Necessity Is The Mother of Invention
After sailing on the San Francisco bay founder and CEO, Sydney Chaney-Thomas decided to start her own sailing apparel brand made from sustainable fabrics.
Having a passion for the health of our environment and oceans, Sydney wanted a sustainable alternative to the current options in outdoor sports apparel, which is, unfortunately, an industry dominated by polyester.
Ocean SF was born out of the inspiration and belief that our clothes can and should be comfortable and beautifully designed, without having a negative impact on our environment.
Shortly after starting Ocean SF, Sydney’s husband died suddenly. There were many obstacles along the way, but Sydney continued to build the Ocean SF brand and attract investors and today Ocean SF is thriving with sales across the country, more products, and a staff of six.
Sydney also teaches Leadership and Management at UC Berkley and writes about building her business and about her life. You can access her published articles here. And, read her lifestyle blog at sydneychaneythomas.com.
Microplastic pollution is a big deal. Every day tiny microplastic particles are shed from our clothes made from synthetic material, like polyester. Water treatment plants are not able to filter all microplastic fibers, causing our oceans and drinking water to become more polluted with plastic. Plus, in producing plastic fibers for polyester clothes, it’s supporting the oil industry which, you know, is casually destroying earth.
Made with 100% natural fabrics, Ocean SF apparel offers a sustainable solution.
Our mission is to create sustainable clothing, educate and inspire others to join in our philosophy, and ultimately engender meaningful change in how people consume clothing and impact the environment.
We would love to hear from you.
