Over the past year or so, we’ve covered a number of Time for Action watches from Triwa, with many of the more recent ones featuring cases made of recycled ocean plastic. Fittingly, for the material, their latest collaboration is the Triwa x Sea Shepherd.
Who – or what – is Sea Shepherd? It’s the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and they’re doing what they can to help preserve our aquatic ecosystems. That seems to fit right in with pulling plastic from the oceans and recycling it into something else – like a watch case and watch strap. So, it’s a very literal way to put ocean conservancy into action, in our book.
Of course, if you pick up your own Triwa x Sea Shepherd, you’ll be proudly flying the Sea Shepherd colors on your wrist, as well as helping to support the organization. You see, 15% of the proceeds of selling the watch (which runs $159) will be going directly to Sea Shepherd. Check out the details over at triwa.com
