Did you know that 46,000 pieces of plastic debris float on every square mile of the ocean?
In the U.S., 70 percent of plastics are made from domestic natural gas. By recycling plastics (or upcycling) we make that energy available for other purposes—like heating for the homeless.
Wave Tribe, with a desire to move away from plastic production, uses alternative material such as hemp, cork and upcycled materials in its products.
Upcycling is when you take something that is normally discarded (like a used Billboard advertisement) and then repurpose that material to create a new product (like a rad Wave Tribe board bag).
