The Ocean: Life and Livelihoods
Today we recognise, advocate, highlight and act to help slow down global warming, overfishing, industrial coastal developments and pollution. Overconsumption due to the increasing human population and with marine eco-systems declining, our ocean is being threatened more than ever and tackling the climate crisis is becoming a greater challenge.
Did you know?
The ocean covers 70% of the planets oxygen, it is home to most of the earth's biodiversity, and is the main source of protein for more than a billion people around the world... Sadly 90% of big fish populations are depleted, 50% of coral reefs destroyed. This is why we need to protect, preserve and sustain the ocean".
WHAT WE DO
At Cloth & Co. our mission is to find ways to prevent harm and to help protect our planet throughout the entire process, from seed to stitch, from us to you. We care about the people, we care about the planet, we care about what the future holds and we also care about being passionate and active citizens.
Natural fibres are at the heart of everything we do; meaning no micro plastics and no harmful chemicals. Our products are timeless and designed to last. We believe one of the greatest impacts we can have is to ensure you can wear our pieces for years not weeks. We source the highest quality materials that are 100% natural, our cotton is organically farmed and we are working on our next steps towards entirely regenerative farming for the future. All of our pieces are biodegradable so that in the end, it can be recycled, repurposed or decomposed ensuring it does not end up in the ocean.
