We started UPSAINT while working together in a stuffy office selling software to marketers. The vibe in the office was dryer than leftover Thanksgiving turkey. To kill time, we always talked about clothing and shirts that you can wear in the office or navigating a day at the beach.
Our styles couldn't be more different. One loves fashion and living for a cause, and one is a conservationist who has always loved turtles. We put our heads together to create an apparel line that had conservation for our mutual love, turtles.
UPSAINT is a company that not only provides fashion forward apparel, but was born to help giving baby turtles a clean ocean to grow old in. Each shirt is made from recycled plastic water bottles to reduce plastic waste. The buttons are crafted from coconut shells instead of standard plastic buttons that's on virtually every other button down shirt on the market.
6 of the 7 species of sea turtles are considered threatened or endangered and it's due to human action and our dependency on plastic. Plastic that unfortunately, makes its way back to the ocean.
To help clean the oceans, providing turtles a clean place to grow old, while creating bold apparel.
