Vantage Apparel, a supplier of custom-branded apparel, proudly announced a cumulative contribution of over $30,000 to Clean Ocean Action as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability.

According to Vantage, this donation is in line with Vantage’s participation in the 1% for the Planet initiative, reinforcing its dedication to making a positive impact on the environment.

In 2021, Vantage launched its proprietary Earthwise collection. Most styles in the collection are made with Repreve, a recycled polyester made from recycled plastic water bottles, helping reduce plastic waste in our world’s oceans and landfills — all of which are part of 1% for the Planet. Distributors have helped recycle more than 1.5 million water bottles since the launch of Vantage’s Earthwise collection.

Vantage chose Clean Ocean Action, a member of 1% for the Planet, as its charitable partner for this endeavor, recognizing the organization’s tireless efforts in preserving and protecting the world’s oceans and coastlines. In addition to its annual monetary donations to Clean Ocean Action, Vantage continues its stewardship by volunteering in beach clean-up events every year.

“We are honored to have Vantage’s continued support and generous donations that directly support Clean Ocean Action’s initiatives to combat pollution, promote marine conservation, and raise awareness about the importance of a clean and healthy ocean environment,” stated Cindy Zipf, executive director of Clean Ocean Action. “The funds will be utilized to implement impactful projects, organize educational programs, and contribute to the ongoing research aimed at safeguarding marine ecosystems.”

Vantage CEO Rob Watson expressed enthusiasm about the company’s involvement in the 1% for the Planet program and the partnership with Clean Ocean Action, saying, “At Vantage Apparel, we understand the importance of environmental responsibility, and we are committed to making a positive difference. Our contribution to Clean Ocean Action is a testament to our dedication to sustainable business practices and the preservation of our planet for future generations.”

Clean Ocean Action is a non-profit organization that has been at the forefront of environmental advocacy for over four decades. According to Vantage Apparel, the organization’s commitment to addressing marine pollution and promoting clean and healthy oceans aligns seamlessly with Vantage’s values.

Vantage Apparel invites customers, partners, and stakeholders to join them in supporting Clean Ocean Action and the broader mission of 1% for the Planet by continuing to purchase styles from its Earthwise collection.
