Plastic has created a major problem in our oceans, on our seashores, and on our lands. Because it will never naturally biodegrade, nearly every piece of plastic produced is still in the environment in some form.
This issue causes upwards of 8 million tons of plastic to enter the ocean every year, 80% of which comes from land based sources. This plastic that starts out as litter in the streets or in our parks is being swept into drains and rivers that lead to the ocean.
Which is why for Season 3 of Tikós, we partnered with the National Park Foundation highlighting sixteen national parks and seashores. Made from plastic removed from the oceans as the raw material, our bracelets are worn as a daily reminder to reduce your plastic use, and to protect our oceans, parks, and trails.
Season 3.2 includes: Redwood National Park (REDW), Yellowstone National Park (YELL), White Sands National Park (WHSA), and Padre Island National Seashore (PAIS).
