Act For Impact
The Origin Story
WHY: Take action on ocean plastic. We’re adding 17 billion lbs a year, 30,000 lbs per minute… At this rate, by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean.
Meet the Shore-Tex™ Daypack – the perfect lightweight daily backpack made entirely from recycled ocean plastics. Feel good knowing you’re helping save our oceans, one bag at a time. This sustainable backpack is made with Shore-Tex™, a textile made from upcycled ocean-bound plastic.

Solgaard’s goal is to be the leader in sustainable luxury goods. They enhance life on-the-go through intentionally designed products, while making a positive impact on the planet. Their goal is to pull 1 million pounds of plastic from the ocean by the end of 2020. For every item sold, Solgaard pulls five pounds of plastic from the ocean. They have partnered with The Plastic Bank, who works with teams in the Philippines creating jobs for locals to pull plastic out of the ocean and upcycle that plastic into useful goods.
Solgaard has removed all single use plastics from its products, and they upcycle ocean waste into useful goods.
