Skagen Aaren Ocean Is a Watch Made With Ocean-bound Plastic | Digital Trends

This material was initially released here.

The video, with nearly 85 million views on YouTube, is just one of the many heartbreaking images and videos that illustrate the disturbing state of plastic waste in the oceans. Every year, more than 11 million loads of plastic waste end up in oceans, and the figure might almost triple by 2040.
The wristband, case, and dial of Skagens Aaren Ocean watch are made from fiber-reinforced recycled plastics that would otherwise end up in the ocean. The “sustainable” watch features a 41mm analog dial featuring a wavelike texture.
There are five colors to choose from– gray, black, moss green, dark blue, and white. The white one is a special limited-edition model developed in collaboration with Danish fashion influencer Emilie Lilja.
The Skagen Aaren Ocean watch goes on sale starting today, October 25, for a price of $165. Skagens pro-planet effort also includes packaging made with recycled paper.
A few other tech brands are also taking part in efforts to lower ocean-brand plastic waste by upcycling or recycling it. A few of the recent tech items include Microsofts Ocean Plastic Mouse, the 2020 HP Pavilion laptops, and a “versatile” processor crafted by researchers from ARM and PragmatIC.

The video, with nearly 85 million views on YouTube, is only one of the lots of heartbreaking images and videos that illustrate the upsetting state of plastic waste in the oceans. Every year, more than 11 million heaps of plastic waste end up in oceans, and the figure could nearly triple by 2040. With a mission to offset some of this waste– and hopefully, produce some awareness– Danish watchmaker Skagen has revealed brand-new Aaren Ocean sees made with 100% recycled ocean-bound plastics.
