A proactive, sustainable solution to the ocean plastic problem
Every day, over 8 million tons of plastic makes its way into oceans around the world. That’s up to 90% of the marine debris in some bodies of water. Here at SURFACE PROJECT, we think our planet – and our future – deserves better, and we wanted to do something about it.
SURFACE PROJECT is Denmark’s first 100% sustainable footwear company, creating sneakers, sandals and running shoes entirely from upcycled ocean plastic, post-consumer plastic and reclaimed, natural ingredients. We’ve partnered with the team at Seaquel (www.seaquel.org) who works with fishing boats all around the world to pull macroplastic out of the ocean, which we deconstruct and turn into the material for your SURFACE PROJECT shoes. Then, our shoe lab in Spain assembles each pair using natural cork, reclaimed rubber and chemical-free dyes. And, of course, every purchase is shipped in a carbon-neutral way and arrives in a box made entirely of recycled materials.
This means you can have confidence whenever you wear our shoes – not only that you look great, but that you’re helping the planet as well.
