Stories that Give Me Hope.
Stories that make me cry
what is this moisture coming from my eyes
my eyeballs are leaking
The last one though
To raise awareness of the effects of plastic waste in our world’s oceans, all the pieces in G-STAR RAW collection contain recycled plastics. Plastic is a major threat to the health of our oceans due to the rotating water currents in each of the major ocean systems, which accumulate debris fragments into expansive patches. Plastics break down into smaller segments upon long-term exposure to water as well as ultra-violet radiation. Unfortunately, these segments are unusable within the environment, as no natural organism can break down these synthetic molecules. Modifications to the chemical composition of newly manufactured plastic may change this, but until then, conservation initiatives like this G-STAR collection may be the only plan of action to clean our oceans.
