OUR IMPACT MODEL
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we live, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We are beyond fortunate to live on this beautiful part of this planet and intend to keep it this way.
For every A_C product sold, $5.00 is donated to develop Sea Forests off the coast of Tasmania, Australia.
At A_C, we recognise that everything we produce has an impact on the planet. We believe the fashion industry can regenerate our natural environment instead of depleting it if we measure our impact and invest in proven methods to counteract it. To offset our production’s carbon emissions, we have partnered with the Climate Foundation.
Our donations work to fund the build of the physical framework and wages required to implement an underwater forest. Sea Kelp trees are estimated to be the fastest growing ‘tree’ on the planet, growing at a rate of half a metre a day and thought to be the most effective in reducing the Ocean’s alkalinity whilst rapidly sequestering Carbon. In October 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. The report makes it clear that Climate Change is happening, occurring faster, and posing greater risk to businesses and livelihoods globally than previously estimated. By implementing this Offsetting Program, we are able to reduce our Carbon Footprint while regenerating our other great love, the Ocean.

"It is too late to avoid causing damage to the earth,
we must actively reverse it."

Because we intend to cause no harm.
We apply this word to the treatment of the planet, people and the animals. Through out the life and production of our wares, there is to be no suffering in any capacity.
Because this isn't a movement exclusive to us. It requires a major shift in human behaviour in the way we produce and the way we consume.
