To raise awareness of the effects of plastic waste in our world’s oceans, all the pieces in G-STAR RAW collection contain recycled plastics. Plastic is a major threat to the health of our oceans due to the rotating water currents in each of the major ocean systems, which accumulate debris fragments into expansive patches. Plastics break down into smaller segments upon long-term exposure to water as well as ultra-violet radiation. Unfortunately, these segments are unusable within the environment, as no natural organism can break down these synthetic molecules. Modifications to the chemical composition of newly manufactured plastic may change this, but until then, conservation initiatives like this G-STAR collection may be the only plan of action to clean our oceans.

"A story is not like a road to follow… it’s more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
— Alice Munro
