what we do
A passion to educate and inform the world about glacial melt
Every second, Antarctica loses the equivalent of three olympic sized swimming pools worth of ice. In order to combat the global implications of this catastrophic loss, we’ve created a model that proposes a solution. We focus on communicating the reality of climate change in a visual manner so that people can see what is actually happening to the planet as a result of our consumption habits. To further our efforts, we collaborate with apparel brands to provide our audience with a tangible way to support the environmental movement. We then donate a portion of our profits to environmental groups that have greater outreach resources, and who actively combat climate change. Through our efforts, we can help both spread awareness of and fund the environmental movement.
