When plastic was invented, it was praised for its ability to “last a lifetime”. Well, in an
ironic twist of fate, it does. It lasts a dozen lifetimes, actually – even when you throw
it out. Plastic has impacted practically every part of modern society and our world is
drowning in it. It is estimated that 100,000 marine animals die from plastic ingestion
annually. And only 10% of plastic is ever recycled.

“Swaggr” socks are made from up to 91% recycled plastic bottles. More than three
bottles are used to make each pair. We believe that we can make a difference if we work
together – one step at a time.
