The Razer, a lifestyle brand for gamers, has just launched the Kanagawa Wave, a line of clothing made from plastics collected from the oceans and then recycled. In limited edition, the collection features a stylized design of the famous artwork “The Great Wave of Kanagawa”, recreated to draw attention to the problem of pollution of the seas. For each piece in the collection that is sold, Razer will finance the recovery of 1kg of marine plastic, expanding efforts to protect the planet and its inhabitants.
The new products can be purchased exclusively by RazerStore.com, in countries where the virtual store is present, from 3 pm (Brasilia) on April 7th. There will be no sale in Brazil. The collection includes a sweatshirt, a short-sleeved t-shirt, a tank top, a shorts and a cap, all in high-quality fabric made from plastics collected from the sea and recycled 100%.
Plastic harms and threatens marine life and the food chain, and is one of today's worst polluters. Approximately 11 million tons of plastic are recovered from the ocean each year. To help alleviate this problem, proceeds from the sale of the Kanagawa Wave clothing line will go towards recovering this waste from coastal areas around the world.
#GoGreenWithRazer helps save the planet
The Kanagawa Wave collection, by Razer, is the brand's second initiative related to environmental protection. The first #GoGreenWithRazer action, recently announced and still ongoing, is the Conservation Program led by Razer's mascot Sneki Snek, which has already surpassed its initial goal of preserving 100,000 trees and now targets the 1 million saved unit mark.
Through these and upcoming initiatives, Razer wants to engage and unite the gaming community to help preserve nature and ensure the world is a place where we can all continue to play.
