Our Sea Clean necklace was designed to raise awareness about our worldwide plastic waste crisis. Wearing one identifies you as a member of the clean sea movement. It signifies your commitment to reduce your single-use plastic.
Best of all, for every Sea Clean necklace purchased, we'll fund the collection of 650 ocean-bound plastic bottles. That's 13 kilograms or 28.66 pounds of single-use plastic!
Join the movement today and tag us on Instagram to be featured @SeaClean.ca. Help us spread our message and together we can make a difference in the battle against plastic pollution!
How it works:
90% of ocean-plastic comes from rivers from the mainland. Through our support of Plastic Bank, we pay collectors in these high impact areas (Ie. Haiti, the Philippines, Indonesia and Egypt) above market rates to collect single-use plastic bottles. The collectors bring this recyclable plastic to recycle depots which is later processed and turned into new products. This in turn creates a circular economy where plastic waste has a value. Not only does this greatly reduce the amount of plastic going into the rivers & oceans, it also provides a steady income for families in impoverished areas.
Our feature charm was inspired by a real turtle named Peanut. As a baby turtle, she became entangled in a six-pack ring which was carelessly discarded. During development, her body was unable to break the plastic, giving her a disfigured hourglass shape. Fortunately little Peanut was saved, and though she has internal issues, she has led a long happy life.
This pendant carries an important message that even a single piece of litter can irreparably change a life. We must not let Peanut's plight be in vain.
Chain material: Sterling silver. Our Peanut charms are made with 50% recycled sterling silver using the centuries-old technique of lost-wax casting. Every charm is handmade in Vancouver, B.C. Canada.
Unisex design - We offer 3 different lengths of chain (18", 20", 22"). The 18" & 20" are Rolo chain, the 22" is a thicker veto box chain (typically) for men.
