IRVINE, CA. – Razer ™, the world’s leading gaming lifestyle brand (Hong Kong Stock Code: 1337), today presents the Kanagawa Wave clothing collection, a series of limited edition garments made from materials created from recovered marine plastic. The clothing, adorned with a stylized depiction of the famous Big Wave on Kanagawa wood carving, is designed to highlight the problem of marine plastic pollution and will fund efforts to reduce marine plastic to protect the oceans and their inhabitants.
Fans will have to be fast
The collection will fall on April 7, 2021 at 7:00 PM PDT, in strictly limited quantities, so fans who want to grab this exclusive Kanagawa Wave lineup must act fast and visit razer.com/gear-and-apparel/kanagawa-wave be notified when the wave will break. With Razer’s latest outfit drop, ‘GAMING APE’, which sells in minutes, fans are advised to sign up early so they don’t miss their set.
Each item in the range, which includes a hood, T-shirt, sleeveless T-shirt, shorts and hat, is created using high-quality fabrics made from 100% recycled marine plastic. The fabrics are manufactured as part of a broader program to remove marine plastics from the sea and recycle them into useful products, which now includes Razer’s stylish Kanagawa Wave clothing.
Approximately 11 million tons of plastic enter the oceans each year, seriously endangering marine life and entering the food chain. To further reduce the problem, proceeds from the Kanagawa Wave collection will be directed toward the recovery of marine plastics in some of the world’s most endangered areas on the coast and marine life. For each piece of item sold in this collection, Razer will fund the recovery of 1kg of marine plastic.
#GoGreenWithRazer and help save the planet
The Kanagawa Wave Apparel is the second of Razer’s environmentally focused initiatives under the recently announced #GoGreenWithRazer banner, and continues to be extremely successful and ongoing. Protection program led by Razer’s mascot Snack Snack, which exceeded the original goal of rescuing 100,000 trees and now wants to save 1,000,000 trees.
Through these and other upcoming initiatives and actions, Razer wants to engage and encourage the community to help preserve nature and ensure that the world remains an arena where we can all continue to play.
