At Ziracle, we believe that by improving lots of the small choices we make, miracles are possible. It doesn’t feel right putting our small brand in the same sentence as miracles, but we’ve got to start somewhere and we like to think big.
These discarded nets are spun into a yarn with organic cotton to create an incredibly soft and durable fabric that is perfect for socks. Over time, our goal is to work with various brands that create layers using sustainable materials, produced ethically and in a transparent way. Our team has worked in this space for a while and we’re excited to have you on this journey with us.
We especially love the idea of turning negatives into positives. The first brand we work with is called Healthy Seas Socks and they do exactly that. Their socks are made in partnership with the Healthy Seas Foundation who remove discarded fishing nets from the ocean. These ‘ghost’ fishing nets destroy ocean ecosystems.
Since 2013, the Healthy Seas initiative has collected 453,000 kilos from the ocean.
