Our goal is to keep plastic, particularly the plastic water bottles that Silverback apparel is made from, out of the ocean and landfills. According to Condor Ferries of the UK we, humans, are polluting the ocean with 12.7 million tons of plastic waste every year. There are now 5.25 trillion tons of macro and micro pieces of plastic in our ocean and about 46,000 pieces in every square mile of ocean, weighing up to 269,000 tons. Every day about 8 million pieces of plastic make their way into our oceans. 88% of the sea’s surface is polluted by plastic waste. Silverback Hawaii LLC aims to do its part in cleaning the environment by the creation of sustainable products, and taking an active role in reversing the negative impact of plastic pollution.
Our dream is to not only keep plastic out of the oceans and landfills by recycling it into our products, but in cooperation with other environmental agencies and institutions, contribute to beach, ocean, and waterway cleanups. Silverback would like to give back.
