Let's Make An Impact
We're Part of Nature
Our natural world is something to marvel, and here at Flood Tide Co. we understand that we are part of nature and not separate. As anglers, artists, fishing bums and vagabonds, we're deeply connected to tides that swell during full and new moon’s and create our namesake.
Because of our love and respect for nature, we're deadset on promoting the outdoor pursuits available to everyone and encouraging people to get out there and explore this beautiful blue planet. It's our belief that people protect what they love. We do this by creating unique, every-day designs and artwork that are made to inspire and also express our gratitude for nature. We know our customers feel the same way and are proud to deliver apparel for your next adventure.
How Can We Try to Make an Impact?
We made a conscious decision as a company to support what we believe in, which is why we became 1% for the Planet Members back in 2016. This means we donate 1% of our yearly sales to environmental nonprofits. We're proud to support the work of the Galveston Bay Foundation and Charleston Waterkeeper who both work diligently to protect our waterways from plastic pollution and keep our waterways clean while enhancing the fisheries we love.
We're forever grateful for these organizations doing the good work to keep our waterways clean, so we decided to take a look in the mirror to see if we could improve the environmental performance of our own operations and products. For 2019, we're stoked to be working towards a goal of sending zero waste to the landfill by implementing our recycling and composting program at the Flood Tide Co. Laboratory!
Using Repreve Fabrics
Did you know that it is estimated to be more plastic (by weight) than fish in the ocean by 2050? We couldn’t believe it either, but after witnessing first-hand the negative impact of plastic pollution locally, and also in chasing fish in locations around the world, we wanted to increase our commitment to sustainability in some way. The answer came in the form of Repreve fabrics. Repreve is made from recycled plastic bottles. Furthermore each t-shirt is made right here in the USA (in North Carolina in fact). Not only is each t-shirt helping support environmental nonprofits and keeps plastic bottles out of the landfill and our waterways, but it's support hard working Americans as well. Learn more about Repreve here.
We're also proud to now be supporting American farmers and manufacturing! All of our t-shirts, including our Pima Cotton pocket tees, are now made with USA grown cotton and Made in the USA.
We're here to keep the good times rollin' and make products you love. So let's do some good clean livin'!
