We care about the oceans. 💙 Happy World Oceans Day! 💙 Why should we care about the oceans? In 30 years time, there will be more PLASTIC than FISH in the seas. Oceans are fundamental to human life: 🌊 The air we breathe: the ocean produces half of the world’s oxygen and absorbs 50 times more carbon dioxide than our atmosphere. 🌊 Climate regulation: covering 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, the ocean transports heat from the Equator to the poles, regulating our climate and weather patterns. At least 800 amazing species are now in perils due to plastic pollution that makes their way into the oceans every day. Plastics have been found in 100% of marine turtles, 59% of whales, 36% of seals, and 40% of seabirds examined. Plastics trashed everyday, does not disappear in the bins, they have a life longer than our own, our kids and our grandkids. We know there are so many important issues in the world right now, and at Ipseity, we’re really trying to help at our own level 😇 We are working on an action plan to help this ocean cause at the moment, so stay tuned for future announcements! Actively looking for artists/designers who would be happy to create one-off pieces made out of waste found on beaches? (Please contact us). In the meantime, we would like to remind you that we are still planting a tree for each item sold online on weareipseity.com as well as donating 10$ to @colorofchange for #blm during the whole month of June. Please help us make a good action today, have a look at our ethical and sustainable pieces created by our amazing designers 👏 Sustainability x Ipseity We care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we’re partnering with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every product sold. We believe sustainability is a way of life and fashion can be a part of it too. This is why we curate for you ethical and sustainable designers who can give you genuine reasons to buy fashion. You have the right to know how a design was made, using which materials and where in the world. This is the transparency that everyone now needs to make the right choices towards a better future. By shopping from small and independent brands, you can have the privilege to benefit from a total transparency as the designers source, design and manufacture locally. Since sustainability can be difficult to decipher, we tried to make it as sexy and meaningful as possible for you; our products are now categorised under four ethical categories that we value: Made Locally, One-Off Pieces, Sustainable and Upcycled.
