I started this trip with the natural elements behind each Wolven Threads design at the forefront of my mind as before leaving Santa Barbara, I spoke with Kiran about the intent behind each graphic and its link to either the Fire, Earth, Water or Wind element.
At this point I do not have to tell you that Wolven Threads' creates clothing made from recycled plastic bottles, you already know that. What you might not know however, is how all of this plastic waste is impacting our oceans and why our wolfpack is so intent on creating clothing that is environmentally sustainable.
Let me dive right in. Plastic negatively impacts our oceans harming and killing over 267 different species of marine wildlife each year. Thousands of sea turtles, fish, great white sharks and marine mammals are killed from suffocation, ingestion, drowning, and entanglement due to an alarming 8.8 million tons of plastic litter overtaking our ocean surfaces yearly. The scary news is, without taking action by the year 2050, there will be more plastic litter in our oceans than fish.
