Rob Ocean is a clothing line with a sole mission to inspire, encourage and educate us about littering and micro plastics pollution.
We want to push the narrative that if we work together we can have a safe and cleaner planet.
RO was founded in 2021 by Charles J. Maxwell, who saw a need to spread awareness about this global issue. One of our main goals is to create conversations about the nationwide litter problem and the devastation of micro plastic growth all over the world. Micro plastics are fragments of any type of plastic less than 5 mm (0.20 in) in length. Due to sunlight, wind and water it’s a major problem, currently we’re also facing a pollution crisis from untold tons of plastic to carbon emissions and household chemicals getting into our waterways. These tiny fragments of plastic enter our food supply through seafood and sea salt; also other things we use and eat on a daily. Micro plastics also cause pollution by entering our natural ecosystems from a variety of sources, including cosmetics and industrial processes. This topic needs to be brought up in our daily conversations because it affects each and everyone of us. Did you know that plastic doesn't decompose and it could last up to 500 years or more in one form or another?
This crisis started with us and it can end with us.
The Rob Ocean team wanted to create something physical that's innovative as well as making a bold statement about this issue. We are going to make a difference and our vision is to make RO a source for information through fashion and expression about what we are facing today in real time.
