In a collaboration made for beach lovers by beach lovers, Surfrider has teamed up with Pottery Barn Teen to create an all-new, eco-minded collection.
With sustainability as a shared focus, Pottery Barn Teen and the Surfrider Foundation created a coastal-inspired collection of textiles, rugs, and décor with eco-minded materials that are 100% sustainably sourced. Best of all, sales from the all-new Surfrider Foundation Collection will help support Surfrider’s mission to protect the ocean, waves, and beaches – a mission they began in 1984.
“When approaching collaborations, we look for partners that share our core values and are standouts in their field. The Surfrider Foundation is extremely well respected for its ocean preservation and sustainability efforts,” said Jennifer Kellor, President, Pottery Barn Teen. “We joined forces to create a coastal-inspired collection that celebrates the ocean’s natural beauty and makes an impact, using recycled and eco-minded materials.”
Eco-minded materials used in designing this collection include: organic, recycled, and sustainably-sourced resources. Bedding in the collaboration is 100% organic, certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and meets strict social and environmental standards. The collaboration rug is crafted from recycled plastic, derived from old fishnets to decrease ocean pollution and re-imagined into a bold blue and white pattern. The wood décor, including the wall art, uses sun-bleached, sustainably-sourced wood, lessening the environmental impact with responsibly-harvested materials
“Pottery Barn Teen’s new Surfrider collaboration is a great manifestation of the beauty and inspiration provided by the ocean and an equally important reminder that we must all make an effort to protect the sea and resources we treasure,” said the Surfrider Foundation’s CEO, Dr. Chad Nelsen.
