufacturer in Portugal and our great distribution partner Züriwerk - a non-profit organisation for people with disabilities - are the foundation for our products.
💙 Developed in Switzerland & produced in Portugal 💙
We want to expand our range to recycle even more plastic. We are passionate about working with 💙 YOUR HELP 💙 to create our first performance t-shirt made from cotton and recycled plastic from the land and ocean.
💙 As co-founder of TEAL and professional snowboarder, David Habluetzel ensures that functionality is at the forefront of our products 💙.
Our performance t-shirt is made from 67% organic cotton and 33% SEAQUAL® YARN. Not only does the 33% protect the ocean, but the synthetic yarn also better regulates moisture and keeps your t-shirt fresh for a long time.
Thanks to the sporty fit, our T-shirt is the perfect companion for your daily adventures.
Available in Ocean Blue and Coral Red, as well as in two sizes S/M and L/XL 💙 The shirt is made of a synthetic yarn.
TEAL x rrreefs
💙 We want healthy oceans full of life! We want coral reefs to survive! That’s why we are building a coral reef in the Philippines together with rrreefs. 💙
rrreefs is a Swiss organisation that restores artificial reefs using 3D-printed building blocks, creating habitats for millions of marine species. ______________________
