For every T-shirt order made during our ‘One Tee One Kg’ promotion, a kilogram of ocean-bound plastic is recovered and recycled - the equivalent of 50 plastic bottles. We count the orders and fund the plastic recovery that is done through our friends at Plastic Bank. The offer is enabled automatically on all restore t-shirt purchases, so all that's left for you to do is is to rock the restore t-shirt that you buy and help spread the word of #noplanetb. Find out when the next One Tee One Kg weekend is on by following u’s on Instagram or read on to learn more about how the plastic is recycled and used.
From discarded ghost nets to minuscule microplastics released during washing, our planet is facing a plastic crisis. 8 million plastic pieces find their way to our seas every single day. That's why every product on Restore is made from natural materials, powered by renewable energy and delivered in plastic-free packaging. Using natural materials means no nasty plastic microfibres are released into the ocean when washed. And with One Tee One Kg, there's another positive way for you to contribute to the solution.
Our friends at Plastic Bank have removed over 15 million kilograms of ocean-bound plastic. They have recovered enough plastic to circle the Earth with straws 2,700 times.
Plastic Bank projects pay collectors to remove waste from coastal communities in Haiti, the Philippines, Indonesia and Brazil. Their collectors gather plastic waste from streets, households, and informal dump sites, properly disposing of plastic waste before it ends up in the ocean. The plastic is recycled and reborn as Social Plastic to be remade into new products as part of a closed-loop supply chain.
As well as stopping plastic waste from polluting our oceans, Plastic Bank are a social enterprise building a regenerative society with their ethical recycling ecosystems. Find out more here.
