Ocean Plastic in Andaman Islands with GreenWorms
At Brin, we strive to be a sustainable brand that wants to grow with the planet.
Our aim is to make a difference by reducing the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans each year.

This has devastating consequences for marine life, as well as humans who depend on the oceans for their livelihoods.
In order to make a lasting impact, we need to address the root causes of ocean plastic pollution. That's why our project focuses on working with communities in India where much of the world's Ocean plastic originates. We work with Green Worms Waste Management because they share our commitment to sustainability and have an innovative approach to waste management that creates jobs and improves quality of life in communities with limited resources.

We hope that by working together we can make a difference. As of today, thanks to our community, we've collected :
