Mission

Our Mission

The ocean might seem far away from our offices, but our team member Billy is actively engaged on the north shore of Java, Indonesia, where he manages our clean-up activities to gradually clear the sea from plastic.

Honor the ocean with our IMPACT SHIRT

Carry your goodwill out into the world with your IMPACT SHIRT made of 100% organic cotton and monochrome prints. With your IMPACT SHIRT, you support our vision to rid the oceans of plastic. 

Be part of our mission: from every IMPACT SHIRT bought, an additional 5 kg of marine plastic is recovered from our clean-up in Indonesia, which can be recycled in the next step. The additional plastic then flows into our sustainable production cycle.

  • FAQ

    Why is the shirt not made of ocean plastic?

    A shirt made of 100% organic cotton was the right choice for us because we want to avoid the formation of microplastics during washing. Even though it is technically possible for us to make a shirt from ocean plastic, it is not an option for us, as microplastics dissolve when washing and end up in the ocean again.

    How is microplastic formed during washing?

    Each laundy run loosens tiny plastic particles made of synthetic fibers such as polyester, polyethylene and elastane, which are washed into the environment. With low washing temperatures and shorter wash cycles, fewer particles are released. That’s why it is best to use clothing made of natural fibers.

    How sustainable are your logistical routes and the packaging material?

    We take our mission seriously. Your order should be delivered to your doorstep with as few emissions as possible. That’s why we choose trains to Europe and ships to the US as our means of transport. All of our packaging is FSC-certified. Currently we are also working on climate-neutral options, to at least carbon offset our shipping methods with our carriers.

Ever since we started our journey in 2016, we’ve been pursuing our goal of cleaning the oceans from plastic waste!

How we turn trash into treasure!

Our network of 1,500 fishermen on the north shore of Indonesia collects ocean plastic as by-catch. The plastic is cleaned and sorted before processed.

The PET portion of the by-catch is shredded into pellets, while all other unusable parts of the recovered plastic are discarded according to the right recycling chain.
progress-arrow
The pellets are shipped to our production facility, where they are turned into a high-quality yarn.

The yarn is ultimately turned into a polyester fabric, which is waterproof thanks to an innovative BIO-PU coating and the foundation for your GOT BAG.

Recycling of ocean plastic

By using recycled PET, we made the commitment to utilize an eco-friendly alternative to new plastic in our yarn production. One metric ton of recycled PET saves 3.8 barrels of oil, 1.700 litres of water, and reduces the CO2 emission by 139 tons compared to the industry standard. So far, we were able to recycle more than 100 tons of ocean plastic.

Sociological & ecological values

Providing environmentally and socially compatible products is not enough for us. We also organize training sessions on waste separation for the local community on Java, to create a collective awareness about plastic pollution. GOT BAG also helps to support the establishment of a waste infrastructure in rural areas. In the long term, we hope to persuade the local government to rethink the way it operates Indonesia’s waste management system.

Innovative BIO-PU coating

Sustainable down to the last fiber! The fabric of every GOT BAG is water-repellent thanks to an innovative BIO-PU coating, which uses significantly less water and oil during production, while also emitting less CO2 than traditional coating processes. The coating is 100% biodegradable and all of our products are free from PFC.

THE GOT BAG CYCLE

With our GOT BAG CYCLE, we decided to rely on a sustainable life cycle approach guided by nature.

We recycle plastic waste to manufacture premium yarns, which we ultimately use to sew our long-lasting products. Every single GOT BAG product is of the highest quality and durable. If you still encounter problems with one of our products, or if the product gets damaged, we offer you a repair service. If we exchange your GOT BAG, we will re-recycle the material for our next production line to make sure that the plastic will never end up in our oceans again.
