As a Regenerative Brand, Submission Shark strives to be as efficient and sustainable as possible. Which is why we are constantly looking for new ways to reduce our plastic footprint. Submission Shark was recently featured in Handprint.Tech's article highlighting our initiative to implement a plastic clean-up contribution service at no extra costs to you. Along with Seven Clean Seas, we are working towards clean beaches, oceans and rivers!

Plastic pollution has become an epidemic. It is one of the most pressing environmental problems that we are faced with today, and it's only getting worse. We live in a world where plastic is used for everything from straws to food packaging to shopping bags. Plastic doesn't biodegrade, so once it gets into our environment it stays there forever, entering our waterways and oceans where marine life can ingest it or get tangled up in it.
And then there's the problem of all those microplastics that don't even come from larger pieces of plastic--they're created when tiny particles break off from bigger pieces of plastic waste as they decompose! So what does this mean? What will happen if we don't do something about it? Let's take a look at some of the facts.

This interview features a conversation with handprint.tech. We discuss how more and more customers are happy to support brands that focus on regenerative projects and how Submission Shark has integrated it's impressive technology to remove 1kg of plastic per order from the oceans.
This a great introduction to understand the damages of climate change and gives us a hopeful solution to solving this problem together as a community.
