    FROM SEA TO CLOSET: A Sustainable Outerwear Solution

    FROM SEA TO CLOSET: A Sustainable Outerwear Solution

    Here at Seed People’s Market, transparency is of the utmost importance to us when looking at brands to partner with. We seek to curate a store that fits in with our mission of minimizing the garment industry's negative impact on the planet. Outerknown is a company that we can carry with confidence, knowing they are playing their part in shifting the global industry towards sustainability.

    A Shifting Tide 

    World Surf League Champion, Kelly Slater, and renowned designer, John Moore, birthed Outerknown out of a desire to create a surf inspired clothing line without having detrimental effects on the very oceans and planet that they call their home.

    "We created Outerknown to smash the formula. To lift the lid on the traditional supply chain and prove you can actually produce great looking menswear in a sustainable way."  - Kelly Slater

    Introducing ECONYL Technology 



    There are more than 640,000 tons of floating, abandoned fishing nets in our oceans, known as Ghost Nets. These nets are a threat to sea life and global ocean quality. Recently however, new technology is allowing for the breakdown and regeneration of fishing nets into fabrics for clothing.



    Italian based group Aquafil provides incentives for fisherman to turn in their nets instead of improperly disposing them or dumping them into our waters. With these nets, Aquafil combines other pre and post consumer waste fabrics to create an innovative top of the line nylon yarn - ECONYL®. With this closed loop regeneration system, Aquafil can breakdown and rebirth the nylon an infinite amount of times.

    “By collecting the fishing nets that are regenerated into ECONYL® products, we lessen our environmental impact while also cleaning up the oceans that we love so much – and that unique commitment to sustainability is central to who we are as a company” – Kelly Slater


    The Evolution Jacket 


    Through Outerknown's partnership with Aquafil, they have implemented the ECONYL®  technology into a number of their products. One of those products is The Evolution Jacket, a water resistant PFOA-free DWR outer-layer, features 100% ECONYL®  nylon twill, 100% recycled polyester fill, and 100% recycled PET lining. 

    The high performance jacket carries with it a deep respect for the environment and we are proud to offer it at SEED Peoples Market. Come shop the Outerknown Collection and feel confident that the clothes you are choosing are making a positive impact on the planet. 



      Join us on Monday, February 11th, at 3:30pm for a special Storytime! We are honored to have the author and illustrator of the children's storybook, Noodlephant, in to host the reading! 



      "Famous for her pasta parties, Noodlephant is shocked when the law-loving kangaroos decide noodles are only for them! Noodlephant wont let this stand—Noodlephants can't survive on sticks and branches, after all. Determined to do something to push back against an unjust law, she and her friends invent a machine that transforms pens into penne, pillows into ravioli, and radiators into radiatori. With that, the pasta parties are back! But that very night, the kangaroos come bounding through the door ready to enforce their unjust laws.


      A zany tale full of pasta puns, friendship, and one Phantastic Noodler, Noodlephant, written by Jacob Kramer and illustrated by K-Fai Steele, explores a community’s response to injustice."
