"THE OCEAN IS ALIVE AND WE'VE GOT TO TAKE CARE OF IT"
- JACK O'NEILL
JOIN OUR OCEAN MISSION
It is O'Neill's commitment to protect the oceans for generations to come. O'Neill's ocean mission, is to minimise the impact on our planet and become a front runner on sustainability. This began in 1996 when Jack O'Neill founded the Sea Odyssey as a commitment to educating the youth about ocean conservation. Today, O'Neill carries on the spirit of Jack in protecting our playground through ocean initiatives, supply chain, and expanding the O'Neill BLUE sustainable product collection.
We do this by constantly working on 3 main areas:
1. Make our collections as sustainable as possible
2. Shared responsibility across our supply chain
3. Support initiatives to take care of our playground.
O’Neill Blue is our product collection containing sustainable materials. We are proud to say that from wetsuits and lycra to outerwear and apparel, our product line is transitioning to a larger offering of sustainable products. But we won’t stop there... we are dedicated to our long-term mission to move 100% of our product line into our O’Neill Blue collection.
