Seagrass accounts for 10% of the ocean’s capacity to store carbon, despite occupying only 0.2% of the sea floor, and it can capture carbon from the atmosphere up to 35 times faster than tropical rainforests.
Since 1980, we have lost over 35% of our seagrass meadows. That equates to about 1.5% per year, or 2 football fields each hour. This rate of loss is equal to that of coral reefs and rainforests, yet seagrass receives no attention and Project Seagrass are here to change that. They are devoted to the conservation of seagrass ecosystems through education, influence, research and action.
We are donating $1 from every sale to Project Seagrass.

Charities we have supported with our previous collections
For every sale we will donate $2 to One Tree Planted to plant 2 fruit trees / mangroves in India. Fruit trees will be planted predominantly in the rural Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Odisha, and mangroves planted in the Sundarbans. This is an incredible region of marine biodiversity and mangroves here will help with maintaining healthy fisheries, climate resilience, and carbon sequestration.
We will be donating 1% of our Rajasthan range revenue to Sambhali Trust, a charity based in Jodhpur, India whose primary focus is on the development and empowerment of women and girls in Rajasthan. Their essential work includes tackling discrimination (gender, caste and economic), abuse, child marriage and lack of education.
When you think of Borneo, you wouldn’t be wrong to envision sandy beaches, lush greenery, tropical weather and orangutans. Yet did you know it is home to one of the largest rainforests in the world? The Heart of Borneo is not only the largest rainforest in South-east Asia, it is also one of the largest transboundary rainforests (covering Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei) remaining on earth. Yet sadly this rainforest is under threat; Borneo has lost over half of its forest in the last 50 years.
For every pyjama that is purchased from our Borneo range, 1% of the sales will be donated to The Orangutan Project who support the rescue of orangutans displaced through deforestation or stolen from the wild in and around Borneo and Sumatra.
