O3 Apparel was founded on the basis of two principles: the first is that making a difference in our environment is a priority and the second is that sustainability is a powerful trend that can change the world. We make it our mission to embody sustainability and social impact in the work we do every day by ensuring that all of our products are created with eco-friendly and recycled materials.
We are compelled by a relentless passion to raise awareness about our current plastics problem and that motivates what we do every day. We strive to inspire others with that passion so we can expand the network of support beyond t-shirts and sweatshirts. We hope our brand will increase conscious consumer practices and make our vision of the world with less plastic pollution a reality.
We strive to better our local community through our business, and we pledge to donate 10 percent of our total profit to the Gumbo Limbo Recreational Center which works to rehabilitate and treat injured sea animals, especially sea turtles that have been impacted by plastic pollution.
We are a team of nine high school students in the entrepreneurial program at Saint Andrew's School in Boca Raton, Florida. We are striving to build a brand and create a movement to create positive, sustainable change in our community, and throughout the world.
