Where Waste Meets Purpose to #doDifferent
South Africa has a rich biodiversity and natural beauty, but it is also facing the challenges of waste management and sustainability. The country generates over 54 million tonnes of waste per year, of which only 10% is recycled. The rest is either landfilled or incinerated, which harms the environment. Several things can be done to address the waste problem in South Africa. This week we are looking at a brand that strives to #doDifferent for South Africa, moving towards a more sustainable future.
Nestled amidst the majestic folds of Table Mountain, Sealand stands as a beacon of sustainability and innovation, a testament to the power of transforming waste into enduring creations. Born from the passion of two surfers, a dog, and a Cruiser, Sealand embodies a spirit of adventure and a deep-rooted connection to nature.
At the heart of Sealand's ethos lies a commitment to environmental consciousness. Their timeless, durable gear and apparel are crafted from waste, giving life to discarded materials that would otherwise pollute our planet. This transformative approach redefines fashion, placing sustainability at the forefront.
Inspired by the boundless energy of the ocean, Sealand's products are designed to accompany you on every adventure, whether traversing mountain trails or navigating urban landscapes.
