Healthy Seas Socks are partially made of old fishing nets. These so-called ghost nets are abandoned or lost in the ocean and are extremely damaging to the beautiful underwater world. In collaboration with the Healthy Seas initiative, Healthy Seas Socks recovers the ghost nets from the ocean to transform them into regenerated nylon.
The Healthy Seas initiative is co-founded by Star Sock, the parent company of Healthy Seas Socks. Star Sock has been a producer of high-quality socks for many decades and now also in a sustainable way. The co-founders of this non-profit initiative are Ghost Diving and Aquafil. Ghost Diving specialises in the recovery of ghost nets and Aquafil produces nylon from waste.
Part of the profit of Healthy Seas Socks is donated to the Healthy Seas initiative. Healthy Seas uses this money for prevention, education, and the continuous recovery of old fishing nets. Since 2013, the Healthy Seas initiative has already recovered more than 500,000 kilo fishing nets. That is how they are making a difference together and how you can minimise your ecological footprint on our planet with such little effort.
Healthy Seas Socks also takes a stand in the worldwide improvement of working conditions in the textile industry. Together with its parent company, Healthy Seas Socks is a member of the Fair Wear Foundation. As a Fair Wear member, Star Sock guarantees that their socks are made with good working conditions and for fair pay.
