Celebrating World Ocean Day

Every year on June 8th, people around the globe come together to celebrate World Ocean Day. This international event is not only a celebration of the ocean’s beauty and its vast, mysterious depths but also a crucial reminder of the need to protect our planet’s most vital resource.

On World Ocean Day, events and activities around the world highlight the importance of the ocean. These can range from beach clean-ups and educational seminars to art exhibits and social media campaigns.


The ocean spans more than 70% of the Earth’s surface, generates at least half of the planet’s oxygen, and hosts an astonishing variety of life. It plays a crucial role in climate regulation, sustains the livelihoods of millions, and offers recreation and inspiration. However, it is currently under severe threat from pollution, overfishing, and climate change.

With tides indeed changing due to climate shifts and human activities, there is an urgent need for transformative actions and sustainable solutions. Every year, millions of tons of plastic waste are dumped into the ocean, damaging marine life and ecosystems.

Our evolve collection is designed with all of this in mind. Each sofa cushion in our evolve collection is foam-free and padded with Quallofil Blue, which is made with 50% recycled ocean plastics. In fact, every evolve sofa repurposes around 170 bottles! With impeccably soft, recycled fabrics made from regenerated yarns, evolve contributes to reducing textile waste, saving water, and lowering our CO2 emissions.

World Oceans Day serves as a reminder that our health is closely tied to the ocean’s health. The well-being of marine ecosystems is vital for the survival of numerous species, including humans. By taking steps to protect our oceans, we are investing in a sustainable future for ourselves and future generations.

Let’s honour World Oceans Day by committing to actions, both big and small, that help preserve and restore our planet’s most valuable resource. Remember, every drop counts in making waves of change.
