Who is OceanZen
OceanZen bikini represents a lifestyle that carefree, ocean loving mermaids can easily relate to.
It is the life of a girl who dwells between ocean and land, the gypsy that travels the earth, the ocean addict who thrives off ocean vibes, the barefoot wanderers who have more bikinis than bras and the yogis who are in search of zen.
We see the exquisite beauty in all living things, we take too many leaps of faith and we choose to take the road less travelled. We smile, we laugh, we are fearless, we are wild at heart and we are water-born creatures
We are OceanZen.
OUR SUSTAINABLE VALUES
Apart from just bikinis, our heart truly lies with the wonderland of the marine world.
OceanZen bikini was inspired through a raw and sincere passion for the ocean, but more importantly was inspired through discovering how polluted our oceans are. Creator of OceanZen, Steph Gabriel, has been involved with some incredible research projects around the world and with gaining further knowledge from her bachelor's degree in Environmental Marine Science, sustainable label OceanZen Bikini was born.
From researching humpback whales in Ecuador, living in the remote Galapagos Islands researching Sea Lions and Sharks and the effects of climate change, along with extensive coral reef analysis's, Steph learned of the effects humans were having on the ocean.
The ocean is our last true wilderness that we have left to explore and it needs to be protected. Research shows that only 1 in 5 plastic bottles actually get recycled after single use and every second approximately 1,500 plastic bottles end up either in the ocean or in waste landfills.These numbers are rising. Our oceans are becoming heavily impacted from marine debris, which often consists of single-use plastic packaging; plastic bottles, plastic bags, plastic straws, all of which can potentially take 1000 years to break down.
We are doing our part for the ocean by supporting the removal of plastic bottles and fishing nets from the ocean and re-creating waste into gorgeous, functional swimwear! How amazing is that???!!
OceanZen is proudly a sustainable business and we are 'SAVING THE OCEAN, ONE BIKINI AT A TIME'.
When she hears the fierce ocean, she runs down to the shore, her bare feet folding into the sand, she dives in, opens her eyes, and feels at home. She smiles with the ocean. She is OceanZen. She is you.
