#YooxLovesTheReef: Beautiful Swimwear Saving the Reef

Posted on Oct 30 2017 - 9:01pm by Ronnie

I love when fashion brands support environmental protection efforts.

That’s why I was excited when one of my fave clothing brands, Yoox, launched a super-cool project to protect the world’s largest coral reef: #YooxLovesTheReef

And I’m all about supporting them, too. 🙂

What’s the “Yoox Loves the Reef” project?

Yoox wants to help save the Great Barrier Reef.

To contribute to the protection, they created an exclusive collection in collaboration with the Australian brand We Are Handsome. The collection was created exclusively to support the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.

Purchase any items from the collection and you will be contributing to protecting and conserving the Great Barrier Reef!

What’s happening to the Great Barrier Reef?

Today’s coral reefs are being destroyed. 🙁

Among those endangered coral reefs is the Great Barrier Reef, the largest living organism in the world.

The Great Barrier Reef is threatened by climate change and other major environmental pressures like decreased water quality from land-based runoff and impact from fishing activities and coastal developments.

In 2016 alone, 67% of corals died in the reef’s worst-hit northern section due to rising water temperatures.

Yoox and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation are trying to protect this reef from further destruction. Part of the proceeds from the collection will go to supporting scientific research and on-ground projects to restore and protect the reef.

Yoox and We are Handsome have designed a variety of swimwear with a reef-inspired pattern.

Here are my fave pieces:

  • So sad to lose the Barrier Reef 🙁 These are gorgeous costumes going to a great cause x

  • It’s sad to see nature’s wonders crumbling. I try my best to help out as much as I can, using eco-friendly products and reducing waste. I think it’s good that there’s an initiative to help save the Great Barrier Reef.

    Great initiative by Yoox. I hope more people will become aware of the current environmental issues and take part in saving the environment by doing even the simplest things such as recycling and proper waste segregation.

  • Ugh. It’s so sad to hear that this natural beauty is being destroyed but I am truly NOT surprised at all. We humans tend to always destroy things but the great thing is, we are taking NOTE of said destruction and are now trying to change our ways! I am going to check out YOOX and see if I like anything 🙂

    Wow!! This is such a great way to save the environment by doing something like this, It’s so sad that today’s coral reef was already destroyed by the climate change. and I really like the variety of swimwear with a reef-inspired pattern. Awesome idea!!

    It is very alarming that year by year, the destruction of coral reefs becomes bigger and bigger. It is for us to help and make every single effort to sustain the life in the sea bed. This is a good idea to spread the awareness to everyone.

    It is an awesome campaign that the Great Barrier Reef Foundation and Yoox are doing to protect the Great Barrier Reef. I would so love to see the reefs some day and I think it is so sad that so much has died. Thanks for sharing the awesome campaign.
