How did it started ?
Introducing Mission Blue birth starting with a little story....
Some crazy facts !
Over 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently litter the ocean
Trash accumulates in 5 ocean garbage patches, the largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, located between Hawaii and California. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source, and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.
8 Million tons of plastic waste into the ocean/year
206 kg/sec of plastics waste into the ocean
90% of wastes cominf from Asian rivers
6 times more plastics than planktons
1 butt pollutes 500 litters
Plastic kill 1 million animals each year
Ocean garbage patches are vast and dispersed
Ocean currents concentrate plastic in five areas in the world: the subtropical gyres, also known as the world’s "ocean garbage patches". Once in these patches, the plastic will not go away by itself. The challenge of cleaning up the gyres is the plastic pollution spreads across millions of square kilometers and travels in all directions.
we'll do anything in our power to ensure they don't happen. And if they do, we'll tell you about it right away. You have our word!
Our recycled ocean plastic and plastic bricks fabric isn't a readily available material. In fact, it will be produced specifically for Mission Blue thanks to our partnerships with ByFusion and ICON who help us making your project real.
Being a global brand and a global campaign, there are certain challenges with international shipping. These have already been addressed but be aware there may be duties and/or taxes from customs in your home country.
