Our Story

We started Cove with one goal in mind: to make a difference. Growing up in Southern California, most of our time was spent on or near the beach. Although we have been fortunate enough to experience the beauty our oceans and beaches have to offer, we have also witnessed the impact of human pollution firsthand. We have always collected the bits of trash we see in the water and on the sand, but while the gesture is grand, the impact is small. We believed that independently it would be difficult to create a large enough impact, so we began to think about what we could achieve by working together.

Our Partnerships

In order to make the largest impact possible we are Certified One Pound Partners with 4Ocean, meaning for every single item we sell, we provide the funding for 4Ocean’s crews to Remove One Pound of Debris from Oceans and Coastlines around the world. Through this partnership, we will fund the removal of hundreds of thousands of pounds of trash from our Oceans and Coastlines every single year.

Our Promise

We couldn’t just stop at clean ups! We had to make sure we weren’t contributing to the problem we are solving every day. By focusing on quality over quantity, and ensuring that every garment we produce will last for decades, we are also reducing the harmful effects of clothing production on our planet. From our inception we have pledged to only partner with verified suppliers who follow strict ethical and sustainability requirements. Additionally, every single order placed on our website is packaged and shipped in 100% home compostable parcels derived from plant based materials and we use zero plastic packaging on any of our garments.

Our Impact

The final piece to the puzzle is enabling & encouraging you to #BeTheDifference in your everyday life. Through Cove sponsored clean ups, scholarships, and grants, we are engaging local communities to turn off the plastic tap at its source, and fund the individuals researching solutions to a cleaner future.
