Gentle, docile and actually the largest fish in the ocean. These friendly giants are solitary creatures and have a lifespan of up to 100 to 150 years. They are beautifully marked with their own unique patterns of white spots and like all sharks they are not to be feared but respected. The majestic whale shark has no natural predators, except for humans.
Humans kill 3 sharks every single second. These gentle giants are killed for their fins for Chinese medicine and shark fin soup. Whale Sharks are also subject to overfishing and the negative impacts of ecotourism and the implications these practices have on their behaviour, they are in decline, vulnerable and confirmed endangered.
Our T-Shirts are made of 100% Bamboo!
Bamboo helps clean the air. Bamboo absorbs 5 x more CO2 from the air than hardwood trees. Not only that, two thirds of the carbon is stored in the soil and root system which – unlike trees and cotton – isn’t dug up when the bamboo is harvested so the carbon stays in the ground.
Bamboo doesn’t need nasty pesticides in order to grow well. Pesticides often contaminate rivers and oceans and damage surrounding ecosystems.
Our bamboo is super soft! The fabric feels amazing next to even the most sensitive skin. It is dense enough to keep you warm but breathable and thin so you don’t overheat. You won’t want to take it off. You’ll need one for going out, staying in and adventures.
Bamboo is also 3 times more absorbent than cotton so you feel comfy and dry even in humid climates. It will also make you less smelly (not that you’re smelly!) because moisture can’t get to the odour-causing bacteria.
