OCN WEED® contains innovative seaweed fibres that safeguard the future by saving water - unlike conventional cotton, which requires extreme amounts of water when produced. OCN WEED® contains 30 % seaweed fibres (SeaCell™) and 70 % organic cotton, where the seaweed fibres make the feel slightly softer than cotton. The product is pre-washed, meaning it won't shrink when washed.
We have created a strict code of conduct to protect our precious nature. We harvest our seaweed off the coast of Iceland. We only harvest from the same area once every four years to ensure complete regrowth between harvests and to preserve ecological value.
Why seaweed? We’re glad you asked! Seaweed is a naturally regenerative resource that grows abundantly in our oceans, meaning no fresh water is needed during the growth stage.
All this makes seaweed the optimal replacement for conventional cotton fibres, and it helps us save the planet's precious resource - freshwater - that the cotton industry uses in vast amounts.
Water is our source of life, but water shortage already affects more than 40 percent of the world's population, and the problem is only expected to grow in the future. According to WWF, the production of an average conventional cotton t-shirt requires up to 2700 litres of freshwater. Unlike conventional cotton, seaweed is a natural and regenerative resource that already exists in abundance under the sea and needs nothing more than the water it already sits in.
