Copenhagen Cartel: Saving the Ocean, One Swimsuit at a Time

1 min read
Copenhagen Cartel

Copenhagen Cartel is a Danish sustainable luxury swimwear and activewear brand with a noble goal — saving the ocean. The company’s unique approach to environmentally-friendly fashion contributes to reducing discarded fishing nets that kill marine life. Copenhagen Cartel makes bathing suits and sportswear out of recycled nylon trash, such as old fishing nets and fabric pieces from before use. This keeps the nets from being thrown into the seas.

The OCN WEED Collection

The business has also made the unique and durable OCN WEED Collection, which is made of 70% organic cotton and 30% seaweed. Seaweed, called “the bamboo of the ocean,” grows back on its own. The range shows how Copenhagen Cartel is committed to making stylish and comfy clothes from eco-friendly materials.

1% for the Planet

As a member of 1% for the Planet, Copenhagen Cartel gives 1% of its annual profits to approved environmental groups, like the non-profit SEE Turtles, which works to protect turtles. In addition, whenever a product is sold, Copenhagen Cartel gives money to SEE Turtle’s “Billion Baby Turtles” project. Locally, the company has teamed up with the Two Oceans Aquarium’s Turtle Foundation to protect and restore turtles by giving 1% of its South African sales to the foundation.

Lucyanne Macleod and Kate Sadie

This exciting move into the African market is the work of Lucyanne Macleod and Kate Sadie, who are in charge of selling Copenhagen Cartel across Africa and on the islands of Mauritius, Reunion, Seychelles, and the Maldives in the Indian Ocean. The fact that Copenhagen Cartel is expanding into Africa and other places shows that the brand cares about sustainability and wants to make eco-friendly clothing available to people worldwide.

Copenhagen Cartel is one of the good guys. They are working hard to save the ocean, which is a great goal. By producing sustainable and eco-friendly swimwear and activewear from recycled nylon waste and other materials, the company is helping to reduce the silent killer in our seas. Copenhagen Cartel’s growth and expansion, along with its commitment to giving back to the environment through 1% for the Planet and partnerships with local organizations, make it a brand worth supporting. By buying something from Copenhagen Cartel, you can help protect our seas and baby sea turtles.
